Star Wars: The Force Awakens officially rated PG-13

The following news will undoubtedly make no dent what-so-ever on the guaranteed box-office gross of STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS, but the MPAA has officially released their rating for the space opera, which is PG-13. They list "sci-fi action violence" as the reasoning, in case you were wondering if John Boyega will drop his Stormtrooper pants at any point in the flick. This will mark the second STAR WARS film to receive a PG-13, with the first being REVENGE OF THE SITH.

The PG-13 rating is par for course regarding the bulk of blockbuster flicks these days. If anything, this would be one of the few that had a shot at a PG rating, if only because of the series' previous relationship with the MPAA. Seriously, how do you get away with decapitating people with a laser sword in a PG flick? Will the Tusken Raider bias see no end?

Check out J.J. Abrams' PG-13 STAR WARS: THE FORCE AWAKENS on December 18th.
