Star Wars A U film should be suitable for audiences aged four years and over, although it is impossible to predict what might upset any particular child.

U films should be set within a positive framework and should offer reassuring counterbalances to any violence, threat or horror. If a work is particularly suitable for pre-school children, this will be indicated in the ratings info.

As cinemas reopen the big new films will be a while before they are released, so studios are re-releasing classic movies, and on its 40th Anniversary the BBFC have reclassified the movie a PG.

The movie, released in 1980, has been a U age rating, even on its many home entertainment released and cinema rereleased.

As guidelines the BBFC uses have changed the British classification body has reclassified the movie a PG.

PG Certificate

At the moment Star Wars and Star Wars: The Return Of The Jedi are still U rated, but to be fair Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back has always been the darkest movie, and the nightmare cave scene and the hand cutting off scene MAY justify the new rating.

The movie is rereleased when UK cinemas reopen on July 4th, and as the 27 year old Jurassic park is currently the top movie in America who knows what will happen to the UK box office in a couple of weeks.
