Why Is The New World Rated PG-13?


Attempting to present this era in more serious light, this live-action re-telling of the Pocahontas story has many scenes of battles between Colonials and indigenous people. Although not graphic, many men are clubbed, stabbed, and beaten, and some are shot. Houses are burned and characters are shown in perilous situations. Starving settlers are depicted and a cannibalistic act is discussed. Sexual content is limited to indigenous people in skin-revealing costumes. These characters are also seen smoking traditional pipes. No profanity was heard.
