‘Sith’ zapped with PG-13 rating

Posted Saturday, April 09, 2005

A long time ago, in a galaxy far, far away, all “Star Wars” movies received a PG rating.

Not anymore.

“Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” has been given a PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America’s Classification and Ratings Administration.

“Revenge” has received the PG-13 for “sci-fi violence and some intense images.” (One could ask, on behalf of befuddled parents, exactly what “intense images” actually means. Mostly, it means the MPAA’s ratings explanations have gotten progressively muddled during the past few years.)

The new rating means “Revenge of the Sith” contains material that “may be inappropriate for children under 13.”

Director/writer George Lucas earlier hinted his movie would be the most intense of the six “Star Wars” chapters.

“It’s not like the old ‘Star Wars,’ ” Lucas told the Associated Press. “This one’s a bit more emotional.”
The previous five “Star Wars” films all received PG ratings. Lucas’ new, more emotional episode opens nationwide May 19.


Enjoy! Wink

I was hoping it be pg-13, if it wasn't, it probably wouldn't be as good as it should be.

Doesn't mean a lot, the OT could well have been rated PG-13 if there had been a PG-13 rating back then.....

Didn't they re-rate them for the SE though? Nothing was cut as far as I know.

It's not official. There's nothing on the MPAA website or FilmRatings.com. Razz

I don't care so much about graphic violence, limbs flying and junk like that, but if this rating means a darker, more intense, adult, serious theme, then I'm all for it.

As long as it takes a more serious tone, I'm happy with it. I didn't care much for the kiddy humor during Eps 1 & 2. I can do without stuff like Jar Jar Binks and "Battle Droid-3P0".
