This was a VERY intense and dark movie compared to the other fairy movies which my daughters all love. I have a 5 and 7 year old who just saw this and were horrified. The beast--although meant to be good--is scary and unpredictable to young viewers, and he is never portrayed in a more friendly and cuddly way throughout the movie. The ending of the movie actually has Fawn DIE (!!!) but then get brought back to life. The green hurricane / storm that is part of the climax here was also very frightening for my kids as well. I was not a fan of this one.
