Star Wars 7: The Force Awakens is only the second Star Wars film to get the PG-13 rating. The other film to get this rating was Star Wars Episode 3: Revenge of the Sith.

Whether or not the new film is as violent and dark as Revenge of the Sith remains to be seen. It’s a sign that it might be darker than the other movies which only received a PG rating.

Star Wars: A New Hope nearly received a G rating. The only scene that prevented it from from getting a G rating was the scene that saw the charred remains of Aunt Beru and Uncle Owen.
