Sweet critter adventure, but some dark themes as well.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Once Upon a Forest is a colorful family movie that plays upon a child's deepest fears: the loss of a family or of home. This fact is glossed over while the friends are sent on an adventure. This lighthearted approach to mass destruction seems a little dated and may upset sensitive kids. The animals of Dapplewood forest start as an unruly bunch, but they come together to help a friend in dire need.
