A more serious children’s movie with some mature, soothing background music.
I don’t have a problem with the movie dealing with betrayal, loss of parents, etc. Those things are part of life, and kids may have to deal with those things before the age of 8. Death happens, ya know. Besides, what about Lion King?! That movie had betrayal and death of parents too!
My young kids watched this dinosaur movie and were not disturbed. But I think it’s ideal for kids who are old enough to understand what’s going on, and perhaps at least the age of when their teeth are falling out because one dinosaur has a loose tooth which kids of that age can relate to (albeit alongside dialogue in which a dinosaur is boasting that he drowned an enemy in blood). Another good beginning age is when your kids begin swimming lessons, since there’s a scene where the dinosaur learns how to swim.
What I did have a problem with was normalizing the look of chemtrails in the skies in the beginning of the movie, and later making light of consuming rotten food that made the characters hallucinate.
Warning: watching this might make your kid want to imitate “Spot”, a human who acts like a dog.
