Everyone loves Mr. Rogers and a fictionalized movie drama based on a true story is hitting theaters just in time for Thanksgiving.
The first trailer A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood featuring Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers is here!
Here’s the movie’s official synopsis:
Tom Hanks portrays Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, a timely story of kindness triumphing over cynicism, based on the true story of a real-life friendship between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod. After a jaded magazine writer (Emmy winner Matthew Rhys) is assigned a profile of Fred Rogers, he overcomes his skepticism, learning about empathy, kindness, and decency from America’s most beloved neighbor.
The trailer reveals that Tom Hanks isn’t trying to put up a serious Mr. Rogers impression, but instead add his own unique skills to create his own interpretation of Mr. Rogers himself.
We think the casting is awesome, Tom Hanks totally makes the perfect Mr. Rogers.
