Whether it’s the lovable Baymax in BIG HERO 6 or the villain-tuned vigilante in MEGAMIND, these films feature characters who snap into action when there’s trouble.

THE INCREDIBLES

****
Content:
+2 Moderately questionable elements.
THE INCREDIBLES is another incredible animated movie from Pixar and Disney, about two retired superhero parents who must battle a villain targeting their family.

In SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE, Miles Morales runs into a society of Spider-Men or Spider-People protecting the multiverse from threats, but when they clash on how to handle a new supervillain, Miles faces a moral dilemma that affects the people he loves the most. SPIDER-MAN: ACROSS THE SPIDER-VERSE is a creative, exciting, funny superhero movie with a strong, heartfelt pro-family worldview that also promotes doing the right thing, but there’s lots of animated action violence and some brief foul language, so caution is advised for older children.

MEGAMIND

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
MEGAMIND features the title character super villain battling his archenemy super hero Metro Man, only to find that he himself might make a good hero. A very entertaining movie with a redemptive heart, MEGAMIND has slapstick violence and some edgy elements requiring caution for young children.

Quality:
****
Content:
+1 Moderately questionable elements. (Discernment required for young children.)
THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE has Batman fighting The Joker, while learning his need to be part of a family, soften his persona and be a father to a son he accidentally adopts. THE LEGO BATMAN MOVIE is laugh out loud funny and exciting, with some strong positive messages about family, but a caution is advised for younger children due to a politically correct reference, some light innuendo and animated action violence.

BIG HERO 6

BIG HERO 6 is an excellent Disney animated movie about a 14-year-old boy who turns a huggable healthcare robot into a fighting machine and enlists the help of four friends to catch a villain in the city of San Fransokyo. BIG HERO 6 is delightful and charming with positive messages of helping others, courage and selflessness. A light caution is advised for younger children because of some heavier elements, including lots of action.

INCREDIBLES 2

In INCREDIBLES 2, the sequel to Pixar and Disney’s classic animated movie, Mr. Incredible, Elastigirl, and their children spring into action once again when a supervillain hypnotizes innocent civilians to harm others. INCREDIBLES 2 is another fun, exciting, family-friendly superhero movie with lots of humor and heart, but it contains a couple light expletives and some scary elements requiring caution for younger children.

PAW PATROL: THE MIGHTY MOVIE

PAW PATROL: THE MIGHTY MOVIE follows the adventures of the PAW Patrol pups in this sequel to PAW PATROL: THE MOVIE, where each of the pups receives a unique superpower when a mysterious meteor crash lands in Adventure City.

MONSTERS VS. ALIENS is an action-packed animated spoof of 1950s science fiction movies, about a group of monsters sent by the government to defeat a tyrannical alien out to destroy and enslave the people of Earth.

BOLT

The Disney animated feature BOLT is about a canine actor in a superhero show on TV who gets accidentally shipped to New York and must make his way back to Hollywood, with help from a sarcastic cat named Mittens and wacky hamster named Rhino. BOLT is great wholesome fun from beginning to end.
