INDIANAPOLIS (WTHR) — Tom Hanks' next starring role sees him step into the shoes of a beloved television icon.

Sony released the first trailer for the Fred Rogers biopic, titled "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood," Monday morning.

The film will focus on the friendship between the host of "Mister Rogers' Neighborhood" and journalist Lloyd Vogel (based on award-winning journalist Tom Junod), who reluctantly agreed to profile Rogers only to find "his perspective on life transformed."

The Academy Award-winning actor ("Philadelphia," "Forrest Gump") reprised his role as Woody in this summer's "Toy Story 4" but was last seen on the big screen in "The Post" in 2017.

"A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" will be released on November 22.
