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.

Very intense

I picked this movie based on reviews and it was much more intense and upsetting than I expected. There is quite a bit of violence and death (including a baby gorilla and Tarzan’s parents). My 7-year-old was in tears for the first 30 minutes and then refused to watch the rest.
