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.

A sequel that lives up to its predecessor.

Kids are 5 and 7, adults 38 and 40. We all cried at some point in the movie. The music, animation, and story raised the bar for old time Disney movies. Spoilers!! My son understood trying to win over the fathers respect, and the sadness from losing someone. During our standard intermission for kids movies, we had to explain hunting to the kids, baiting, the use of dogs and guns. Thanks to video games they understood hunting animals(not sure if that is good or not). My kids literally were on the edge of their seats at times, and I was proud my son said he is being mean, nobody is going to like him if he does that," speaking of Bambi's kid rival. My daughter was enthralled jumping back twice. Great movie, surprised I had not heard about it until I got Disney Plus.
