So is JJ gonna make a PG or PG-13 film? Has he ever done anything for kids?
I hope it's PG-13... it has worked before for Star Wars, it can work again.
::chanting:: pg 13 pg 13 pg 13
Ideally I'd love to see an R-rated Star Wars film, but that will unfortunately never happen.
That seems like a silly idea to me. Much of the good about the OT is that it is family friendly. If you want a movie with mature language and stuff then it's better to have an mature story. That's not Star Wars.
I want pg. I want to take the kids.
You can still take the kids to pg 13! Also episode 3 was pretty heavy for kids
We almost got an M-rated SW video game. With the prospect of spinoff films, I could almost, almost, see them doing a more mature one somewhere down the line.
I don't wanna have to explain to a 7 yo where babies come from and why romeo and juliet killed themselves.
Well of course... but there's a part of me that would enjoy what an R-rated Star Wars film could do.
My 8-year-old has seen ROTS about 876395 times, the first time being when he was six. He's seen several other PG-13 movies as well, but it will be awhile before I let him watch anything rated R. I think I started watching R-rated movies when I was 11 or 12.
It depends on the kid and the movie as to whether you could take kids to a PG-13 movie. As far as Abrams, I'd rather see a movie rated PG-13 or R than see a dumbed-down movie with villains who get defeated easily by Elmo and Dora the Explorer and live happily ever after.
I could also see a more mature SW movie or TV show at some point.
@Frank T. If my kid asked about Romeo and Juliet, I'd just say they killed themselves because they were stupid. As far as I'm concerned, that's the truth.
You did just remind me that the birds and bees talk is going to have to come sooner rather than later though. Oh hell.
So no sex, but offscreen murdering of a room full of children and on screen death of adults is ok? Choke outs, dismemberment, exploding starfighters...a Death Star FULL OF PEOPLE explodes... twice!
If I hadn't seen SW and Empire and Jedi before I hit puberty I would've never cared about it. Same with these comic book movies. If there's gonna be mature themes and stuff I want hard sci fi or no sci fi.
Exactly. You turned out ok so I'm sure your kids will too!
I get by.
I'm never having kids... I would consider it a disappointment & a personal failure if I did.
I want kids but not now. Someday
I didn't have kids until my mid-30s and I'm glad I waited that long.
Well now that I've met the girl I'll marry, the time will come soon! I'll be late 30s by the time we get started on children but my dad didn't start till 40 so no big!
I was stupid. I had my two girls when I was 19 and I wasn't even close to ready. I didn't even have a job at that point and wouldn't until about three months before they were born. Everything eventually turned out okay though and my fifth child is due in 11 days!
I wouldn't mind another PG-13 "Star Wars" movie. But then again, a PG one wouldn't bother me either. As long as it wasn't a kiddie-fest like the second half of ROTJ.
It's funny, my mom was never really strict with movies and their ratings. An R movie would give her pause (but only sometimes, I saw "Stand By Me" in the theater, and I was--what? 8 or 9?). But I remember years ago, I worked at a video store. And we weren't allowed to put anything on the TV that was over a PG rating. Which is fine. So one day we put on "A New Hope". And this woman comes in with her son (he was like 7 or 8) and she was telling him "don't look at the screen. You're not allowed to watch this." And I remember thinking--what?? The first time I saw "Star Wars" I was five years old. And my dad couldn't *wait* to introduce it to me. I then watched it at least once a day for the next several months. Besides sparking a life-long obsession with these films, I think I turned out pretty okay. And any of my deficiencies certainly couldn't be attributed to watching a few storm troopers get shot down. I don't know. I mean, I wouldn't let my kid watch "American Psycho"or something like that, but "Star Wars"? The toys alone are worth letting your kid in on the fun.
That's almost exactly what I want to see.
Ewoks > Gungans, at at least... I hope we could agree about that.
Giant tree village FTW!
Jar Jar is my favorite part of TPM(an otherwise disappointing movie for me) but, yes, I do still prefer ewoks.
Now that's a rare opinion.
