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.

Scary, negative, violent

100% disappointment from the original Cars movie that we all fell in love with! These tiny episodes are full of violence & fear, lots of scary images, death mentioned several times. It was so uncomfortable and odd to watch, mater acted like more of a fool than before (no not funnier), and lightning was just strange & awkward. These were NOTHING like the Radiator Springs, feel-good moments our children felt at home with. Not for children. Our future society (our children) do not need violence & terror in their tv shows! Will avoid watching anything these writers do in the future.

This title has:

Too much violence
