Points for parents

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.
