I dont think so. I think they handled the scene pretty well. The death happened offscreen and we didnt even hear it happen. No blood, no gore, no screams. It could be seen as a pretty frightening moment, but nothing too traumatic for young kids. Plus its all over pretty quickly.
You didn't see it. You didn't see all his little brothers and sisters get eaten either. It would have been too horrific to show that.
That scene definitely catches the viewer off guard...I was in the 6th grade when I first saw the movie and I have to say it kind of disturbed me lol. Also, putting a character's death in the very beginning of the movie is kind of odd, so that adds to the disturbing-ness as well.
