Tom Hanks as Mister Rogers: A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood Trailer

Like a lot of people, I was on a big Fred Rogers kick last year in the wake of Won’t You Be My Neighbor? I did a full-on deep dive, watching other documentaries, old interviews, I read three books on the man. I even got a Mister Rogers t-shirt for Christmas.

So as you can imagine, I was quite invested in the trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, which dropped today.

For me personally, it took a minute to project Fred Rogers on to Tom Hanks. I think it’s Hanks’ voice. Rogers had such a distinct pitch to his voice that it’s a big adjustment to hear someone else saying “his” words. But by the end of the vid, I’d warmed up to it. Tom Hanks is obviously a great casting choice.

Take a look for yourself…

 A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood hits theaters November 22.
