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.

A white Black Bear.

A minimum effort and a bit miss-leading. The province of British Columbia, Canada is blessed with thousands of spectacular views and yes, all areas of the province have Black Bear and different colour phases of the same. The film suggests there is something unique about the area, that suggestion would only be true if the film recognized the uniqueness of the entire province.
