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.

Very inspiring and funny movie

The movie is fun and inspirational. I would say it’s a good family movie but because of fight scenes maybe a little older for the kids to watch.
