Why is Chicken Little rated G? Chicken Little is rated G by the MPAA

Most parents won’t have any serious content concerns for ‘tweens and teens, but young viewers may find it a bit scary when aliens appear to attack Earth and vaporize many characters. There are also instances of teasing and name calling between popular and unpopular students. This ongoing confrontation is never resolved and ends on a somewhat vengeful note. Mild scatological humor, and a veiled nod to “Girls Gone Wild” (and a few other adult-oriented films) are also included, but these remarks will likely fly over the heads of most children.
