Rating & Content Info
Why is Eragon rated PG? Eragon is rated PG by the MPAA for fantasy violence, intense battle sequences and some frightening images.
Aimed at teens, this fantasy tale steers clear of language concerns, sexual content and drug/alcohol use. However, the script includes a bounty of sword fighting, stabbings and hand-to-hand struggles. Men are impaled, shot in the head, tortured, crushed by falling rocks and burned by dragon fire. The king’s sorcerer also employs torture and black magic to hunt down the rebels.
