A career-spanning documentary on the life and times of Ronnie James Dio will be released this year. The news was revealed by Dio’s wife and manager Wendy in a new interview.
“It’s coming out [later this] year,” Wendy told Argentinian journalist Lucas Gordon. “I [recently] saw the first cut of it. It was very emotional. It’s very different from [Dio’s autobiography]. ‘Cause the book finishes in 1986, with Ronnie playing Madison Square Garden. But the documentary goes all the way through his life till the end.”
Wendy said she was watching the film with her publicist and a person from BMG, who are funding the documentary.
“And we all cried. It was very emotional. But it’s really interesting and really good,” she added.
SiriusXM radio personality Eddie Trunk and Mick Wall, the author of Dio’s autobiography, narrated the documentary.
The untitled documentary will be the first to be fully authorized by the the legendary rock icon’s estate.
