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.

As we go into the second movie in the series, there's a loss of charm. Young children will enjoy the 'cute doggy' but there isn't a lot to keep preteens and up interested.
