This means, finally, the film is available to stream, and at the perfect time, over the Christmas period.
The film is a firm favourite with families, so this will likely be a popular movie over the next few weeks.
The BBFC writes: “Very mild threat includes sight of a girl falling through ice on a frozen pond; she is quickly rescued.
“There is a mild scuffle between sisters. There is a passing reference to hanging, as well as an oblique reference to working in a ‘cathouse’.
“A character dies and people are seen grieving.”
Overall, the film is lighthearted and not particularly upsetting, therefore most children should enjoy the adaptation and not find much to upset them – however all parents should consider their own child’s needs before taking them along.
