Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that while this cartoon is very entertaining, its complex, political story themes may be difficult for younger viewers to follow. Violence -- mostly in the form of flying battles between bats and birds -- isn't very graphic, although some characters do die. Positive themes include integrity, loyalty, leadership, and teamwork.
Is It Any Good?
Silverwing is an excellent choice for action and animation fans. Combing both 3D and more traditional 2D animation, the show has a unique look that will be sure to keep viewers tuned in. The main storyline is also excellent -- it asks viewers to consider complex dilemmas without easy answers, which may even have them questioning their own values.
That said, the conflict in Silverwing is highly political and may be too complicated for younger viewers to follow. But older kids (young tweens and up) will enjoy this tale of adventure, regret, and redemption.
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.
