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.

Woah, why all the sex disney?

So much sexual tension. A whole song 'one kiss' with a young girl dancing about suggestively. Why? Completely inappropriate for younger viewers, and not what we should be teaching our teens either.

Hollywood Pablum pt 3

My review of the original Descendants and Descendants 2 apply to this. Both my kids were in to it (mostly because their school mates suggested it), but its a pretty poor made-for-TV movie. I did appreciate the singing and dancing routines more in the latter two movies than I did in the original. The same predictable themes play over and over in the entire series. Clearly a low budget film as you can tell its all done on green screen. I don't like how they overly sexualized teens. They sexualized their lip-synced singing voices to be sultry and different than their actual voices. Your kids will likely enjoy it. You'll be bored.
