Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that some scary animal images, along with the purposefully frightening wicked enchantress and her followers and the "semi-disappearance" of three young children, make this an iffy choice for very young or sensitive viewers. Snarling wolves with teeth bared and fiery speed threaten and chase the human characters on more than one occasion. A polar bear (who is easily recognized as a man in a bear suit) often rears up and roars but is never really dangerous. There are no attacks or injuries, and the soldiers sent to do battle turn and run rather than engage the beasts. The enchantress works in a lab bubbling with steam and poisons. She works her magic with blasts of smoke and flashes of lightning, conjuring up truly bizarre, devil-like beings.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.


Though the audience understands that the polar bear is good and harmless, the huge animal (played by a man in a bear suit) roars, stands poised to attack, and thunders over the land. There are several scenes in which wolves howl and race across the landscape, seeming to chase innocents. The evil witch is classically scary -- arching eyebrows, cackling voice, dark, bubbling laboratory equipment. The witch's boss -- a devilish, shrieking character -- appears and disappears in clouds of smoke.

Social Behavior
