Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Most of the violent or otherwise action scenes are intense but not frightening. Lots of death occur, but blood amount is minimal.
  • The scenes with the rathars, tentacled beasts having man-sized gullets, may be frightening to younger viewers, especially because they eat several men alive.
  • 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.
  • The appearance of several alien characters may be frightening to younger audience.
  • 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.
