Common Sense Note
Parents need to know that there is much PG-worthy violence in this Disney outing, including fatal shootings and stabbings, and some of the pirates, when threatening the life of young Jim Hawkins, might seem truly nightmarish to very little viewers. Jim himself has to kill one. Later theatrical and TV re-releases of Treasure Island excised the worst of it to get a "G," but the video version restores it. You'll see much drinking as well, but it's not glorified.
Shootings, one in painful closeup right into a pirate's face. Stabbings, including the boy hero getting a knife thrown into his arm.
OK, even though a parrot is cautioned about the bad language he allegedly repeats.
Young Jim Hawkins is a paragon of justice and virtue. Most of the pirates are greedy, treacherous rascals. Long John Silver stands in both camps (depending on whose side is winning), and while he's an untrustworthy scalawag and a killer, his almost-fatherly affection for Jim makes him a fascinating antihero. Female characters are totally invisible -- Jim's mother, briefly present in the book, isn't even here.
Drugs / Tobacco /
Drinking among the seamen, one so drunk he washes overboard (his inebriation encouraged by Long John Silver as a deliberate act of murder). Ex-pirate Billy Bones quite likely dies of alcoholism. At least it's not glorified.
