Why Is Star Wars- The Clone Wars Rated PG?

Nearly constant depictions of gunfire, cannons and other heavy-duty artillery use give this film a video game feel without the benefit of a controller. Though the body count grows exponentially throughout the conflicts, minimal gore or graphic injuries are seen. A man’s head rolls down the ramp of a spaceship after it is decapitated. Sprawling bodies of dead or dying soldiers are strewn across numerous battlefields. Political wrangling, treachery and subterfuge are employed by various characters in order to discredit their enemies. Female characters wear minimal or body-hugging clothing. Some are seen dancing in the background of several shots. A young child is gravely ill and near death. A single mild curse word is included. One character smokes an unknown substance.
