Did we miss something on diversity?

Great family movie

I was pleasantly surprised by this movie - don't be put off by the scary looking creatures and dark animation. Its a lovely movie with a beautiful message and a fabulous soundtrack. My kids are 3 and 5 - although the animation is a bit dark - this is not a scary movie. Suitable for all ages.
