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.

Literally the worst cartoon Disney movie I’ve seen. The plot was horrible, the father/son relationship content not for little kids. The boys character lacking as a whole, an unnecessary focus on his crush ( regardless of gender). Give me Brave, Encanto, not this garbage. My kids were bored. Disney is supposed to be fun. Whimsical. I’m over Disney.

Boring!

We liked that we had the option of 3D. We did not like the effects though. 3d was as my grandson said “boring.” He said Legos 3D was much better. Anyhow, granddaughter went on to say the plot was “unimaginative.” Overall, we could only give it two stars because it just didn’t make us want to stay. You know it’s bad when you’re grandkids are bored and ready to leave. Ugh.
