Hi, just wondering if anyone here has seen this movie and whether you think its suitable for a 5 and a 7 year old?

My 5 and 7 year old both loved it! Gorgeous film.

No hesitation in taking this age group to see it. My 5 year old needed a few things explained so he could follow the story. If your child is easily scared (mine isn't) it might be a little scary in places.

DS1 who is 5 went yesterday with DH and loved it. He is easily scared and had no problems with it.

We sat down and watched a couple of the different previews with him first to make sure he wanted to go.

I took my 6.5 and 5 yr olds to see it and they both loved it. My 5 yo does sometimes get scared in movies but he really loved it and wasn't scared at all.

this site gives really conservative reviews - great if your kids are easily frightened like mine.  It tells you what the scary scenes are so you can judge for yourself if your children will cope.

DD's primary school(Yr's K-2) all went to see it, and there were no problems we heard of. DD8 loved it.

I took our not easily scared 9 and 5yo and they were fine. The movie I'd give 3 out of 5.

In term of reviews, we find www.commonsensemedia.org pretty good - informative, detailed, but with a mainstream common sense rather than religious conservative perspective.

Just came back from seeing it and yep, I can definitely recommend it!  Very nice story, beautiful animation and the kids both enjoyed it!

My 3yo and 6yo thought it was fantastic. They like fast paced movies with lots of action though.

I took DS (turning 5 in two weeks) to watch it the other day.

He loved it. I loved it. There wasn't anything in there that I thought was too scary for him. It was a fantastic movie.

DS8 and DS5 both loved it (so did I for that matter).  Neither were scared.  It's a lovely story.

It was a really great movie, my two (4 and 8) really enjoyed it as did I.  In fact, I thought it was great for dealing with nightmares and also those kids on the 'cusp' of believing/non believing in Santa/Easter Bunny/ Tooth Fairy etc.  Gorgeous movie!

#18 LynnyP

My 8 year old loved it but when I just asked her she was uncertain about a 5 year old.  I used the previously mentioned common sense media a lot.  It is a great site.

We took our 3 and almost 6 year old the other day. They both loved it, as did we.

I took DS1 6 to see it but wouldn't take my 3 year olds, DS2 has enough nightmares as it is I think this movie would just add to them
