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.

Captivating movie for family movie night

We almost did not watch this movie as the reviews didn't sound great, but I am glad we did. I think it's difficult to find live action movies that are appropriate and entertaining for all ages, and this is definitely a good one. If you don't like animals - particularly baby pandas - perhaps you wouldn't enjoy it as the baby panda is the star. The scenery is beautiful and it gave a realistic view of life in rural China and the plight of endangered animals. I don't agree with the "sappy" description. It has a happy ending - but don't we expect that from a movie designed for kids? I also liked that the two child actors looked more like real kids instead of Hollywood perfection.
