Why is Up rated PG? Up is rated PG by the MPAA for some peril and action.

While this animated film contains a strong storyline and well-timed humor, there are several scenes of intense peril and some violence that may disturb younger viewers. An old man hits another man over the head with his cane. The result is a bloody head injury. An animal bleeds after being bitten on the leg. A child falls from a second story in an old house resulting in a broken arm. A character admits to tearing a picture out of a library book. A sad young couple is shown in a doctor’s office after learning they cannot have a child. An elderly character experiences loneliness after the illness and death of a loved one. Travelers experience the tumult of thunder and rainstorms. On several occasions, dogs chase humans or other animals. Animals fall over a cliff into a river below. A dog bites a man. Two men fight using a sword, cane and other items. Moments of peril are shown when a house is started on fire, pilots in fighter planes shoot darts at a child before crashing and an animal is captured in a net. Later, characters are shown crawling along the top of a blimp. A character falls from the blimp with death implied. A character makes comments about using the bathroom in the wilderness. Dogs serve champagne to two human adults.

In Up‘s opening short, Partly Cloudy, storks are shown delivering babies of both the human and animal type. One stork has his head bitten by a baby alligator, is bunted by a baby mountain goat and impaled by a baby porcupine. Later he is shocked by an electric eel.
