Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (3 ):

These Pixar character-themed short films are a mixed bag of popcorn: Some are delightful morsels and others didn't quite pop to perfection. Kids will love seeing their favorite characters in silly scenarios. The incredible storytelling in Pixar's long-form movies and movie-preceding shorts is not present in most of these. Instead, they're very fun sketches with lots of laughs but not much substance. The "Cookie Num Num" Incredibles short is excellent, and there are great gags in most of the shorts. Adults especially will enjoy the hilarious wordplay of comedians Keegan-Michael Key and Jordan Peele in the two "Ducky and Bunny" shorts (though their insult-adjacent language doesn't set the best example for kids).

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.
