Watch the trailer and see what issues you can spot before making a recommendation. Should the trailer be a U or a PG? Then click through and compare your notes to those of a BBFC Examiner.

The trailer emphasises that it’s based on a well-known book and many children (and adults) in the audience will be familiar with the story. Do you know the story? Does this affect how you look at the trailer? Remember, when you watch a trailer in the cinema you have chosen to see a different film. If a trailer is passed U, for example, it may be shown before a film with a very young audience. How much would that audience understand?
