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.

Bad bad bad.

To be honest I think only 12 year olds and over will understand the plot of this story. Basically, just a one giant cash grab. Dorothy is now in high school. There you go. That’s the plot basically. All your favourite lovable characters are now turned into weird creepy annoying full grown men dressed in costumes telling strangers they are ‘munchkins.’ Please don’t watch this cash grab.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
Too much swearing
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
