Tom Hanks becomes US children’s TV legend Mister Rogers in A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood.

The show Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood is up there with Sesame Street in its homeland, so we guess to us this is much like if they made a biopic of Miss Jane from Mr Squiggle, or Jemima from Play School.

An incredible 895 episodes of the show aired from 1968 to 2001, including some 200 songs and 14 puppets created by Rogers himself.

A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood releases in Australian cinemas from January 23, 2020.
