The New Trailer for That Mister Rogers Documentary Is NSFW

Because who wants to openly weep in front of their coworkers?

A brand new trailer for Morgan Neville’s documentary about Fred Rogers, aka Mister Rogers—appropriately titled Won’t You Be My Neighbor?—is making the rounds today. And unless you are a robot, this puppy is going to hit you right in the feels.

Neville was behind 2013’s 20 Feet From Stardom, the spectacular Oscar- and Grammy-winning documentary about the massive successes and complicated struggles of background singers (seriously, watch this bonkers clip of Merry Clayton totally crushing a section of the Rolling Stones’ “Gimme Shelter”). His pedigree and prowess in the medium only bode well for Neighbor: Even from this short clip, it’s clear the filmmaker utilized interviews and archival footage to create a nuanced and moving tribute to a man who was once bound for seminary but who instead used a much more public platform to spread love, acceptance, and positivity.

Check out the trailer below, and look out for the film in theaters on June 8.
