‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ Receives PG-13 Rating

Star Wars: The Force Awakens” has officially received a PG-13 rating, for content described as “sci-fi action violence.”

This will mark the second “Star Wars” film to receive a PG-13 rating, following the most recent installment in the franchise, 2005’s “Episode III: Revenge of the Sith.” All the other movies in the series were released with PG ratings.

The seventh film in the popular franchise opens on Dec. 18 and is predicted to rack up at least $170 million over its domestic opening weekend. “The Force Awakens” has already garnered more than $50 million in advanced ticket sales.

Director J.J. Abrams recently announced a charity contest to win tickets to the movie premiere in London or Los Angeles. Through a partnership with Omaze, fans that donate $10 or more can enter the contest to win, with the proceeds going to 15 different charities chosen by the cast and filmmakers.

For those that can’t wait for the Dec. 18 opening, Jimmy Kimmel interviewed the cast on a special “Star Wars” edition of the show Monday, calling the film “the most anticipated sequel I think since the New Testament.”
