I grew up on Mr. Rogers and I have some very fond memories of watching him in my younger years. Do you remember the crayon factory? I swear, that episode made a difference in my life!
Mr. Rogers was important to me, and I found that my own kids loved the Mr. Rogers Neighborhood DVDs I found for them at the library and for free on Amazon Prime Video. I loved that the concept and general plot held up over all the years between my childhood and my own kids!
If you also have special memories of Mr. Rogers and Mr. Rogers Neighborhood, take a look at the official trailer for Won't You Be My Neighbor?, which is releasing in select theaters on June 8, 2018.

A portrait of a man whom we all think we know, this emotional and moving film takes us beyond the zip-up cardigans and the land of make-believe, and into the heart of a creative genius who inspired generations of children with compassion and limitless imagination.
