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.

Dull film but might attract some viewers.

The movie is disappointing so I recommend don't bother watching. Of course some families would want to show their kids the importance of elephants or any other animals to being free, but this film shows this in a very cheesy, complicated way. The reason I gave this film an iffy choice for children under 14 is that because children might get bored (i'm not saying that a 14 year old won't)
