Is It Any Good?

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

This is a slight, harmless knock-off of numerous, better, animated films aimed at young kids. Ploey is designed to underscore the virtues of determination, loyalty, resourcefulness, and grit. Younger kids may be frightened when the evil falcon Shadow menaces the defenseless birds. It's not the worst animated animal tale for kids, but there are many better options.

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.
