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.

Worth watching!

It's fun to watch the young women grow up on screen and be more centered in their beliefs. Also loved how the young men on the team support them and are some of the more outspoken when raising sexism. Refreshing. Love the direction and editing - highly recommend!
