  • BBFC ratings information (may contain spoilers)


    Scenes of very mild natural world violence feature animals fighting in undetailed fashion.

    Threat and horror

    There are scenes of mild natural world threat as animals are chased and menaced by predators such as killer whales and polar bears, or face danger from crumbling icebergs and large ships encroaching on their territory. The intensity in these scenes is not unduly sustained, and an accent is placed on the bravery and resourcefulness of characters in danger working together to extricate themselves from their predicaments.


    There is infrequent mild bad language (‘crap’) and very mild terms (‘darn’).

    Rude humour

    A fish affected by being in colder waters sniffles and sneezes, and a comical bubble of snot is seen hanging from the end of its nose.

    Dangerous behaviour

    A young whale’s face turns red as it attempts to hold its breath underwater for as long as possible without coming up for air, as whales must do.

    Injury detail

    There is brief sight of blood around the mouth of a killer whale as it finishes eating one its victims following an attack on a colony of seals. A cut on the head of a young beluga whale produces a small cloud of blood, and an older whale carries the scars of age on its body.


    The film’s treatment of themes of illness in elderly characters and bereavement is sensitive and responsibly pitched at younger viewers. Scenes of mild emotional upset include younger characters being with parents in their last moments, dealing with ailing elderly relatives and a pregnant whale miscarrying her baby. Those affected find comfort and reassurance from others. There is also occasional, very mild bullying between young characters, which is clearly disapproved of.
