‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ given PG-13 rating.

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. This photo provided by Disney shows Daisey Ridley as Rey, left, and John Boyega as Finn, in a scene from the new film, “Star Wars: Episode VII – The Force Awakens,” directed by J.J.

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”. In an interview with Glamour magazine, Ridley said: ‘I haven’t seen the film yet – I kinda want to, and I kinda don’t – Steven Spielberg’s seen it three times, as he told me when I met him!’ Good news for Star Wars fans as perhaps we can assume that the Jaws filmmaker is keen on the movie. Spielberg, famously, was one of the only people who saw a rough cut of the original Star Wars (1977) and told its creator George Lucas that it would be a hit.

Ridley, who plays the mysterious Rey in The Force Awakens, also told Glamour in the January 2016 issue (out next week) that Abrams was less than thrilled with her initial performance whilst filming, she said: ‘He probably doesn’t remember telling me that my performance was wooden. I thought I was gonna cry, I couldn’t breathe.’ In other Episode VII news, JJ Abrams has been speaking to Empire magazine about another mysterious character, Supreme Leader Snoke. All three are among the legions of hardcore fans the space epic has generated over the years and who are champing at the bit in anticipation of the saga’s latest installment—”Star Wars: The Force Awakens”—that hits screens in December. 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.

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. 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.
