This movie has at least 4 female characters. Yi, her mother, her grandmother and Dr.Zara. There are interactions between Yi and the other three women, and no talks of men that I can remember throughout the film.

Yi lives with her mother and grandmother. Her grandmother and mother both talk to her about the fact that she is overworking herself. There are multiple exchanges between these women that are not about men. It passes.

The main character is a woman. She interacts with her mother, grandmother, and Dr. Zara (who is a woman), without speaking of a man. The relationships she has with the boys in the story are brotherly. The story ostensibly about returning the Yeti to his family, but in reality it is about Yi coming to terms with grief after the death of her father. I would say this passes the Bechdel test.

Mikayla, doesn't that mean it should pass all the tests?

As you said, they interact together. Sometimes about the father, but mostly not about men. I think it passes the 3 test (if no name required)

Watching this movie now. Unless the entire scene requires 0 mention of a man, the conversation Yi’s mom and grandma have about Yi 8 minutes in should count. The mention of her dad is not really the same as talking about her dad.

Just adding another comment to support those above; there are conversations that allow this film to pass, so I think Mikayla may have made a simple mistake in entering it. Easily done, but this needs updating.

As everyone above said, this passes with flying colors, rating should be corrected
