The movie, called A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, is about Mister Rogers' Neighborhood host Fred Rogers' relationship with journalist Tom Junod, whose outlook on life changed while he was writing a magazine profile of Rogers.

The trailer features Hanks, donning the iconic red sweater, singing, "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" as a spot-on Rogers.

Daniel Tiger even makes an appearance.
