It becomes the second movie in the series to receive a PG-13 rating following 2005’s ‘Star Wars Episode III: Revenge f the Sith’, reported Aceshowbiz. It has got the rating for content described as ‘sci-fi action violence.’ PG-13 is the default rating for mainstream blockbusters including this year’s ‘Jurassic World’, ‘Avengers: Age of Ultron’, ‘Furious 7’ and ‘The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Part 2’. All other ‘Star Wars’ films were released in PG ratings as the PG-13 rating was only created in 1984, after the release of the original ‘Star Wars’ trilogy. ‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’, starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill, Carrie Fisher, John Boyega, Daisy Ridley and Oscar Isaac opens in US theatres on December 18.

From the United States, to Russia, China and Saudi Arabia, the franchise has spawned a remarkable global fan base arguably unheard of in movie history and spanning several generations. “The fans have really played an incredibly major role in keeping Star Wars alive and growing,” said Sansweet, an avid fan and former Wall Street Journal reporter who joined Lucasfilm in 1996 as head of fan relations and content management. He added: “It is quite extraordinary these merchandising firms are jumping the gun and flooding the toy stores with toys for a film kids might not be able to see.” Fred Isaac, of consumer website www.aspokesmansaid.com, said: “Too many Hollywood movies about kids’ heroes are being made too violent for their young fans.” My nine-year-old son talks of nothing but Star Wars. Now aged 70, Sansweet retired in 2011 and now runs Rancho Obi-Wan, a non-profit museum north of San Francisco that houses the world’s largest collection of Star Wars memorabilia.

But because I’m one of the few parents I know holding out against showing my child 12 or 12A movies, I now have to tell him he can’t watch your film. In a large rollaway chest, Bender also keeps the cherished stormtrooper costumes that he wears as a member of the “501st Legion,” an international fan-based Star Wars costuming group.

Created in 1997, the group has grown into a worldwide phenomenon with 8,000 members who take part in charity events and other affairs related to the film. She even had a Star Wars-themed wedding last year at which her father dressed as Darth Vader, stormtroopers acted as ushers and the two flower girls dressed as Princess Leia. The wedding cake was topped with two Star Wars creatures—Wampa (a snow beast) and Tauntaun (a snow lizard). “I wanted something that would represent who we are as a couple,” Landa said of her wedding. “But we also didn’t want to alienate guests who weren’t necessarily fans.” Sporting Darth Vader tights and a Star Wars top, she said she realizes her passion may be considered over the top by some but is comforted by the fact that she is by no means unique. Like Bender, she has bought advance tickets to see the movie several times and hopes her five-month old daughter Lucia will eventually share the same passion. “Pretty much everyday is related to something Star Wars,” Landa said. “Whether I’m using a stormtrooper spatula to make my breakfast, to listening to the music or to tweeting and sharing the latest trailer for ‘The Force Awakens’, to making jewelery.
