It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood, to watch the new Mr Rogers Movie trailer. The newly released trailer of the highly anticipated Won’t You Be My Neighbor? shows an intimate look at America’s favourite neighbor.The documentary about Rogers, an ordained Presbyterian minister, and the television show that he spear-headed and fought for that changed the face of children’s programming and many children’s lives.
If there’s one thing we learned from the incredible work of Mister Fred Rogers, it was that a little kindness can make a world of a difference. Inspiring, motivating, emotional… it’s difficult to watch this whole trailer without getting a little choked up [although James claims he didn’t].
The doc explores Mr Rogers’ messages about love compassion, lessons on death, assassination, divorce, and caring for and accepting our neighbors. The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year, already drumming up sweet reviews.
Mr Rogers Movie will be in select theatres June 8th, which would have been Rogers’ 90th birthday.
