Note: The following text may contain spoilers

TALES FROM EARTHSEA was classified 'PG' and contains infrequent moderate violence and scary moments.

Moderate violence is in the form of fights with swords, daggers and between dragons. On one occasion a hand is severed and two dragons are seen drawing blood during a fight. Otherwise all fights are shown without the detail of impact or injury. BBFC Guidelines at 'PG' state that ‘moderate violence, without detail, may be allowed, if justified by its setting (e.g. historic, comedy or fantasy)’. Additionally the final reel has mild to moderate scary moments and characters in danger.

Additionally the film contains one mild drug reference which clearly states that drug-taking is a bad thing. It also contains an implied reference to mistreatment of a child by slave traders.
