    Threat and horror

    There are occasional fleeting scary scenes which include mild jump scares and brief, often comic misunderstandings around the introductions of various fantastical imaginary characters; these moments all have a reassuring outcome.


    There is very mild bad language (‘butt’, ‘God’, ‘hell’ and ‘damn’).

    Rude humour

    There is occasional rude humour, including a fart joke and a comic moment around an underdressed banana character.


    The film tackles themes of bereavement and the fear of losing loved ones in a sensitive and reassuring way, with undetailed references to cancer and other life-threatening illness. There are scenes of emotional upset around such issues as a young girl comes to terms with her grief and concerns for her family; these moments generally have a positive resolution.
