Sex & Nudity

0.5/10

Prince Philip has to kiss Princess Aurora in order to break Maleficent's spell.

Some mild flirting between Philip and Aurora.

Violence & Gore

3.5/10

Several creepy characters attack Prince Phillip; they tie him up and gag him. He ends up in a dungeon chained to a wall.

Maleficent places a spell on baby Aurora that states she will prick her finger on a spinning wheel at age 16. This eventually happens, more or less. A small drop of blood drips from her finger.

Maleficent turns into a giant fire breathing dragon and attacks Prince Phillip. She surrounds him with fire and snaps at him with her teeth. He eventually kills her by throwing his sword at her; it strikes her in the heart (blood is shown) and she falls off a cliff to her doom.

The witch's creepy creatures try to stop the prince's escape by throwing rocks at him, firing arrows, or pouring boiling water on him. Fairies turn the rocks into bubbles, the arrows into harmless flowers, and the water into a rainbow.

A crow is turned to stone. Non graphic and non frightening

Profanity

1/10

When Maleficient's minions come back from a search for Aurora saying they searched the cradles she calls them "idiots".

As Maleficient transforms into a dragon, she calls on "all the powers of hell."

2/10

There are a couple of scenes where characters are drinking wine.

One minstrel is clearly drunk as he stumbles around and collapses after drinking a bottle of wine.

4/10

There's an evil character with several frightening pets and a scary castle which many kids might find frightening. They dance with crazy shadows around a bonfire.

The witch turns into a giant fire breathing dragon and attacks a prince. She surrounds him with fire.

Maleficent puts a spell on Aurora to get her to a tower; errie music underscores the scene and it becomes quite intense.

Maleficent might be scary to any viewer.

Total: 11/50

If this was a today's animation, it would probably be PG.

Suggested MPAA Rating: PG for some scary action and images.
