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 dont really know

I saw this movie when I was 6, 7 or 8 with my grandma. I found it weird, and didn’t understand some things, while others I found sad. I would watch it without your kids, probably after they go to sleep. But, it’s not like they can’t watch it. I would watch it before your kids and decide how you feel about it. It really depends on the kid. I didn’t put too much swearing because I don’t remember any swearing, but I don’t know if I knew which words were bead then.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much consumerism
Too much drinking/drugs/smoking
