A new trailer has been released for the forthcoming documentary "Won't You Be My Neighbor?," which explores the legacy of America's most beloved children's television host Fred Rogers.

Oscar-winning documentary filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom) directs this heartfelt portrait of the famed creator and host of the long-running, award-winning educational kids series "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood."

The documentary, which premiered to rave reviews at Sundance this year, takes a nostalgic and detailed look at how an idealistic Presbyterian minister from Pittsburgh named Fred Rogers started a career as a puppeteer on a local kids show in the early 1950s, and then a decade later became America's most favorite cardigan sweater-wearing neighbor who on a daily basis inspired generations of children with messages of love and acceptance.

"Won't You Be My Neighbor?" is scheduled to be released theatrically on June 8th.

From Academy Award-winning filmmaker Morgan Neville (20 Feet from Stardom), "Won't You Be My Neighbor?" takes an intimate look at America's favorite neighbor: Mister Fred Rogers. 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.
