I've noticed that every Star Wars film that came after AOTC (the clone wars doesn't count) has been rated PG-13. It makes sense for ROTS due to the immolation scene and the increased bloodshed (every duel has a violent end except for yoda v sidious) but It doesn't seem like the disney films are particularly more violent or dark compared to the first two prequels. Looking back on it, TPM has some scenes of intense violence, as Darth Maul is literally cut in half and Qui-Gon is stabbed. AOTC has Anakin beheading Tuskens and then killing more violently offscreen. Geonosians are sliced and diced into bits. The most absolute brutal scene is when Mace kills Jango. As a child I didn't think much of it, but I saw the scene again recently and found myself disturbed by it. It's just such a quick and absolutely cold/ruthless kill by Mace. Why do you think the first two prequels were rated PG, and do you think that would change in today's moviegoing world?
