In the words of the Motion Picture Association, G is for ‘General Audiences’ — all ages admitted, meaning there is nothing in theme, language, nudity, sex, violence or other matters that the ratings board thinks would offend parents whose younger children view the picture. It’s requirement include that no picture should “lower the moral standards of those who see it.”
The G rating is not a “certificate of approval,” nor does it mean that it’s a children’s film. There’s a thin blurry line when it comes to ratings and often times it can get confusing. Films such as ‘ Up’, ‘Tangled’, ‘Inside Out’ etc are not included in the list because they were rated as ‘PG (Parental Guidance). There are however many ‘G Rated’ films that are masterpieces in their own right. Below is a list of the top G-Rated movies ever. You can watch many of these best g-rated movies on Netflix, Hulu, or Amazon Prime.

Mulan is a 1998 animated action comedy musical drama that was produced by Walt Disney Pictures based on the Chinese legend of Hua Mulan. Mulan’s sick father is ordered to join the army to fight against the invading Huns. Unwilling to risk her father’s life, she disguises herself as a man and joins the army in his place. Mulan is a fantastic Feminist story that uplifting and inspiring. The titular character does not really fit the ‘princess mold’ that Disney films usually have but that’s the best thing about her.
