You might have been seeing more viral videos of Mister Rogers being shared recently, and that’s probably because a documentary following the life of Fred Rogers is set to be released in June.
The first trailer for the doc was released this week, and it focuses on the unlikely success and lasting impact of Fred’s TV show, Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood.
“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 difficult topics like the Vietnam War and the assassination of Robert F. Kennedy.”
Focus Features will be distributing this movie. It was directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville. The film premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and everyone loved it. I mean, how could you not like a documentary about one of the nicest dudes to ever walk the earth?
