A beautiful, hand-drawn depiction of a battle scene, there’s violence and some male nudity in it, not suitable for young children. We’ll have a Parental Guidance warning prior to this short so that parents and caregivers can usher children out of the theater if they’d like. Other than PROLOGUE, the program is acceptable for kids of all ages.
