Star Wars: The Force Awakens gets PG-13 rating
The upcoming seventh instalment of Star Wars franchise has received PG-13 rating.
It becomes the second movie in the series to receive a PG-13 rating following 2005’s “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith”, reported Aceshowbiz.
It has got the rating for content described as “sci-fi action violence.”
PG-13 is the default rating for mainstream blockbusters including this year’s Jurassic World, Avengers: Age of Ultron, Furious 7 and The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2. In total, eight of this year’s top 10 movies are rated PG-13.
All other Star Wars films were released in PG ratings as the PG-13 rating was only created in 1984, after the release of the original Star Wars trilogy.
