MPAA Rated PG for some mild peril

Sex & Nudity

  • No sex or nudity shown.
  • There is a scene with two with bare breast pictures on the dance stage back-wall.
  • It's implied in one scene that Sugar Plum Fairy is aroused by her toy soldier army, but it's a subtle joke that will definitely not be picked up on by children.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a sword fight against the 4th realm jesters but they apparently can't be hurt since they are hollow?
  • Soldiers are overtaken by mice and some are swallowed up in sink holes.
  • There is a sword fight / battle between palace soldiers and tin soldiers. No blood is shown (the tin soldiers have none).


  • Clara's godfather, Drosselmeyer, played by Morgan Freeman says "damn"
  • 2 offensive uses of "god"

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The mouse king is made up of thousands of mice that form into a giant humanoid creature that would be frightening for younger viewers.
  • A young girl almost falls to her death while traversing a cliff face.
  • At the beginning of the scene where Clara meets Ginger, a Matryoshka doll clown appears. People who are scared of clowns will want to avoid this scene. Also, it's a jumpscare since he appears out of nowhere.
