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.

Don't show to vegetarians or sensitive children

We had to turn it off before the great parts in the second half because the violence, the threats of death to sympathetic characters, Christmas dinner as a time of mourning for the goose who was slaughtered, all things that I hadn't remembered from seeing this long ago as an adult. My 11 year old vegetarian daughter was sobbing and miserable, and didn't last long enough for all the fun shepherding scenes.

Too much violence
