Why is The Good Dinosaur rated PG? The Good Dinosaur is rated PG by the MPAA for peril, action and thematic elements.

Violence: Good-natured sibling rivalry occurs, along with some mean spirited teasing and name-calling. A timid character is forced to face his fears, both real and imaginary. A character is in constant peril from Mother Nature (storms, flashfloods), various scary monsters and dangerous terrain—some injuries, unconsciousness and deaths result. Characters brag about the scars they have received during life threatening battles. Prey and predator violence is depicted, and several creatures are eaten. Death treats are made. Characters are orphaned and suffer emotional distress.

Sexual Content: Humans are clothed only in loincloths. A character tries without much success to find a private place to go to defecate.

Language: Some name-calling and teasing are depicted. A scatological slang is partially heard.

Alcohol / Drug Use: Characters eat fermented fruit and have a hallucinogenic experience.
