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.

a glorious retelling

This modern day version may be hard for young children to follow. Even so, it is amusing, as viewers contemplate what Jesus would've gone through had the crucifixion and resurrection happened today. Tyler Perry makes this version all the more fun. He is a terrific host and narrator.
