Disturbing animation

There are alot of scenes and images which are not suitable for children to watch. There are alot of positive messages but the animation shown in it will be disturbing to an under age child.

I particularly enjoyed the beautiful images in this movie when I watched it back in April. I didn't mind the " sensual" images the mkvie warns about before it starts.
