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.

Will be watching this again. :)

A lovely movie. We have enjoyed watching it together as a family. No sexual innuendo and other inappropriate content too often present in animated movies. Thank you Triggerfish! And a fantastic score by a remarkably talented local South African.

Living in Africa - we looooved this movie

My kids are 8, 6 and 4 and they all totally loved this movie. I didn't even realise it was old till I googled it but it is absolutely accurate with the types of birds and animals in Africa which appealed to my wildlife crazed 6 year old son...seeing as peregrine falcons are a win at this age ...having a movie that (although it has a scary lizard and some mean birds) was fun, pretty harmless and entertaining and I would say was one of the lessor scary ones (Disney much scarier cartoons) was refreshing. I enjoyed it too and I think it's a lovely movie for the whole family...especially so if it's a familiar setting ;P
