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.

Not as Good as Original, But Still Good

Most of the family enjoyed this. It holds up well. Wasn't as enjoyable as the first. Story was somewhat lacking. Or maybe, having just watched the original, the novelty wore off. I suggest watching the original first. My almost 8 year old boy got a bit bored and wandered off. He was glued to the first one. My 6 year old daughter stayed still the whole way through.
