Excellent review.  There are some intense scenes of action which could scare young viewers, but I am not sure I would call it violence.  Very clean otherwise!  I thought my four year old would beed help, but she did not.

Read some of the adventure classics before you go: Journey to the Center of the Earth, 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea, Gullivers Travels
