What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that although this movie is rated G, it may be too scary or hard to follow for kids under 6 or 7. A minor character is killed off-screen, and characters are in peril throughout the movie.
- Families can talk about why it was hard for Rocky to tell the truth -- and even to understand what telling the truth meant (as when he said, "I didn't lie to them, dollface. I just omitted certain truths"). Families can also discuss Ginger's perseverance in the face of steep odds, her refusal to escape without her friends, and the importance of leadership and teamwork. Why does Ginger have a dream of freedom that some of the other chickens can't even imagine? What does it mean to say that "the fences aren't just around the farm -- they're up here on your head"?
