Not to be confused with “You Are My Friend” – the Tom Hanks-associated Mister Rogers film, a trailer for “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” was released today, the birth day of the late Fred Rogers.
The beloved children’s television star passed away over 15 years ago and now “Won’t You Be My Neighbor” will take a closer look at how the show went against every model for a successful TV show. Rogers provided children with compassionate messages about divorce, death, race, and more.
Mister Rogers Neighborhood lasted an incredible 31 seasons, so it is no surprise that Fred Rogers touched the lives of almost everyone we know. Today would’ve been his 90th birthday, and fans from around the world are celebrating.
“Won’t You Be My Neighbor” will be released in select theatres on June 8th.
