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.

Poor jabs/jokes. Stereotypes everywhere that are embarrassing and shameful. Predictable and unoriginal, it’s a shame as the concept is there it has just been poorly executed with more animated violence than I felt comfortable sitting through with my 9 & 10 year old.

This title has:

Too much violence
age 3+

5 year old loved it and wanted to watch it again the very next day!

Fun movie! My 2.5 wanted to watch a movie with a monkey in it so we picked it at random based on that. She got bored with it (I mean, what 2 year old can sit through an entire movie?) but my 5.5 loved it and has watched it everyday since then... for 4 days in a row... Some lovely animation.
