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.

It’s super creepy

I would never let my daughter watch this. There’s lots of dark magic, lots of evil motifs. Plus, it doesn’t teach very good lessons for children! The twins go off on their own and end up bringing two grown men strangers along with them. My daughter just turned 9 and she’d still be seriously creeped out by this. It depends on your child, but I wouldn’t attempt until at least 7 years old. Little kids may seem fine when they watch something, but they’re not always able to communicate things that bother them and they don’t always know either. It’s not worth giving them nightmares.
