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.

A little boring, but in the end what Star Wars fans are hoping for.

UH OH! Anakin kills everyone (men, women, children) who were in the town that killed his mother, and starts to go to the dark side a teeny bit. There is a huge battle at the end with no blood but lots of death. The romance is boring.

This title has:

Too much violence
Too much sex
