What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Hero of Color City is similar to Toy Story, but instead of toys coming to life, it's crayons. The movie has lots of positive messages about overcoming your fears, believing in yourself, helping others, and working as a team. There are a few scenes in which the crayons are in peril -- a dinosaur wastebasket comes to life, a character is dropped off a tall building (and caught!), the crayons take a boat down the "scary narrows" and encounter a spooky fog and threatening voice -- but nothing overly scary. Younger kids will like the colors and the mild adventure, but the story might not be exciting for older kids or their parents.
