It’s a beautiful day in the neighborhood!

TriStar Pictures announced today that Tom Hanks will be playing Mr. Rogers in the upcoming biopic You Are My Friend. Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod, who got to know the star of Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood while writing a profile of him for Esquire magazine in 1998, and was known as a very cynical journalist until he met with Mister Rogers and his life was transformed due to his charm and natural love for the world.

With all of the current negativity and tension in our world, this movie will be a great asset to remind us all of the trans-formative power of kindness and love in the world, even on dark days.

Marielle Heller (Diary Of A Teenage Girl) is directing the film about Rogers, so keep your eyes out for trailers!
