Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that there is a blend of fact and fantasy in this movie, which might confuse the youngest viewers. Nothing harmful, except that shooting stars might be equated with super powers and magical vegetables for tiny fans.

Is It Any Good?
There's something compelling about the contrast of old-school Pooh -- he still says "oh, bother" -- and his enthusiastic new friend Darby. She is a problem solver, a motivator, a girl with a can-do attitude. She can tolerate Tigger's bigger-than-life personality, while exuding care and love for her friends. In this movie, the crew gets a super boost from an otherworldly source. When they find that they can fly, or lift giant boulders, or see for miles, they revel in their new gifts. Yet, when the super powers fade away, they accept the fact with grace and rely on "thinking" once more. This is a healthy treat for younger viewers.
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.
