Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Animals United is a standard wild animal adventure with some gun violence -- a lion remembers when his brother was shot and killed by a hunter -- and some animal-on-animal skirmishes (the buffalo and rhinos go head to head). Language includes some insults like "dumb," "idiot," and the word "hell," and if you stay through the credits, there's a short glimpse of a koala drinking a beer in a bar. But the movie's messages are positive and encourage viewers to be more environmentally aware and attempt to help endangered animals and protect natural resources.
- Sexual Content
- Winnie and Winston have been together for ages and talk about how much they love each other.
- The buffalo and the rhinos butt heads (literally). Socrates the lion recalls when his brother was shot and killed by a hunter. An elderly tortoise dies peacefully ("She has taken her last breath," her partner says). A hunter maniacally tries to kill a bunch of animals. A group of animals descends upon a resort, wreaking havoc and scaring the guests.
- Some insults, including "idiot," "dumb," "thief," "hell," etc.
- Social Behavior
- There's a strong environmental message in Animals United. The animals explain how humans have made a lot of decisions that have hurt animals, the climate, and the environment in general. The movie's main message is that we all share the same Earth.
