Latest “Harry Potter” Film Receives PG-13 Rating
By Hanako M. Ricks
HollywoodNews.com: The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) has announced that the latest installment in the Harry Potter franchise, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1, will be given a PG-13 rating.
The seventh film, which is the first in a two-part finale to the series, received the rating “for some sequences of intense action violence and frightening images”, according to FilmRatings.com.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows is the third film in the franchise to receive a PG-13 rating; Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire and Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix have previously received this rating, due to the darker content in the films. Speculation is now up as to whether the second part of Deathly Hallows will receive the same rating, or if the anticipated events will be enough to garner the franchise its first ever R rating. Only time will tell.
Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 will be in theaters on November 19.
