My Opinion: with 89 minutes this is great for kids as it pushes aside the norm of gender and race along with focusing on separate cultures who put aside their differences to work together. Elena is reminded by her family that there’s always something more to learn no matter what you have learned and accomplished so far. I like how she takes young Nico and please for him to get a second chance at passing his test to become a guardian.
