The trailer for A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood has arrived! And yes, it'll likely make you cry buckets.

The first look at the drama starring Tom Hanks as the iconic children's show star gives us a peek into the real-life friendship that bloomed between Fred Rogers and journalist Tom Junod (The Americans star Matthew Rhys). The true story recounts how the jaded magazine writer sent to do a story on Rogers and his beloved TV series in Pittsburgh began to form a bond with Fred, hearing his lessons on overcoming cynicism in favor of kindness and empathy, ultimately transforming both of their lives.

Watch the incredibly sweet trailer for the film — which also stars Susan Kelechi Watson
and Chris Cooper, and was directed by Marielle Heller — above before it arrives in theaters this Thanksgiving.
