More violent than the other pippi movies

This one is the most violent of the pippi movies & so I recommend you save it for last, although my daughter saw it when she was 4 and was fine with a little hand holding.

Is It Any Good?

Sure, the dubbing is just awful and the effects are so very early '70s, but Pippi-loving kids won't care a bit. This Swedish Pippi is perfect. She dances and sings while she faces off against pirates and shrugs off any difficulties with her extreme confidence that everything will turn out great.

This is kid adventure fantasy at its very best. Expect hours of pretend play after the movie's over with basements turned into desert islands, big boxes and bike parts made into airplanes, and the cardboard scraps made into cutlasses. En garde!

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
