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.

I Believe that there are some scenes but think kids are going to find out. and the faster we get in their heads that it could cause some bad stuff they will stay away from it. Anyway, I happened to watch all the movies and I think there needs to be a 4th installment my reasoning teens need to see and understand that it will be okay to walk away from the one we love, some time away is not that. we need role models like them to show us how they were able to put the past in the past and be able to move on. we need to see how they repaired they relatshipment and I feel like the 4th installment would cover all that.
