Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

Charming heroes, funny sidekicks, and a loving family navigating difficult transitions are all part of this warmhearted story for kids who can distinguishing cartoon violence from real jeopardy. Divorce, remarriage, and blending new families move the story forward; these concepts are presented in a simple, clear-eyed manner, with empathy for all involved. Still, the scary wolf, the often funny but dangerous army of eagles, and the heroes' numerous near-disastrous adventures may be frightening to younger kids.

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.
