Why is Alice in Wonderland (Disney’s) rated G? Alice in Wonderland (Disney’s) is rated G by the MPAA

Violence: A young girl finds herself in difficult and perilous situations throughout the movie. These include shrinking, growing, falling, near-drowning, being lost, as well as being threatened verbally and physically. Slapstick violence and property damage are depicted. A walrus befriends baby oysters so he can eat them. A character threatens to execute others for minor offences. An unjust trial is held and a character is forced to run for her life.

Sexual Content: A buxom woman adjusts her bra, and her underwear is briefly seen.

Language: Verbal threats are uttered.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Magic food causes characters to grow or shrink. Various characters use a pipe, cigar, and hookah-pipe (the exhaled smoke from one of them makes a child cough).

Note: The DVD and Blu-ray contain an anti-smoking disclaimer that runs before the movie begins.

Other: A child expresses deep concern when she is lost and fears she will never find her way home. Strange looking creatures and nightmarish sequences may frighten young viewers.

Alice in Wonderland was Walt Disney’s fifth full-length feature animated film. The first four were Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, Pinocchio, Fantasia and Bambi. His studio made a live-action version of Alice In Wonderland in 2010, with Tim Burton at the helm.

Kathryn Beaumont not only lent her voice to the character of Alice, but also to Wendy in Disney’s Peter Pan. Ed Wynn, who can be heard as the Mad Hatter in this film, plays a similar character hosting another hilarious tea party in the live-action movie Mary Poppins.
