Since the beliefs that parents want to instill in their children can vary greatly, we ask that, instead of adding your personal opinions about what is right or wrong in a film, you use this feature to help parents make informed viewing decisions by describing the facts of relevant scenes in the title for each one of the different categories: Sex and Nudity, Violence and Gore, Profanity, Alcohol/Drugs/Smoking, and Frightening/Intense Scenes.

Sex & Nudity

Talk about conception—who fathered a particular character in the film.

Two women wearing clingy tops paw and fawn over the pod-racer Sebulba.

Violence & Gore

The violence is constant but mostly very mild.

At the instruction of a villain, a ship is fired upon by laser turrets and explodes with two pilots, a man and a woman, inside.

A sea monster is violently torn in half by a larger sea monster. Later another sea creature bites a gar-like creature's tail.

Jabba the Hutt bites a small creature's head off and spits it on a gong. Blood spatters.

Using rifles with scopes, some spectating Sand People fire upon the pod-racers. One racer's vehicle is damaged by a bullet and destabilizes, leading to the operator's injury or death.

Uniformed combatants are killed in aerial and terrestrial combat with robots, but no blood is evident. Several bodies are shown lying dead on the ground while pilots are shown exploding in their starfighter crafts the moment the craft is hit by laser fire.

Two men battle a third man in a prolonged and intense "laser sword"/lightsaber duel. There are also punches and kicks at each other from both sides.

A man is stabbed in the middle of his torso. He gasps in pain and falls to the ground, and can be briefly seen having a hole through his back.

A man slices another man in two, and both halves of him can be clearly seen when he falls down a shaft. Blood powder sprays out, but the actual cut is not shown: fairly graphic.

A space station involved in an enormous battle explodes, killing hundreds of sentient beings aboard it.

Many robots are sliced in half, dismembered, stabbed, decapitated, slashed or gunned down.

Profanity

Very mild scatological references. (In both cases, the actual words are spoken in an alien dialect, but the inflection is obvious.)

None.

Darth Maul's bizarre appearance may be considered frightening for some.

Many racers, who are strange aliens, are killed or injured in the pod-race sequence. It is not bloody or graphic but very intense. A child participates in the dangerous contest but is somewhat calm and collected about several dreadful encounters. Since he faces the risk of meeting the same fate as other racers, the scenes are thrilling.

The scene where Qui-Gon is stabbed is very shocking and intense, along with the skewering of Darth Maul being split in half by Obi-Wan's "laser sword"/lightsaber.

The battle near the end of the film is intense but with minimal to no blood or gore at all. Only several dead bodies are visible. A child, only slightly nevous, is caught up in the violence as well, being fired upon by enemy forces and, through using his starfighter craft, firing upon them accordingly.

Darth Sidious's appearance and his voice may frighten young children.

A large space station explodes killing many people inside: non-graphic.

The lightsaber duel of Qui-Gon and Obi-Wan against Darth Maul is quite menacing and rather intense.
