A new animated movie is making its way to Netflix on Friday, June 30, 2023! Nimona hit select theaters on June 23, but soon you’ll be able to watch it from the comfort of your own home. And while it’s an animation, that doesn’t always mean a production is appropriate for kids. What’s the case with the Netflix movie?
Set in a futuristic medieval world, Ballister Boldheart is framed for a crime he didn’t commit, per the synopsis. The only one who can help clear his name is Nimona, a “mischevious” teen who is a shapeshifter. That’s fine, right? Well, it’s actually Ballister’s task to destroy her. But with everyone in the kingdom against him, Nimona is Ballister’s best shot at clearing his name.
So is this the next film you can watch with your younger ones, or is it too mature? We’ve got the answer for you below!
Nimona parents guide and rating
According to the Motion Picture Association, Nimona is rated PG. It is also appropriately labeled on its Netflix page. In general, that means parental guidance is suggested due to some of the content in the movie not being suitable for children. Specifically, the film received a PG rating for violence and action, thematic elements, and some language and rude humor.
So is it family-friendly? Can everyone enjoy watching it? Even with some of the content being a bit much for younger kids, if parents are around then it should be ok. Netflix has released the sci-fi comedy as part of its “Kids & Family” category. So while you should be cautious going in, we think it’s a good choice for the next family movie night! And if you’re still not sure, be sure to check out the trailer to get an idea of what’s to come. We shared it below:
