Trailer Arrives For Mr. Rogers Documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor?

Watch The First Trailer For WON'T YOU BE MY NEIGHBOR

One story goes that Mister Rogers had a blind viewer write in to make sure Rogers announced that he was feeding the fish-a ritual at the end of each day's episode-because he was concerned about their welfare.

Focus Features has released the first official trailer for the Mr. Rogers' documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor that explores the life and contribution of esteemed entertainer Fred Rogers to television.

In Won't You Be My Neighbor?

The trailer's release on Tuesday falls on what would have been Rogers' 90th birthday.

"Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" distinguished itself from other children's programming by addressing subjects that were previously considered off-limits for the genre, including divorce, race relations, and death. Rogers died from stomach cancer in 2003, but the impact he made on television is still being felt and is celebrated in Won't You Be My Neighbor? "Low production values, simple set, an unlikely star", she mused, "yet it worked!". "He was radical", fellow cast member Elizabeth Seamans, who played Mrs. McFeely on the show, marvels in the trailer.

The injured include Nasreen Kouser, daughters of Mohammed Ramzan - 11-year-old Nasreen Kouser and 5-year-old Mahreen Kouser. Army PRO Lieutenant Colonel Devender Anand said the ceasefire violation by Pakistan in Bimber Gali started around 7.45 am.

Mister Rogers is back in the neighborhood and already has us reaching for the tissues.

"Children have very deep feelings, just the way everybody does", Rogers explains in the trailer.

It certainly seems that with today's current political climate and social media obsessed world, viewers are eager for a few more handsome days in the neighborhood. His special lesson? "Love is at the root of everything-all learning, all relationships", Rogers is shown saying. "I believe Mister Rogers is the kind of voice we need to hear right now", Neville said in a statement to The Hollywood Reporter in November.

Won't You Be My Neighbor debuts in select theaters June 8.
