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.

Not for little girls

This was way to scary for my 6 year old little girl. She was watching it at a movie night event, and left in tears. She was terrified by one of the scary characters. Had trouble sleeping. My nine year old son watched it to the end and was not bothered at all.
