A new report is online today, stating a rating has been given to the upcoming Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. Rope of Silicon is reporting that the sixth Harry Potter film has been rated PG for

"scary images, some violence, language and mild sensuality." Update: This has now appeared on the MPAA website, with a definite PG rating.

As readers will recall GoF and OotP have both been rated PG-13, with PoA the last PG rated movie in the series.

Thanks to Rope of Silicon and Kyle

There is so much anger and outrage over something that is very much a rumor and that we have no idea whether or not it is true…

I don’t really mind about the PG thing. As long as the movie is quality, that’s fine. POa was the best movie in my opinion and that was PG. It doesn’t have to be really creppy to be awesome, although the trailers do make it out to be pretty damn creepy in the trailers. Now I will be angry if its a romance comedy. Although, I see where people are coming from, it should be PG- 13. What about the test screeners saying it was more mature, creep.. And the language, I’m intruiged… Maybe they got it wrong…

Yea but the Bathroom scene involves a lot of blood with draco being sliced open and i don’t think that PG is a good rating at all because it has alot of blood and scary scenes and eople should be notified. i know i sound like a law abiding looser but i think that the blood and stuff makes it PG-13 , but it isn’t final so hey, who knows.

As much as I like the films, sometime along the line I hope the books are redone anyway, suitable for a more mature audience than what we’ve seen so far. Maybe a mini series? … Shame Dan and some of the others would be too old for it.

What about the small “Battle of Hogwarts”?! And Bill getting savaged by Greyback! This should definitely be PG-13 with GOF and OotP being rated as that.

this makes me think that the movie is going to suck cause this should be a scary movie and dumbledor dies by murder does not sound like a very happy movie!

I really hope they did not change anything from the book so they could get more people to see the movie. HBP is my favorite book, and I want it to stay dark.

Okay, well now it’s official. It’s up on MPAA’s website.

Its official. Its on the mpaa website. :(

Posted by Nico on January 07, 2009, 05:44 PM report to moderator

i hope not, id rather it be pg-13 because if it isnt it most likely means they are changing the story even more.

Some you all are overreacting. My gosh, get your underwear out of a knot. It’s probably rubbish.
