Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this nature program focuses on animal predators and, as a consequence, features some violent, aggressive animal behavior that may upset particularly young or sensitive children. But for those used to the facts of life in the wild, it's packed with insightful information about animals and their activities.
Is It Any Good?
While Totally Wild is packed with interesting educational content on various species, it tends to focus on the harsh realities of life in the wild. In other words, this is no sweet, Disney-fied interpretation of animal behavior, and it might upset particularly young or sensitive children.
Overall, Totally Wild is entertaining despite the sometimes-graphic footage. If bloody hunting scenes and vivid shots of animal flesh don't bother your kids, they may find great pleasure in this well-made, educational nature program. After all, the laws of Disney don't apply to the animal kingdom.
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.
