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.

Imaginative, Creative, Appropriate, Entertaining, Great, Fun, Enjoyable.........

This is a movie that engages your brain to entertain. Yes, there is a message of love, finding yourself, acceptance......yadda yadda yadda but this movie is ENTERTAINING! THIS movie is gorgeous. This movie has a defined plot and story that do not go on and on and on and on into eternity. The characters are pretty well defined and developed (it's a kid's movie to be fair). It shows that if they want, they can create a movie like the old days without politics, without innuendo of current issues. It's a story about a girl who helps a Yeti and figures out some things about herself and her friends who go with her. It is so nice and so good.
