Tom Hanks is Mister Rogers in ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ Trailer

All aboard the feel train, choo choo.

There is a pretty good chance that if you’re reading this you grew up with Mister Rogers Neighborhood. There’s also a pretty good chance you’ve seen a Tom Hanks film or two. Tom Hanks is playing Fred Rogers in ‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’, and after watching this trailer I can fully say you will see grown men cry in the theaters after watching this movie.

The film follows Lloyd Vogel (Matthew Rhys), a journalist for Esquire Magazine and his task to interview Fred Rogers. Rogers is well into his career by this point in the movie. In the beginning, most adults are pretty cautious of Fred, there’s something about him just being a generally nice guy that people aren’t too sure what to think. Over the course of the movie, Vogel changes his opinion and Mister Rogers helps him to grow even as an adult.

If you can’t tell I’m very excited for this movie, and I’m sensing an early Oscar contender.


‘A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood’ releases on November 22, 2019.
