A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Some practical lessons for preschoolers about everyday life, such as going to the toilet before a movie starts, and being careful with scissors. Characters also bake and do arts and crafts.
Positive depictions of family and friends. Curiosity and a willingness to learn are key themes. Some messaging around the importance of practicing something in order to improve and how you can turn a negative situation into a positive one.
Positive Role Models
Peppa is always wanting to learn, asking questions and putting the answers into practice. She can be a bit bossy toward her friends and little brother, George. But she's well-liked and is fun to be around. Mummy and Daddy Pig are always supportive of Peppa and spend time with her and George, taking them on exciting adventures.
Good racial diversity with regard to the kids in the non-animated segments. One family is biracial and another appears to be made up of two moms and a daughter. One of Peppa's friends, Mandy Mouse, uses a wheelchair. She is not defined by her disability, is independent, and is always included in any games and activities. A wide range of accents are displayed by the animated characters, although the actors providing the voices are often not of that nationality.

Violence & Scariness
Daddy Pig is scared of heights and hides in a caravan when the family finds themselves near the edge of a cliff. But it's very much played for laughs. The caravan later becomes loose and hurtles down a hill, but there's no real peril or harm caused.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Peppa's Cinema Party is a collection of 10 episodes from the popular preschool TV series. Families familiar with the show can expect more of the same here, with the addition of special guest appearances by Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom, who provide the voices for Ms. Leopard and Mr. Racoon, respectively. Throughout, Peppa Pig (voiced by Amelie Bea Smith) and her friends navigate various life lessons, such as the importance of practice for improvement and how to turn a bad situation into a good one. Peppa can be bossy at times, but she's fun, well-liked, curious, and willing to learn. One of Peppa's friends is a wheelchair user who's depicted as being independent and always involved in the various games and activities. The real-life children who sing, dance, and interact with Peppa and her friends between episodes also represent a diverse range of backgrounds. In one episode, Daddy Pig (Richard Ridings) is shown to be scared of heights, and a runaway caravan flies down a hill. But there's no real threat or harm.

Is It Any Good?
Such is the power of Peppa Pig that these 10 new episodes, packaged as one viewing experience, includes the voices of two very special guests. Popping up to provide the voices for Ms. Leopard and Mr. Racoon in Peppa's Cinema Party are none other than Katy Perry and Orlando Bloom. The real-life A-list couple are said to be fans of the much-loved preschool show and were encouraged to join the project by their young daughter. Both give it their all as Perry's dressmaker character and Bloom's jeweler help organize a wedding that spreads across three of the 10 episodes. Elsewhere, there's an amusing outing for Peppa and her family involving a caravan, while interspersed between the animation is some live action that includes singing and dancing. All of which makes for a fun time with a character who is celebrating 20 years of entertaining kids around the world.
