My question is regarding the rating. Despite the frequent and ridiculous overgeneralization that the prequels were too kid friendly (or overall any more kid-friendly than the first series), and full of JJ Binks characters, Sith was actually by far the darkest, least kid-friendly movie of all (Anakin is seen getting ready to butcher small children with his light saber for cryin' out loud!). Sith was the only movie of the whole series that was PG-13 (even if they had that rating when the first series came out, I don't think any of the three would have gotten it; Empire was borderline, but was not as dark as Sith in any case). So the question is, will Episode 7 be PG-13? Pro: 1) With all of the flack over JJ Binks and such, one would think that they would steer clear of that, and perhaps move toward a slightly more serious movie that will lend credibility to the new series. 2) The live action TV series was alleged by Lucas and his Rick McCallum to be much more serious and non-family friendly than anything before it (like "Deadwood in space" per Rick McCallum), so maybe he is moving in that direction with the stories he submitted to Kathleen. 3) Other Disney movies are PG-13 (e.g. the Marvel comic series). Con: 1) You can sell more action figues and kiddie lunch pales with lots of fuzzy Ewok and JJ Binks-type characters. 2) It may be perceived that you can reach a wider audience and hook the newest generation of kids with PG or (gasp!) G rated Star Wars. 3) Disney is Disney, most of their movies are G or PG. My Prediction: I'm climbing way out on and limb here, predicting PG-13. Wishful thinking? Perhaps. Desire-based belief? Maybe. I think it is a fair possibility though.
