'The Jungle Book': Points for parents
Posted April 19
Points for parents
• Violence: Animals attack one another, sometimes ending in death. Some fights are drawn out for a while, and others are over quickly. A snake coils around Mowgli. Mowgli is stung many times by bees. Bahgeera, Baloo and Mowgli are chased and attacked by monkeys. A building falls down onto an animal. An animal falls from a tree into a fire.
• Gore: Shere Kahn’s face is disfigured from an attack by a human.
• Peril: Mowgli finds himself in the middle of a stampede while being chased by Shere Kahn. A fire threatens the jungle. Baloo and Bahgeera must climb a cliff.
