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.

8 yr old son really enjoyed this movie

our son totally related to the characters, enjoyed the dimension induced by the user-created type cinematography but mostly he connected with the story itself, a mystery-adventure based rescue mission.
age 7+
We really enjoyed this one. The kids, aged 12 and 8 (almost 13 and 9) really related to the adventure and camaraderie of the protagonists. The film has just the right amount of awkward adolescence to be fun for parents as well.
