Note: The following text may contain spoilers

THE BOOK OF LIFE is an animated adventure set in Mexico about a young man who is torn between fulfilling the expectations of his family to be a famous matador and following his heart.

Violence

Occasional scenes of mild fantasy violence include matadors fighting bulls in an exaggerated and often comic style without any sight of bulls being killed. In one scene, the hero is encouraged to kill a bull with a sword, but he doesn't. One sequence shows villagers fighting bandits, but the fighting is broken up by characters bursting into song and there is no sight of injury.

Threat

Brief scary scenes include the hero being chased by rolling balls in a giant maze and sight of a large glowing skull. Characters in the underworld are all skeletons, but they are friendly-looking and are seen enjoying the afterlife with their friends and relatives.

The film also contains infrequent very mild bad language ('butt', 'bum'). In other scenes naughty children blow spitballs at a museum guard and a goat is seen defecating in surprise when a caterpillar eats one of its friends.
