Genre: True-Life Adventure
Cast: Oscar and family
Synopsis: This Disneynature film takes viewers into Africa’s forests to meet Oscar, who must fend for himself after rivals attack his family. A portion of opening-week proceeds will go to chimpanzee-protection programs.
Our Take: Families can use this film to discuss God’s creatures, their habitats, and how we care for them. Older children can talk about creation vs. evolution.
Artist: Willow Smith
Artist Info: Smith, the 11-year-old fashion trendsetter who has famous parents, hit it big with her singles “Whip My Hair” and “21st-Century Girl.”
Summary: Knees and Elbows,
Willow’s debut album, has been described as “a gumbo of R&B, pop, and rock.” The first single, “Fireball,” features Nicki Minaj.
Our Take: Willow says her album is all about kid empowerment. Overall, she succeeds, though with a sometimes-sassy tone.
