Story

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience - Peppa’s Australian Holiday includes nine new Peppa Pig episodes, including four special Australian episodes. Between the episodes, the audience joins Peppa, George and their friend Daisy in an interactive singalong.

In the episodes, Peppa goes on her first holiday to Australia, where she has a barbeque in the outback, learns how to surf, visits the Great Barrier Reef and learns how to throw a boomerang. When Peppa returns to England, she learns how to ride a bike, meets the Queen, goes to the zoo, travels on a canal boat and learns different ways to dance to music.

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience has some scenes that could scare or disturb some young children, if children see the movie on a large screen. For example:

  • While Daddy Pig and George are swimming in the ocean, a big wave comes and Peppa is scared for a moment. Daddy and George end up surfing the wave and everyone is fine.
  • Peppa accidentally breaks Mr Wallaby’s window with a boomerang. Mr Wallaby is very friendly about the situation and Peppa apologises and offers to help him fix the window.
  • The Queen jumps the bus over London Tower Bridge. The bus gets stuck at the top of the bridge for a moment, but then the bus makes it safely to the other side.
  • While Peppa and friends are at the zoo, a crocodile jumps out of the water and scares Peppa’s preschool teacher.

Ideas to discuss with your children

Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience is a fun and educational comedy for young children.

The short episodes and interactive content make this movie an excellent first cinema experience. If very young children see the movie on a large screen, they might be scared by the brief scenes with the crocodile and the giant wave. Peppa Pig is suitable for children aged five years and over, although it might be boring for children over eight years.

The main messages from this movie are about the importance of being careful and responsible – for example, when riding a bike, playing with boomerangs or exploring new environments. The movie also shows how exciting things can be when you use your imagination.

Values in this movie that you could reinforce with your children include kindness, and the importance of spending time with family and friends.
