Common Sense Media:
Although most of the frights are played for laughs, some scenes may be too scary for younger kids.

Talk About It

Families can talk about costume ideas inspired by the cartoons. If you celebrate Halloween, what are some of your family's fun traditions and activities? They can also talk about their favorite scary characters. Who's the scariest and why? Which scary Disney characters aren't in the movie?
