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.

Good, but the beginning is dark

The first 1/4 of the movie was depressing for my 8 year old, and hard to get over because it is followed by the main character getting very sad and scared of life. After that, it gets very positive and fun, with lots of imagination and magic. Great opportunity for social-emotional learning.

My 8 year old boy enjoyed it - so did I

The rare 'kiddie' movie that both my son and I enjoyed. I particularly enjoyed every moment of John Oliver's performance. It was a nice story full of colour, adventure and action - the latter being almost essential for my 8 year old boy to stay interested. There was nothing profound here. A few things that didn't make sense. But, who cares. It's got a nice message. Dream big, persevere, using your imagination is a wonderful thing, 'you can do anything' kind of messages. And a bit of 'girls can rock science too' kinda vibe. My 6 year old daughter chose to spend the evening playing with hatchemals in another room. But her brother thinks she'll like it too. So do I.
