Frightening imagery

The film contains some images that may frighten young children such as skeletons falling apart and reassembling. Many of the scary moments are done in a humorous way.

There is a large spirit guide animal, Pepita, which is an alebrije that looks like a cross between a giant cat and an eagle with a lizard-like tail. This creature is large and intimidating. We see it growling and pouncing and its roar may startle younger viewers.

We see a character die by poisoning. We also see a young character thrown off a high cliff. These scenes may be shocking and frightening for younger viewers.


There are moments of violence, such as a character being crushed by a bell twice. A character intentionally smashes Miguel's guitar in a heated argument.
