Revenge of the Sith Revenge of the Sith MPAA Rating
After a few rumors about what the finalized MPAA rating would be for Star Wars Revenge of the Sith, we finally have an answer. But first, lets take a look at the early predictions.

Revenge of the Sith MPAA Rating

When the news was released that Revenge of the Sith, due to upped action and imagery, may have a higher rating [PG-13] than ALL other Star Wars films, worries began to rise. Would Lucas allow this rating to stand [for some reason he loves the kids] or would he have Revenge of the Sith hit the more-editing room [he also loves to slice] and edit the '13' right out of the rating? Obviously, people feared Lucas doing this; but then further news came...

On the date of April 1, it was announced that Star Wars Revenge of the Sith would be rated a startling 'R'. While many fans raised their arms in praise [this film has got meat!], fear began to skyrocket again as it seemed that Lucas would definitely hit the editing room to mellow the film out. Well, it turned out that the announcement was just a mean April Fools joke that was able to turn some heads [just like my report of Lucas doing Episodes VII-IX.. SORRY].

[rating below]

Well, thanks to AintitCool, we finally have a solid rating for Revenge of the Sith. And, as suspected, this last Star Wars film will also be the first film in the saga to sport a PG-13 rating for “sci-fi violence and some intense images.” And, even better news, Lucas will do nothing to try to lower the rating.
