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 the other films

My four-year-old was in tears at the rescue at the climax when it is inferred for a good dozen seconds that Pooh and Piglet fell to their deaths. Someone at Disney thought the Pooh stories needed stakes. They don't.

Normalizes Kidnapping!

In the story about Kanga and Roo moving into the neighborhood, all the characters are afraid of them because they are new. Rabbit concocts a plan to get them to leave by kidnapping Roo and holding him for the "ransom" of Kanga agreeing to leave the forest. They carry out the plan, and while they learn not to be afraid of the newcomers, they do succeed in the kidnapping. I found it shocking, but it was a good opportunity to talk to my kids about "tricky people" and how it's never ok for an anyone to take you away from your parents/guardians. The movie is otherwise boring and disappointing.
