Fun, lightweight, and stuffed with Disney characters, this prequel/promo for the final Descendants movie finds the villain kids about to graduate and take on new challenges. The plot, characters, and action in Escape from the Isle of the Lost are all cartoonish, of course, but along the way there's a lot of celebration of friendship, teamwork, loyalty, doing your best, and reaching out to others who could use your help.

"Being a student here at Auradon Prep, I I learned that good is better than evil. I learned to make friends. I learned to love. I learned I don't have to be a certain kind of person because I was born in a certain part of the world. I can be anyone I want to be. I can be strong, and I can be weird, and I can be myself. That's what I learned in Auradon -- that I can change for the better. We all can. Change is good. Because we are all in this together, and only together can we change the world and make it a better place."

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.
