Grab Your Cardigan : New Trailer For ‘Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ Released
Just a few weeks before the theatrical release, the second trailer for 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood' starring Tom Hanks has been released and by viewing it, you’re going to need a ton of tissues to get through the movie.
The highly anticipated biopic of the much-loved children's host Mr. Rogers is set to hit theaters November 22nd just in time for the holiday season. The film is centered on Fred Rogers' relationship with journalist Tom Junod, whose life changed during his time writing a magazine profile of Rogers back in 1998.
In a PEOPLE exclusive behind the scenes look of 'A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood', Rogers widow Joanne, now 91, gave her overwhelming approval of Hanks portrayal of her late husband. “One of the most wonderful things about this film is that Tom Hanks is playing Fred Rogers. Fred Rogers was a huge fan of Tom Hanks,” Joanne says. “He looks adorable as Fred.” Joanne went on to say the timing of the film is very important. “I think he would like this very much,” Joanne says. “There’s a wonderful energy there. It’s a very needful film right now.”
'Mister Rogers Neighborhood' aired for 31 seasons starting in 1968 before coming to an end in 2001. Fred Rogers died two years later in 2003.
Tomorrow, November 13th, is World Kindness Day and many organizations across the country are encouraging people to wear a cardigan like Mr. Rogers and spread kindness to others. Sounds like the perfect way to honor one amazing, kind man.
