Late last year, Meadow Walker settled her lawsuit with Porsche over the death of her father, the late, great Paul Walker.
Now, his family and loved ones are honoring him with a documentary about him, titled I Am Paul Walker.
In the trailer for it below, you can see previously unreleased footage of him. Take a look:
After a glimpse of footage at a young teenage Paul getting nervous in front of a camera, his brother Cody Walker speaks.
“He was a big kid,” Cody says of his dearly departed brother. “He was a big kid.”
Director Wayne Kramer also speaks about Paul.
“That guy made the best of every single minute,” Wayne says.
Wayne continues, saying: “He lived five lifetimes.”
Paul was also survived by his sister, who speaks about how she remembers him
“He liked to go fast,” Ashe Walker says. “As soon as I was old enough to hold on tight, I was on the back of his bigwheel with him going for the ride of my life.”
Oakley Lehman, a childhood friend and a stunt performer, speaks of Paul’s complexity and apparent contradictions.
“The gun-toting hippie,” Oakley says of his late friend, praising Paul as the “balance of opposites.”
“You know?” Oakley continues. “A lover and a fighter.”
Another childhood friend, Andy Muxlow, refers to Paul’s perpetual free spirit.
“He’s definitely not a puppet,” Andy says.
“You know?” Andy asks. “He’s definitely not somebody that’s gonna just be told to do something and then do it.”
Director Rob Cohen says that, as much as fans grew to love Paul Walker through the camera, that barely scratched the surface on the man he knew.
“Cinema didn’t capture it all,” Rob laments. “Couldn’t capture it all.”
Rob summarizes Paul’s priorities in life: “‘My daughter, my surfing. That’s the life. And that’s what I care about.'”
Matt Luber, Paul’s manager, speaks about how Paul was not obsessed with is status as a celebrity or even as an actor.
“Paul was always an actor who had one foot in and one foot out. He could just disappear,” Matt says.
Caleb Walker, Paul’s other brother, speaks of Paul’s occassional impulses and fantasies of solitary anonymity.
“He’d always say, like, ‘I want to be a park ranger.’ You know?” Caleb says. “Make 28 grand a year, live in the wilderness. That’s really what he wanted to do.”
Rhett Walker, Paul’s uncle, gushes about the impact that his late nephew had on countless individuals.
“I can actually say he did a lot of things that made a lot of difference in a lot of people’s lives,” Rhett says.
Not everyone can say the same.
Tyrese Gibson is an actor and was one of Paul’s costars in the Fast and Furiousfranchise.
“He was a giver,” Tyrese says. “If you loved him the way we did, you would say ‘Well, why him and not us?'”
That is a normal way to grieve a lost friend.
I Am Paul Walker premieres on August 11 at 9pm on the Paramount Network.
