    Yeah I know we're a year away from the movie, but with rumors that this will be a very WAR like movie with te potential for very gorey and graphic scenes, what do you think it's MPAA rating will inevitably be?

    PG13.
    It's war, but they use blasters...
    I'm not sure that we will see gore...

    Also Disney will want those dollars. :)


    If there was a rating between PG13 and R, I would think that would be the one.

    PG13 would be my guess as in the uk Spector which was more violent than TFA got the same rating so there is quite a range of content that a 12A covers

    Every SW film from here on out will be rated PG-13.

    Disney would never do an "R" rated film, and it would eliminate family audiences.

    "PG" now has a reputation for being child-friendly films, which would deter young adult males, the prime audience of the movies.

    So PG-13 is the most economical.

    It will be a hard PG-13

    An R rated star wars would be gross.

    Yeah, I think it's going to be a PG-13 rating for R1.

    However, I'd actually greatly appreciate a Disney-backed, 'Star Wars' film that earned an "Restricted" rating, it would get a chance to show something that hasn't been done within the franchise, (something many of us probably considered when we heard that this was to be "the 'Saving Private Ryan' of the Star Wars films"), and that is–to portray a relatively "realistic" level of terror /anguish /grit /suffering /&confusion that we commonly attribute to the more authentic, less glamorous films depicting violent conflict.

    ...but can (will) a Disney Star Wars do that? I'm not sure. (I doubt it.) While violence certainly isn't foreign to Disney films, this particular kind of violence I described above just might be.

    And though it may at first sound absurd, could such ghastly violence be realistically and viscerally portrayed without a congruent language? Is the f-bomb even "a thing" in the Star Wars universe? Hm. I say this because, in all honestly, it would take quite a performance for me to feel as affected by a "Karabast!!!" as opposed to a "F**K!!!!" ...but, hey- maybe that's just a provincial perspective within my personal culture.

    So regardless, though I'd be very curious and interested in a maximally "gritted-up" Star Wars film, I genuinely don't think it's in the cards. (And, to be clear, it's not that I think it'll be a poor film without the max-grit, –I have a very positive mindset in regard to the success of this R1 film based on what little I've seen & heard so far-- with or without the extreme darkness.)

    I'll be content with a grim PG-13!

    Ok, for the wise guy/gal who voted NC-17, it's ROGUE One, not Rough One (tusken)(emperor)

    "Parents Strongly Cautioned" and "Extended sequences of Sci-Fi violence and action" sound good to me ;)
