Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

A bit violent and very un-historic, with pleasant songs

Quite a bit violent for a young children's film. This is definitely not a film that is historically accurate. In fact, quite the opposite, the liberties taken are wide and loose. It is definitely a fantastical story and the songs are catchy and the mascots are cute. The romance is predictable but not distracting. It's pleasant but violent, I would say appropriate for kids maybe 7 and up.
age 12+

Good but with strong horror scenes

Very beautiful music, scenes, story. But the Rasputin scenes are plain horror for a kid, even if just cartoon. So I think it's not for children of any age.
