‘Star Wars: The Force Awakens’ has been awarded a 12A certificate by the BBFC.

The BBFC have said that the film contains “moderate violence” and “threat” across its 135-minute running time.

“There are frequent scenes of moderate violence, including use of blasters and lightsabers, and dogfights between spaceships. Sight of blood and injury detail is limited and brief,” the ruling states.

“Occasional scenes of moderate threat include characters being interrogated using ‘the Force’, which it is implied causes them pain, and characters being held at lightsaber-point. There is infrequent use of very mild bad language (‘hell’, ‘damn’).”

I’d put real money on it being Han Solo that indulges in most of those colourful metaphors.

The Force Awakens is the second Star Wars film to receive the 12A rating in the UK, following ‘Revenge of the Sith.’
