A boy is riding in a car with his parents when they swerve to avoid a deer. The car rolls over and the parents are killed. The boy escapes with no visible injuries.

A man prepares to shoot at a dragon, but the dragon grabs the rifle away and drops it with the barrel bent.

One use of "hellfire."

The themes in the film generally have a low sense of threat or menace, and are justifiable by context.

The film contains some scenes that are mildly threatening and may unsettle younger viewers.

At the beginning, a boy is briefly menaced by a pack of wolves, but they are scared off by a dragon.

In one scene, a group of men uses tranquilizers and ropes to capture a dragon.

In another scene, a dragon breathes fire onto a bridge, causing it to crumble and putting a couple's life in danger.

However, the sense of threat is kept brief as the sequences are resolved with positive endings.

Overall, the film should be appropriate for younger audiences. Parental guidance is advised.

'Pete's Dragon' is a 2016 remake of the 1977 film of the same title. The story revolves around a young orphaned boy named Pete who befriends a dragon that he nicknames Elliot. One day, Pete, who lives alone in the forest, is picked up by a family living in a nearby town. Elliot leaves the forest in search of Pete and finds that the world outside of the forest is far more dangerous.
