"Even more imaginative than the original" (The Washington Post), this sequel takes the three musketeers, Babe, Ferdy and Mrs. Hoggett, on a crusade into the midst of a large city where despite incredible obstacles, they're able to turn enemies into friends, raise enough money to save the farm and combine the two worlds into one. Once again, it's Babe's kind and steady heart that achieves miracles.

Critics Consensus: Not quite as good as the original and has some dark subject material that might not be appropriate for children.

It's George Miller's masterpiece, maybe even the best commercial film of 1998.

So distressingly dark, grim, and cynical it's likely to make kids cry!

BABE has all but lost its bearings.

Darker than the original, not for very young kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that while generally directed at kids, this sequel is scarier and more suspenseful than Babe, the very light-hearted original. There are a number of life-threatening incidents involving dogs, cats, and monkeys, as well as Babe and Ferdie, the duck; they're in danger throughout the film. Included are chase sequences (some with snarling dogs and bared teeth), falls, near drownings, and run-ins with frightening authorities who capture and cage the animals. In addition, numerous accidents happen to Farmer Hoggett and Mrs. Hoggett, and Babe is separated from his owner for a lengthy period of time in a turbulent city.
