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.

Main Character in Sorcery Training School

The first half of the movie was pretty good. But once Elina enters an apprentice training school to become a "guardian" she has to learn how to use her powers. I would have been fine with "special abilities/powers" but at one point Azura says ... You can't use your "spells" against each other. Then, she uses a spell to break the misuse of powers. From a Christian point of view, sorcery is a big no no. Gal 5:19-21, Deut 18:10-12. Perhaps some parents may feel their children are old enough to know it's pure fantasy. Personally, I do not think this is something I want my child exposed to. Seeing someone like Elina who displays integrity, bravery, kindness, and selflessness ... One who appears to be a "good role model" yet does one of the things the Lord warns against ... Just does not seem to be a good plan.
