Age assessment of the soul BBFC classification and Pixar film guidelines

There are few film studios with better results providing wonderful family entertainment than Pixar, and its latest feature animation is another pleasure for both adults and children.

Soul plays the voice of Oscar winner Jamie Foxx as a jazz lover and high school music teacher Joe Gardner, who after an accident while crossing the road headed to “Great Before” – shortly after performing at a gig for legendary jazz musician Dorothe Williams.

In The Great Before, Joe is tasked with mentoring a particularly difficult “mental training” that a number of historical figures – including Gandhi, Muhammad Ali and Carl Jung – have unsuccessfully prepared for Earth and must work with souls to return to Earth before his the body dies.

As we expected from Pixar, the film deals with a number of deep topics and difficult topics in an accessible and playful way, so what age rating did the BBFC give? Read everything you need to know.

What is the age rating of Soul?

The British Film Classification Board (BBFC) gave Soul a PG rating, which of course indicates parental leadership.

The reasons for grading PG, unlike the U certificate, are mild bad languages ​​and fantasy, and a longer description from the BBFC reads: “There are also rare mild bad languages ​​(‘c ** p’) as milder expressions, such as” God ”and“ butt ”. There are scenes of mild fantasy threat, in which the characters find themselves in another realm that controls life and death. The protagonist dies, but this is comically presented, without any details of the injuries, and immediately turns into a vivid state like a stain.

“Other scenes contain darker creatures resembling spots, which at first look threatening, but do no harm. There is also a scene in which the character is surrounded by upcoming figures who belittle the comments, but the emphasis is on the resourcefulness of the main character who will help them save them. “

So while the film deals with the theme of death – similar to Pixar’s earlier bandit Coco – it’s done in a way that shouldn’t be too disturbing for young children.

Soul arrives at Disney + on Christmas 2020. You can sign up for Disney + with an annual subscription of £ 59.99 or £ 5.99 per month.
