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 good first film for Don Bluth

Though amazing tame for a Bluth production. The visuals might be a bit too extreme for a really little kid, but the film is very sweet and Banjo himself is adorable.
