Why is Rogue One: A Star Wars Story rated PG-13? Rogue One: A Star Wars Story is rated PG-13 by the MPAA for extended sequences of sci-fi violence and action.

Violence:
-Violent confrontations occur throughout this movie, the main weapon of choice being a fantastical laser-like “blaster”. We see countless deaths, mostly “Storm Troopers”, characters covered in white armor that gives them a non-human appearance. Other characters are killed by stabbing, bombs and various weapons. A nurturing character is shot and brief blood effects are seen. A character is subjected to a torturing that results in brain damage. Hand-to-hand combat is depicted with physical assault. Eccentric and strange alien characters are seen, including one that is mutilated: these depictions may be frightening to young children. Characters steal and disobey commands from authorities, and are in near-constant peril.

Sexual Content:
Characters affectionately hug and kiss.

Profanity:
None noted.

Alcohol / Drug Use:
None noted.
