Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The appearance of Shere Khan may be a little bit scary, and might upset some very small children.
  • Some small children may find the appearance of python Kaa to be a bit creepy in a few times.
  • The battle between wild dogs and Mowgli's pack of animals is the most intense part of the entire film.
  • This Soviet cartoon movie has been made for children. Depending on how a child can handle scenes like the last two battle sequence written above, it is recommended that the child is accompanied by a parent, until he/she is used to it.
