‘Star Wars’: All the movies ranked from worst to best

Star Wars: The Force Awakens – what we learned from the Thanksgiving trailer.

It becomes the second movie in the series to receive a PG-13 rating following 2005’s “Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith”, reported Aceshowbiz. But it seems Disney has a few final tricks up its sleeve to build hype ahead of the movie’s 17 December release date in the UK and debut in the US a day later.

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”. A final trailer has been released to celebrate Thanksgiving, while Entertainment Weekly has posted a video revealing some of new droid BB-8’s secrets. 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.

Has the film-maker completely thrown out Star Wars creator George Lucas’s famous “rule of two”, whereby only a pair of dark Jedi types ever exist at one time? And if so, why is Ren still considered scary enough that he gets John Williams’s unmistakable Death March theme, which always accompanied Vader’s appearance in the original trilogy? The disillusioned stormtrooper turned lightsaber-wielding Resistance hero played by John Boyega continues to be one of the most enigmatic figures in The Force Awakens.

Previously, it seemed likely he turned away from the dark side as a reaction to the indoctrination we know all First Order troops receive, which teaches them that Mark Hamill’s Luke Skywalker was a naughty Jedi who brought down a benevolent Empire. It can’t be Kylo Ren’s ability to use the Force to control people, nor the existence of the Death Star-like Starkiller Base, because running from either would surely be a pretty pointless exercise.

Lucas and fans have debated for decades whether the sardonic space scoundrel was originally intended to shoot bounty hunter Greedo only after the alien fired his blaster first in the Mos Eisley Cantina in 1977’s saga opener A New Hope, but Abrams clearly has no such qualms about showing the elder Solo as a quick-on-the-draw kind of guy. Entertainment Weekly, which has had the inside line on Abrams’ film, has posted an intriguing look at the perky orange-and-white ball droid, which we believe begins the movie as an aide to X-Wing pilot Poe Dameron, but has been seen in the company of Daisy Ridley’s Rey, and even on board the Millennium Falcon, in trailers and TV spots. In a new video, the magazine’s reporter Anthony Breznican suggests BB-8 is “kind-of like a Swiss army knife … a cute Swiss army knife, but one, it’s creators say, should not completely be trusted”. The animatronic robot used to shoot the film features a number of panels that open up to reveal tasers, grappling hooks and other useful devices, and these are not the droid’s only secrets.
