Mr. Rogers is a cultural icon for most Americans. From the recent documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor? to the endless speculation about his private life, Rogers has gone from man to legend over the last few decades, for good reason. His good-natured sing-song voice and ability to speak to kids on their level made him feel less like a stranger on television and more like a family member who understood you.
Most of us kids who grew up between the '60s and the '80s have an incredibly special place in their hearts for him and his magical world, so it's no surprise that when the trailer for the new movie about his life A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood dropped, people absolutely flipped out. In the best way possible.
And the icing on the cake? Mister Rogers is being played by Tom Hanks.
