Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that the 1939 fantasy contains several scenes that may be scary for very young children, almost all of which involve the green-skinned Wicked Witch of the West and her band of creepy flying monkeys. Most parents who've seen the movie before know that the plot includes a disastrous tornado, and an enchanted forest full of red-eyed creatures and talking trees. By today's rating standards, this Hollywood classic is downright tame, but between the twister, the mild peril, and the general menacing, murderous intentions of the witch, some pre-schoolers could be frightened.

Sexual Content

Not applicable.

Violence

The Wicked Witch of the West is quite creepy and menacing, as are her scary henchmonkeys and her abrupt arrivals/departures. Some kids may also be frightened during the twister scene and/or upset by Dorothy's separation from home and family. The trees that attack the friends are mean and vicious.

Language

Nothing objectionable, although Dorothy does call Ms. Gulch "a wicked witch."

Social Behavior

Strong themes of working together to face challenges and fears and standing up for your friends. The central characters' friendship allows them to act selflessly and courageously.

Consumerism
