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.

Read a CS Lewis book

Apparently nobody here has ever read one before his books but children and adults were full of battles and fighting scenes because he knew that Christian's would have to constantly "pick up their sword and shield" and fight. Most of the allegory comes from the books of Judges Exodus Numbers John and Revelation he. Knew that we needed to teach our children to be able to defend themselves for evil from a early age.

More intense than its predecessor

This movie is a bit more violent and action packed than the previous installment. But it also has positive role models and messages as well.
