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.

Christmas + Sci-fi!!!!

Traditional Christmas/Santa story plus the best references to Sci-fi plus Sweet moral point. This was GREAT! Watched it with my teen son and daughters, will be sharing with my 6 and 10 year olds tomorrow! We love sci-fi but it’s so hard to find some thing that’s appropriate for younger children. This was awesome!

Kids enjoyed it

2 and 5 year old both enjoyed it. Neither found any of it scary. Different from the usual Christmas movies.
