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.

If you have a sensitive child, avoid at all costs. Scenes of predator and prey are accompanied by unneccessary loud soundeffects to hammer home the fate of the prey. Yes,children need to know about the food chain but my 7 year old was distraught at seeing some beautiful fish in 3d, devoured in front of her eyes like some sick joke. This is classified as a u?!!!!!!! Total disgrace

Disappointing and short attention span paced

We don't watch many movies and I picked a few shorter nature flicks for my kiddos (5,8) while they were sick. There was nothing objectionable here. There as a reference to "lovers" so that might incite questions you may or may not want to answer. The face was kind of ADD and there was no thread running through out, just jumping from tidbit to tidbit which was unsatisfying given the pace. If it were an old school style slow nature movie that wouldn't have mattered. And the default animal sex was always "he" no surprise there. Environmental message. Ultimately felt like not very satisfying eye candy.
