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.

Some intense parts

While the adults enjoyed the movie, our 3.5 year old did not. While she loves the books, there were scenes that were scary for her. Parts in the jungle we dark, and when the man in the yellow hat shoots his guide with a dart gun she was quite disturbed. Later, the superintendent Ivan is angrily searching for George it was just too intense and she started to cry. We turned it off at this point (about 30 minutes in) so I cannot give a full review. I think my sensitive child will need to wait a few years before trying this one again.
