Great movie

Our daughter is 5 and sensitive to things that are “scary”. I think they did a good job of adding humor to the more intense parts, which helped her enjoy the movie without fear. I always recommend watching trailers of more intense parts first before attempting the whole thing. This has helped us determine whether our child can handle a particular movie.
