Is Big Hero 6 safe for kids? In Disney’s newest animated film, be sure to read Big Hero 6 Movie Review | Safe for Kids? Parents Guide, a full no spoiler mom review of the film.
Big Hero 6 Movie Review | Safe for Kids? #BigHero6
Something BIG has just hit theaters today. And I can’t wait to share my latest movie love. Going in, I knew the movie was going to be amazing. After my Big Hero 6 Preview on my Disney media trip, the sneak peeks of the movie definitely perked my interest. Just the amazing graphics alone were enough! But my husband on the other hand, he actually wasn’t excited to see this movie at all. Did Big Hero 6 exceed his expectations? Is the PG rating safe for your little kids to see? All that and more reasons to take your family to see the latest Disney Animated Film, in the Big Hero 6 Movie Review.
To quote my husband, this movie was “amazingly surprising, in a good way.” I’d have to whole heartedly agree. While I did get to preview some amazing footage in L.A., it didn’t quite compare to piecing together the storyline during the film. Experiencing Hiro’s teen cockiness, his pain over his brother’s death, the strong bond of friendship with the loveable Baymax, and watching the full story unfold and fully appreciating the amazing graphics in 3D, we were all just blown away.
The Story – Family Fun
There’s definitely a little something for everyone in this movie. Humor that both parents and kids can enjoy (oh yes, my 6 year old was laughing the LOUDEST in the theater), a touching story, and action in every turn, this is not your typical “Asian animated film.” Disney really took Big Hero 6 to another level of awesome. A loveable squishable robot named Baymax, some cool nerdy gadgets, hilarious side kick friends, a bad guy identity reveal, and a classic Disney happy ending (with a twist), your family will love watching this movie together, again and again.
That PG Rating
Is Big Hero 6 safe for kids? Parents definitely want to know about that PG rating. It’s certainly a big question mark when it comes to taking little ones, especially ones like mine (age 6 years and almost 2). Is Big Hero 6 like a Disney Frozen PG rating or is this film in another realm of ratings that parents should be concerned about? Big Hero 6 is rated PG for “action and peril, some rude humor, and thematic elements.”
I honestly didn’t catch any rude humor that was memorable, though there definitely are moments when Hiro is acting rude. The action and “bad guy” fighting scenes are definitely something that parents are going to want to pre-screen. There’s no blood, but certainly some fist swinging, crazy technological weapons, battle sequences with a creepy bad guy and a “scary” Baymax moment. But at the heart of that PG rating, in my opinion, gears more towards the death of Hiro’s brother, Tadashi. Hiro loses his brother during the movie and would certainly have any little kid asking “what happened.” So if you’re not wanting to explain the idea that the brother dies in a building fire explosion….then perhaps this is not the movie for you.
Don’t forget to FEAST on the latest Disney Short!
And if you needed any other reason to go see this movie, you’re going to LOVE the amazing new movie short, FEAST! With the focus of food and the clever visuals that will have your family, laughing, crying and in awe for the those few precious minutes, I seriously could watch this short over and over. It’s so good!
***Make sure to stay all the way through the credits of the movie for a surprise little ending scene. Trust me, definitely worth holding that pee break, especially for those Marvel fans 🙂

My kids can’t wait to see this movie. It looks so cute.

This is on our list of movies to see, even though the kids are grown. We know great movies when we get hooked by the previews. I think Walt Disney has the biggest grin in Heaven just knowing that his legacy continues to make people happy, regardless of the challenge and discouragement from daily life.
This looks really fun. We don’t have plans to see it yet, but will hopefully soon.
We are looking forward to seeing this movie. It looks like it’s perfect for kids and adults alike.
How fun! My boys are looking forward to this – I have no idea what it is but looks really fun!
Liz Mays says
Sometimes I love those shorts nearly as much as the movie. I’m looking forward to this whole thing, start to finish!
Pauline C. says
So excited for Big Hero 6! Gonna watch it with my nephews.:)
Debbie Denny says
This is a great movie. Can’t wait to see it.
I actually want to go see this badly. I saw the preview when going to see another Disney film recently and said I MUST see this. Sadly I cannot take my sons to the theater, my aspergers son wouldn’t last and my hyper six year old wouldn’t last either, unless by chance it holds their attention into the film like a zombie gaze, in that case it would be a fun family trip. I will certainly be seeing this when out on blu-ray or DVD though!
Ann Bacciaglia says
I have been looking forward to seeing this movie. I am going to take my friends kids to see it.
I am glad to know about the one scene that his brother dies. I may hold off on watching this movie with my younger kids.
My boys want to see this! I think we’ll go this weekend!
I think this one sounds cute. I’d like to take my 7yr old, and I’m glad to know it’s not going to be over his head or too much for him to see.
Tonia @TheChattyMomma says
Good to hear this is safe for kids. I hate taking my kids to shows that turn out to be to much for them to handle. I love films for kids.
My 4 year old went with my mom to see Big Hero 6 over the weekend. I’m quite bummed they didn’t wait until a day when I could have went with them!
I’ll have to take my family to this one. I know my son will love it!
