Did we miss something on diversity?

Awful female characters

I got about 20 minutes into this one with my 3.5 year old before turning it off. In the group of kids and animals, there is just one girl, and she is dressed as a pink princess and says lots of OMGs. Her dog's interaction is with two girl ponies, and their conversation is nothing but empty phrases about "girl power!" while the boys are adventuring. Bad message for my son about the role of women and girls.

Fine movie for young kids

I'm not a fan as the parent, pretty cheese IMO. But nothing bad for him really. He really enjoys the talking dogs with super powers, even pretends they are his imaginary dogs when he isnt watching the movie. There is a scary green alien, but he does fine with it. He does like scary things tho.

Great role models
