What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that The Rescuers Down Under is a 1990 sequel to The Rescuers. Young environmentalists will love the anti-poaching message and the animated rainforest, and the brilliant scenery and a funny albatross will interest most youngsters, but there are still some scary moments that parents should be aware of: Cody is threatened with death-by-crocodile twice and McLeach is swept over a falls (to his death). McLeach fakes the boy's death and imprisons him in an abandoned mine. Cody, his eagle friend, and her eggs spend most of the film in jeopardy. There is lots of peril. A doctor almost uses a chainsaw as a medical tool. Despite the scares there are positive messages about courage and teamwork.
