THE GOOD DINOSAUR is an animated adventure about a dinosaur who finds himself lost in the wilderness, and must face his fears in order to find his way back home.

Threat

Frequent scenes of threat include characters falling into rushing rivers with the threat of drowning; one character is trapped in the water as the river rises and a giant wave overwhelms him. Strong storms and hungry animals threaten the heroes, and present physical and emotional challenges they must overcome.

Violence

Mild violence includes villainous animals snapping at and biting other animals and a young boy as they hunt for food and torment their prey. Sight of scratches from accidents and fights are licked to help them heal and there is a reference to a T. Rex having drowned his opponent in his own blood, but we see nothing.

The death of a parent lacks detail, and the theme of bereavement is treated discreetly and tenderly.

Two characters eat some berries that result in a mildly hallucinogenic scene before the effects wear off.

There is an implied, but unfinished, use of mild bad language: "Picking between the bull.....'.
