The internet has been eagerly awaiting any news of A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, the biopic based on the life of one Mr. Fred Rogers. Mr. Rogers helped to shape the way many Americans learned about the world as children.


He encouraged loving one another and treating everyone with respect and, unlike many others at the time, this included loving those society discriminated against.

Tom Hanks portrays Rogers in the film, which is due to release on November 22nd of this year.

Fans haven't gotten much of a look at the film, as there is still no trailer, but the studio has released a couple of photos of Hanks in character.

In honor of what would have been Mr. Rogers' 91st birthday, another photo of Hanks has been released.

The photo shows what will be a familiar scene to anyone who grew up watching Mister Rogers' Neighborhood: Rogers changing his shoes upon entering the house at the start of the show. Rogers always changed out of his jacket and dress shoes, and into a cardigan and tennis shoes, at the start of every episode.


There were quite a few tears shed over the photo.




Some appreciated Rogers' and Hanks' contributions to the world.

Hanks being cast in the role was a popular subject as well.





Many are eagerly awaiting November 22nd!



If anyone is feeling extra nostalgic and wants to revisit one of their childhood favorites, MisterRogers.org posts 5 episodes every other Monday for viewers to stream from their website.

Or treat yourself (and your children) to the entire series.

Additionally, the extraordinary documentary Won't You Be My Neighbor (which was ROBBED of an Oscar nomination last year) is available for purchase. (Be wary; I sobbed my way through it.)

Fred Rogers spent his life encouraging children to treat each other with love and courtesy, and taught valuable life skills through his television program. There are few Americans who don't cherish their memories of their beloved neighbor.

There is a world full of mysteries to explore right at our very feet.

Do we engage with it on a level that might make us more uncomfortable? Well, if we really want to learn everything there is to know about our planet earth, we have to engage in the unsettling facts. They appear across every discipline.

Death is scary. It brings the unknown of the great beyond, whether that's heaven, some other afterlife, or total nothingness, depending on what you believe.

But there is one perk that comes with death: total control of your funeral.

After we've watched a movie, it can be difficult to imagine the film as a project that took months or years to finally culminate into the product we see at the theater or on our television.

But it was built and hacked together, piece by piece.
