It’s a beautiful day to return to Mr. Rogers’ neighborhood.
The trailer for an upcoming documentary about the late children’s show host, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor,” was released yesterday, which would have been Fred Rogers’ 90th birthday. And it’s bound to make many Mr. Rogers fans tear up.
The movie, directed by Oscar-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville, follows the popular PBS children’s show “Mr. Rogers’ Neighborhood” and its beloved host from its debut in 1968 through 2001, and showcases generations of kids inspired to grow up as empathetic human beings.
The trailer shows footage and interviews with colleagues and also features interviews with Rogers himself, who died in 2003 at age 74.
“Won’t You Be My Neighbor” will premiere in theaters on June 8.
