Dark Themes

I'm shocked this movie got a G rating. At the very beginning, a baby is almost downed and the babies mother is killed. A woman is burned at the stake because she is a "witch." Lots of ethnic slurs and stereotypes. Cruel and abusive behavior towards the main character by a "parent" figure. So much yuck for young kids to see in one movie. But Disney plus was sure to warn me about smoking of all things.

This title has:

Too much violence
