THE TALE OF THE PRINCESS KAGUYA is a Japanese animated feature, dubbed into English, about a couple who find a baby in a bamboo shoot and raise her to be a princess.

Violence

Mild violence as a man is beaten up in the street. He is punched a few times and left with a slightly bruised and grazed face but not seriously hurt.

Nudity

Several sequences of natural nudity as babies and children run around or bathe with no clothes on. The animation style is simple and undetailed, and there is no sexualisation to any of the nudity.

There are also some scenes of very mild threat, including a storm at sea with clouds which take on the shape of dragons
