What Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that even children who are usually frightened by movie dragons might not find this dragon scary. The language is palatable for both kids and adults. There are a few action scenes of sword fighting and dragon slaying, yet they relate to the movie's messages about loyalty, duty, and social responsibility.
- Families can talk about myths and legends, such as the Arthurian legends. They might also discuss the idea of tyranny and a ruler's responsibility to those he rules. Concepts of sacrifice, duty, chivalry, and the threat of endangered species may also be good talking points.
