Points for parents

  • Violence: Some dinosaurs eat their prey. Other dinosaurs threaten and try to capture others. The hero fights with pterodactyls. A human fights a snakelike creature. Raptors must also be fought. A pterodactyl has its wing damaged.
  • Intensity: This film has a Lion King moment where a character dies. Frightening scenes of peril in a river and during storms. One scene of illness after eating rotten fruit.
  • Themes: Dealing with your fears. Finding your true self. Being part of a family. Overcoming obstacles in life.
