Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that Legend is a dark fantasy full of menacing and sometimes violent imagery that may terrify younger children. Actors in scary makeup and costumes play goblins representing a devil-like Lord of Darkness, who seeks to eradicate good and bring back a permanent winter of evil throughout the world. A unicorn -- the symbol of goodness -- is violently killed. Humans and sprites are attacked; one is hit in the head with an arrow. Some are carted off to be eaten. Brain-eating is mentioned, and one villain wants to drink a unicorn's blood. Expect some wine drinking. The words "s--t," "dammit," and "hell" are used. The Lord of Darkness talks of his desire for Princess Lily.
