Sweden’s Board of Film Censors sees 3D films differently.
The stereoscopic version of WB’s “Cats and Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore” has been slapped with a PG rating, meaning children younger than 7 must be accompanied by an adult, while the 2D film got the universal G rating.
Board of Film Censors CEO Anki Dahlin said, “We had two teams watching the 2D and 3D versions. Those who saw the 2D version did not experience the effects as strongly as those who saw them in 3D. The 3D effects were difficult for a 4-year-old to handle.”
Board had previously announced it might make different decisions for 2D and 3D versions. Dahlin said, “The business has accepted this.”
Eric Broberg, Disney’s senior VP and general manager for Scandinavia, said, “There are no scientific facts that state that 3D should be more dangerous. We haven’t had any 3D theaters filled with crying kids.”
