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.

age 8+
Do watch it with the kids to begin with our 5yo found the father dying quite hard to take but took to the rest of the movie well, our 8yo didn't like the dog fight and was upset about it - asked questions about why someone would put their own anima,l that they loved, in danger to hurt another ... a very 'american dream' type film though!!

This title has:

Too much violence
