Certification

Sex & Nudity

  • Family oriented base drama. No female graphical nudity show.
  • None.

Violence & Gore

  • I would recommend to watch with children from 9yrs+ as there is quite a bit of violence and gore

Profanity

  • Mild language.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • The hunter is drinking while a bottle in his hand and is drunk.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Andy Serkis confirmed that this film is much darker and more serious than the 2016 film of "The Jungle Book" made by Disney.
  • BBFC/UK - Rated 12A (moderate threat, bloody images).
  • There are many dark frightening scenes within the film that are quite intense. Would recommend for children 9yrs+ with adult supervision.
  • Some of the characters can be frightening for some viewers, such as Kaa, who is a gigantic, sinister-looking Indian rock python with a creepy chanting voice and also, the fact that her facial expressions bear a striking resemblance to that of Cate Blanchett's, the actress who plays the character, give her an Uncanny Valley effect that makes her appearance even more unsettling and frightening. Baloo also can fall under this category, because he's a menacing-looking sloth bear with a very strict and demanding demeanor (commonly similar to that of a drill sergeant, an army instructor or, in extreme cases, maybe even an extremely brutal and ruthless dictator ruling a land with an iron fist) and a deep, grating and somewhat sinister voice. However, this is all intentional since the film is mostly meant to follow the characterization of the characters as described in the book this film is based on.

Spoilers

The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Violence & Gore

  • Rated PG-13 for intense sequences of action violence including bloody images, and some thematic elements. There is a scene mowgli and baloo come across a dead animal with violent cuts and his eye gouged out.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • An albino wolf cub is bullied by his siblings for being "different". The same wolf cub is later seen with his head mounted in a hunter's trophy 'lair'. The cub is a very childlike character, and the boy who finds his mounted head weeps silently for several seconds because they were friends. This scene is shocking and upsetting, and might be too intense for sensitive viewers.
