Posted on: January 22nd, 2018 by

Everyone’s favorite neighbor comes to movie screens in June 2018 with the documentary, Won’t You Be My Neighbor?


Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood was a children’s television standard, in the times when there were only a handful of stations and a few hours a day for children’s programming. From 1968-2001 it touched the lives of children and their children as it aired on PBS stations nationwide. For a time it was the longest running children’s television series and while it’s not aired today, it lives on on the PBS website.

The documentary Won’t You Be My Neighbor?, otherwise known as the Mr. Rogers Movie, by Focus Features will have its World Premiere at the 2018 Sundance Film Festival. It’s an intimate look at the gentle creative genius and directed by Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville. The man who introduced us to Lady Aberlin, King Friday and Daniel Tiger had a way with children, teaching compassion and acceptance to generations of children and their parents. For those of us who loved him, we can look forward to spending another 94 minutes with that friendly face when the film hits the screens this June.
