WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR Trailer Looks Back at Mister Rogers' Legacy

Focus Features celebrates Fred Rogers 90th birthday with a new trailer for the upcoming documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor

A new documentary promises to be a sweet visit with an old neighbor.

The first trailer is here for "Won't You Be My Neighbor?", a documentary about Fred Rogers, the host of the classic children's television show. Then-curator Dwight Blocker Bowers said, "Mister Rogers' style of comfort and warmth, of one-on-one conversation, is conveyed in that sweater".

And yet, the series, with its low production values and unlikely star, not only worked, but became iconic, an exemplar of children's TV programming. How?

"If you take all the elements that make good television and do the exact opposite, you have "Mr. Rogers" Neighborhood, "' show producer Margy Whitmer says in the documentary. Rogers took that idea to heart, and the love he had for his viewers was demonstrated in every episode.

The film itself explores the persona of "Mr. Rogers" as well as his fascinating real life, with a charming but honest tone that recalls Mr Rogers' Neighborhood.

"The Fred Rogers I discovered making this film is at once comfortably familiar and completely surprising". It will also likely make you weep at the sheer, unadulterated kindness Rogers had for the world, so just be prepared to bring some tissue with you to the theater.

The film isn't the only Rogers-related movie that will hit the big screen. The trailer, rather than just hitting on the greatness of Mr. Rogers, leans into aspects some people may not know, like how his show dealt head-on with hard topics like the Vietnam War and the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy. A clip from "Won't You Be My Neighbor" was released back in January.
