Cartoon adaptation of famous book is a great intro for kids.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that this adaptation of J.R.R. Tolkien's YA-novel favorite has cartoon violence in battle scenes. There is a village-destroying dragon, predatory giant spiders, and discreet fatalities; sometimes dead bodies are shown in the distance. Sympathetic characters do die after a climactic battle. Students assigned to read The Hobbit in school might be tempted to use this faithful adaptation as a shortcut. This is not to be confused with a super-sized, live-action Hobbit later directed by Peter Jackson.
