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.

It's okay if your kids enjoy magic

If your children like watching magic related movies then it will be ok. It's quite a boring and slow watch for adults. My children found it funny at several points within the film. They particularly found the talking animals funny. Although it says no sex present there was a kiss between the parents of the lead child.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much sex

So anti climax !!!!!!!

WHAT TYPE OF WITCH IS SHE???? i was waiting the WHOOOLE movie ! Some animals can talk and some are used as a telephone and I think that's basically animal abuse ??? using animals like that is NOT cool.
