Timed for release with Earth Day, this mini-documentary offers a feel-good follow-up to the 2019 feature-length documentary. The Biggest Little Farm: The Return feels like a celebration of the natural harmony and splendor achieved on the farm as well as of the family of director Chester, his wife, and their kids, all captured in golden light. Events from past years, like wildfires and storms, are spliced together and give only a taste of what life on the farm is like. The tight 29-minute running time just doesn't give a lot of room to develop the story, and a lot of time is spent on Emma the pig, a return character from the original film. Viewers who have seen the first film might appreciate this one more, but the sequel could also inspire audiences to seek out the original.

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.
