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.

Cute but not necessary

Sorry but it's not the classic that the first is. It's cute enough and the messages are good, but the animation is low quality. Some scariness during the third part, and there's a bit of sexy stuff in the second part. Better than the first midquel, but not by a lot. Overall 4.5/10 Get the original instead!
