WATCH: Soccer's GOAT Reflects On His Life in Netflix's Pelé Trailer

  • Netflix has released the full trailer for Pelé, a documentary profiling the biggest star in the history of fútbol, better known stateside as soccer.

    The new trailer features images from the childhood of Edson Arantes do Nascimento and his ascendency in the sport to become a larger than life figure, raising the international profile of his native Brazil. We also see present-day Pelé reflecting on the perils of stardom, as an attempted military coup divided the nation, pressuring him to publicly choose a side. 

    Pelé premieres February 23 on Netflix.

    Andy Hunsaker has a head full of sitcom gags and nerd-genre lore, and can be followed @AndyHunsaker if you're into that sort of thing.
