PHOENIX – Most of us grew up with Mister Rogers – a man who loved his sweaters and always taught us a lesson about right from wrong.
Tom Hanks has the privilege of slipping on one of those sweaters in a new movie called A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood, a play on one of Roger’s favorite phrases. It goes on about the life of Fred Rogers and his television show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
It seems only fitting that this story is re-done with the proper Hollywood treatment.
The trailer just dropped and we think he would be proud! It even includes Rodgers’ introduction song and takes you behind the making of his hit show and the man in front of the camera. Tom Hanks is the perfect fit to play our neighbor and bring back all the nostalgia.
Fred Rogers died in 2003 from stomach cancer.
