If they like animals have them watch Born Free. When I made my daughters watch when they were kids (they wanted to rent some cartoon movie for the umpteenth time) after the movie they both said "Dad how did you know we would love that movie". Because I am Dad and know all.

Have them watch "October Sky" then next Wednesday have them watch the Space X launch our American crew from American soil into space.
Tell them about the NASA Artemis Program (Google it). NASA plans to have the first Female on the moon in 2024.

Or have them watch spongebob. Your call.

If they like Jumanji, get Zathura. It's the same movie set in space.

The new Mulan is really good. Secondhand Lions is brilliant. The original Italian Job. Goonies. The Fox and the Hound. The new Jungle Book is really brilliantly made, the original is classic. The original Ghostbusters.

Mrs. Doubtfire is a good one, I second that recommendation.

The Sandlot.

Not the most appropriate, but Grease was always a favorite for me and my cousins at that age.

Surprised no one suggested Stand By Me. Gotta be one of the best coming of age movies.

And while not a movie, Boy Meets World is probably one of the best coming of age sitcoms of its time. Forget the new Girl Meets World, as it’s loaded with all that hyperactive squeaky sarcastic stuff. But Boy Meets World was top notch. Available on Disney+.

And of course The Wonder Years.
