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.

Fun Magical Sequel

Watched both this and original with my daughters. This is much more watchable as a adult. Themes are positive and acting is good. Really appreciate the split racial families like mine.

Loved it!

My grandchildren and I loved it! Had my grandchildren over for a 5 night stay. Mystery City was our afternoon go to everyday when the rain started and chased us indoors. They loved it and so did I. I’m still the favorite grandma! :)
