Kids read fantasy literature with these themes, and the topic is addressed in some works aimed for kids. (And many prominent religious texts do as well, which are definitely under the purview of family.)>how the downfall of man stems from his own actions and hubris
This is a pretty universal theme that pops up in a surprisingly diverse array of stories/animated works, and many of them are aimed at kids.
It wasn't the story itself or its themes that was the reason for Beowulf's rating. It was the T&A and gore. Can I theoretically make an adaptation of Beowulf that lacks these things? Sure I can. Would it still be accessible for kids? Most likely. And this is not a problem at all!
Conversely, I can put a lot of inappropriate humor, violence, and nudity into a simple premise with one-note characters and market it towards "adults". (Tellingly enough, though, kids will still eat these types of shows up and ask for more. They have stories they can easily understand AND has stuff they can giggle at while looking over their shoulder in case Mom walks in.)
But there are some topics that kids, growing up in a safe and more-or-less normal state of
