If this doesn't make your day, nothing will!

Sony Pictures Entertainment released the first trailer on Monday for 'A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood,' a feature film starring Tom Hanks as beloved television personality, Mister Rogers.

The movie tells the story of a jaded and cynical journalist, played by Matthew Rhys, who's assigned to write a profile piece for Esquire magazine about television icon Fred Rogers. Along the way, Rogers shows the reporter how kindness and empathy can leave a lasting impression on the lives of strangers.

The film is based on the real-life friendship between Rogers and journalist Tom Junod.

Rogers' hit show for children, 'Mister Rogers' Neighborhood,' ran from the late 60s until 2001. Rogers' sweet and jovial demeanor inspired countless generations and became a cultural phenomenon.

'A Beautiful Day In The Neighborhood' is scheduled to hit theaters on Nov. 22.
