Sometimes the daily onslaught of terrible news can really get you down. That's why this image of Tom Hanks as Mr. Rogers is a ray of hope in this drab, drab world.
The image brought some much-needed joy to Twitter users on Thursday when Sony Pictures posted the very first photo of Hanks in his upcoming role as the host of Mister Rogers' Neighbourhood in the yet untitled film.
According to a report by Buzzfeed, the movie will centre around Fred Rogers and the life lessons he gave to magazine journalist Tom Junod.
Tom Hanks is seen wearing the iconic bright red jumper over a tie, mimicking Rogers' outfit ,all the while exuding pure joy.
People on Twitter were overjoyed at this image and we're grateful for such light-hearted news for once.
Thank you! We so need this in our lives right now! Wish it was coming out this week. https://t.co/tBDYrH61Qp
