Go back in time to the friendliest, most welcoming place from everybody’s childhood ~ Mister Rogers’ Living Room.
If you are like me you love watching Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with your children because it reminds you of the show you grew up on, Mister Roger’s Neighborhood. It officially premiered in 1968, and children have been going on magical journeys with sweater-wearing Fred Rogers every since.
Won’t You Be My Neighbor? chronicles the career of Fred Rogers and his show that has touched so many lives. The timing of the film couldn’t be more perfect as the series celebrates it’s 50th anniversary this year. The movie features behind-the-scenes footage, never-before-seen clips, and cast and crew interviews.
Focus Features will release WON’T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR? in select theaters on June 8th, 2018
Story: From Academy Award®-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), Won’t You Be My Neighbor? takes an intimate look at America’s favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
Director: Morgan Neville (“20 Feet from Stardom”)
