A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this movie.

Educational Value

Each episode touches upon a new subject. Preschoolers will learn a little about Romans, television, wildlife, and more.

Positive Messages

Themes include communication and self-control. Positive portrayals of family and friendships. Characters are taught cleanliness, healthy eating, and kindness in an easy to understand manner. In one episode, some of the humor is based around burping.

Positive Role Models & Representations

Good diversity among the children represented. Peppa is generally thoughtful and kind, if at times a little bossy. Peppa's family and friends answer Peppa's questions, helping her development. In one episode about a male superhero, Miss Rabbit proves to be the real hero.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff
Language
Consumerism

There is no consumerism within the movie. But there is plenty of Peppa Pig merchandise available.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun is a collection of 10 episodes from the popular preschool TV series, packaged as a one-hour movie. Interspersed throughout each episode are real-life children who dance and sing about subjects including washing your hands and eating healthily. There is a good diversity among the children giving the movie an inclusive feel. All of the familiar characters from the TV show are here, displaying the same positive traits and attitudes. Peppa learns something from each episode. This includes life lessons like communication, patience, and self-control, but also about subjects such as the Romans and how television works. But alongside the educational elements there is plenty of warm humor and age-appropriate fun. Though there is no consumerism present, parents and guardians may find they are inundated with requests for various Peppa Pig merchandise after watching the movie.

What's the story?

PEPPA PIG: FESTIVAL OF FUN is a collection of 10 episodes featuring Peppa Pig (voiced by Harley Bird.) Join Peppa and her friends as she goes to the movies, attends a children's festival, celebrates Grandpa Pig's (David Graham) birthday, and more.

Is it any good?

Audiences expecting a movie version of Peppa Pig will be disappointed to discover that instead of an extended adventure, Peppa Pig: Festival of Fun is simply a collection of 10 episodes. Sandwiched between them are live-action scenes with children who engage with the audience encouraging them to sing along with songs about washing your hands and eating your five (or seven) fruit and vegetables a day. The songs themselves use tunes that will be familiar to most. But the new lyrics may require repeat viewing before younger viewers are able to sing along freely -- there's a subtle joke about this in one of the episodes that's a knowing nod to parents.

Other than the live-action, there's no surprises here. Parents can be assured that younger viewers will learn life skills -- as well as touch upon subjects such as the Romans and wildlife -- in a warm and humorous way. But packaging 10 episodes together under one title feels unnecessary and even a little dishonest. Sticking to the traditional episodic format also gives parents better control at managing how much Peppa kids watch.
