In a cantina an alien woman lounges seductively in the arms of a massive brute.

Science fiction violence including scenes in which the following are depicted.

Characters duel with lightsabers with the intent of killing each other.

A man uses a lightsaber to suddenly stab another man through the torso and holds the weapon's blade in place for a couple of seconds as it scorches the man's clothing and innards.

A village is wiped out by uniformed combatants.

A defenseless old man preaching peace is mercilessly struck down and murdered.

A uniformed combatant is shot and, as he dies, he leaves a bloody handprint on the helmet of one of his team members.

Several characters are held against their will and telepathically tortured to the point of extreme pain or exhaustion.

Numerous uniformed combatants are shot and fall down throughout the film. The presumption is that they are dead.

Several characters are grasped and eaten by multi-tentacled beasts.

Several fights or melee assaults occur where characters are struck in the face, body and legs.

There are numerous scenes with chases or dogfights between the spacecrafts of the Resistance and the First Order.

Planets are obliterated by the Starkiller Base, and the inhabitants see the weapon's gigantic energy projectiles headed straight for them.

Several buildings are destroyed, either by exploding or by being fired upon.

In the vein of the original trilogy, there is some mild profanity.

Two uses of "hell" and one use of "damn".

Some characters in a cantina may be imbibing alcohol and may be smoking but it is not overt.

Confirmed MPAA rating: PG-13 for sci-fi action violence.

Most of the violent or otherwise action scenes are intense but not frightening.

The scenes with the rathars, tentacled beasts having man-sized gullets, may be frightening to younger viewers.

Snoke's voice and perceived size may be frightening to younger viewers. Similar is the case with Kylo Ren whenever he is wearing is masked helmet. Both of these villains' demeanors are somewhat frightening.

One of the characters hears the cries of a small child and follows the cries down to a basement. In the basement, the character encounters an object and, when the object is touched, the character has a harrowing flashback to their abandonment as a child and a premonition of danger approaching the character in the future.

Rated PG-13 for sci-fi action violence
