A DOG'S JOURNEY is a comedy drama sequel in which a reincarnated dog tries to support a young girl into adulthood.

Threat

A teenage boy roughly grabs a teenage girl's arm, tearing her sweater, and later tries to chase her down in a car, causing a crash. The threat is brief and mild, and there is no visible blood or injury detail.

Theme

There are mild scenes of emotional upset when characters, both dog and human, pass away. The overall tone is uplifting, however.

There is a brief and discreet drug references and other scenes feature infrequent, mild references to grown up themes such as serious illness and children's problems at home. Other issues include occasional very mild bad language.

More information about the grown up themes in this work, and the classification of all other films, is available for grown ups on the main BBFC website and on the free to download BBFC app.
