‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ 12A Rating Confirmed | Film News



With the days slowly ticking down to the most anticipated film of the year Star Wars: The Force Awakens, the BBFC have confirmed the rating of the film. The BBFC remains consistent with the the United States’ MPAA PG-13 rating, so will be rated 12A in the UK. This is only the second film in the family friendly Star Wars series to get a 12A rating along with Revenge of the Sith.


The BBFC website states:


“STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS is a sci-fi action adventure in which a young woman becomes embroiled in a galactic conflict.


Violence: There are frequent scenes of moderate violence, including use of blasters and lightsabers, and dogfights between spaceships. Sight of blood and injury detail is limited and brief.


Threat: Occasional scenes of moderate threat include characters being interrogated using ‘the Force’, which it is implied causes them pain, and characters being held at lightsaber-point.


Language: There is infrequent use of very mild bad language (‘hell’, ‘damn’)”.


So excuse my language but I am ‘damn’ excited about Star Wars and I am cluthing my tickets for the release date on December 17!
