MPAA Rated PG for sequences of violence and peril, and some thematic elements

Sex & Nudity

  • None. Basically the closest thing at all is Scar keeps pestering Sarabi to be his queen. The animals are depicted without any visible reproductive organs.
  • All animals do not show their private areas at all since they're all computer generated.

Violence & Gore

  • The main villain, Scar, is shown (fully onscreen) slashing open and devouring a gazelle, though no blood is shown.
  • Lions fight together, and with other animals, using bites, throws and blows to the face.
  • The death of loved-ones is a theme of the film.
  • A lion's chin is seen to be bloody while feeding.


  • Timon says Thank God who is the brains around here
  • There is rude humour concerning a flatulent warthog, as well as infrequent use of very mild bad language ('God').

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Cubs are chased by hyenas intent on killing them.
  • Just like the original, Scar kills Mufasa by throwing him off a cliff. This is very intense and emotional.
