    We had the same experience. I took my DS (4 1/2) and the actual movie was fine. The short before hand had him flip over, shriek and bury his face into the chair. I find pg is a very broad category and some stuff is fine, others completely inappropriate.
    Once he had calmed down, I did find that short useful to explain a little about religion and how people see gods etc. but yeah- it was too full on and should have had a warning.

Coincidentally DD has started having nightmares since that day.

    The movie was rated G and the shorts for the movie showed it was suitable for my DD but the mini movie beforehand would have been PG rated and I believe I inappropriate for a 3 (almost 4) year old.

    So 1. Do you think it's inappropriate to show something scary for 5 minute prior to a G rated kids cartoon?

    And 2. Would you complain to the cinema?

    I just don't see why they had to play it before the movie. It wasn't a movie preview, it wasn't dinosaur related, it was totally random.
    The movie is rated PG, not G, and comes with the consumer advice that 'Mild themes and threat, some scenes may scare young children'

    Thanks everyone. It looks like I need to put a complaint into myself for not being diligent enough to look into it. I swear it was G though. DD said she wanted to see it, I thought it was G and a friend said her son (who is very sensitive) saw it with his dad and was bored by it.

    DD was talking about going to the movies again to see Charlie Brown and the Peanuts movie, perhaps that would have been a better choice at the start.

    I'll definitely check the ratings better next time and the sores PPs have recommended.

    It took us until 10:30pm to get her to sleep last night. This from the kid who has consistently self settled and slept through the night since she was 12 months old. Poor thing is so clingy too. So we will just ride it out and as a PP said chalk it up to experience.

    We're going to see Peanuts today, I'll let you know how it is. Hopefully your DD recovers from it soon. I'm grateful my two seem to be over it but DS2 was really scared if the short and not really bothered by the film. DS1 has had a lot of questions about death since.....

    I actually cried at the end of it 😂

    That short movie was terrifying! My kids 3 & 5 were so scared, and both were also a bit scared by The Good Dinosaur - no long lasting effects though thankfully.

    I hope your DD recovers from her fear quickly and enjoys the Peanut movie!

    I hope she goes better tonight... It's an easy assumption to make, dinosaur cartoon = kids movie.

    Thank you, that would be great.

    My DDs dream was "There was a rainbow phone with a button on it and daddy pushed the button twice and it went *plew* and then I was died!"

    For those who have seen the short and the film, would you say that's a combination of both?

    I cried at the end too! Haha

    I definitely think the short was more scary. I was with my friend and her 4 year old screamed at the beginning of the short but was fine throughout the movie.
