The movie, called A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood, is about Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood host Fred Rogers’ relationship with journalist Tom Junod, whose outlook on life changed while he was writing a magazine profile of Rogers.

The trailer features Hanks, donning the iconic red sweater, singing, “Won’t You Be My Neighbor?” as a spot-on Rogers.

Daniel Tiger even makes an appearance.

Pretty much everyone is a weepy bucket of emotions over the sweet trailer.

And amazed at how much Hanks as Rogers just makes sense.

Tragedy struck the set of the film in October, when 61-year-old crew member James M. Emswiller died after he fell from a balcony during a smoke break.

The upcoming movie comes less than two years after the release of Won’t You Be My Neighbor? — a tearjerking documentary about the man behind the show.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood hits theaters this Thanksgiving.
