The Motion Picture Association of America has given "Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" a PG-13 rating for "some sequences of intense action violence and frightening images." It is the third Harry Potter film, after "Goblet of Fire" and "Order of the Phoenix" to have a PG-13 rating.
"Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows: Part 1" will be released on November 19th. Thanks very much to Brent for the tip!
yeah, i really didnt think it was getting a rated-R thing, wb would have cut off a big part of their movie-going demographic (young-ish teenagers) but with a topless hermione kissing and that torture scene in mm will definetly not make it pg, so a hard PG-13 rating is fine with me. bring on the intenseness!! :)
Doesn’t surprise me, and I think it’s good they don’t try and sacrifice parts of the plot for a lower rating.
Well, we’ll have to wait and see how it turns out even with a PG-13 rating, but yeah ;)
I guess that is why they are going to omit Peter Pettigrew’s death – they really couldn’t get a PG13 with someone being strangled to death.
I don’t know… they got away with Ron almost chocking to death in HBP.
I would have been really concerned if it was only rated PG. I fully expected to have Part 2 rated PG-13 but it is a good sign that Part 1 was so rated as well. Here’s a butterbeer toast that both parts are just what they should be!!!
I’m glad that it is PG-13. I was kind of shocked when I went into HBP midnight showing and their were toddlers there. Hopefully this will keep parents from bring their real young ones till they have seen the movie.

Yay ! I am SO glad they are keeping to the storyline and not giving in to a Disneyfied production just for the little ones. This book was not meant for 8 year olds and neither are the films.
I am soo sooo glad this is a pg13 rating!!!! I was very dissapointed when HBP was a pg! YAY for pg13!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
seirously i’m not sure if a 13 years can see someone tortured seriously when i see kid like to have 12 years in cinema and watch a movie with a lot of violence i’m like wtf you should not watch this movie and i do not want to see kid when i’m going to the premiere of harry potter and the deathly hallows
haha I wish it was R for gruesome violence, scenes of death, and rotting woman carcasses filled with giant pythons but ill take this 13 and know that pg13 is a lot more than it used to be
that means they haven’t cut out the scary bits !!!!!! :D:D:D:D
Yay! 43 days left!
It was expected really after the last 2 movies were a PG-13 and DH has more intense scenes.
Just saw this on “Castingcallpro”- a website for actors – Running time for Part 1 is 110 minutes !!!!!!!
PG13 is good with me! ;) In fact, it’s perfect! No annoying little kids and I can still go! Besides, DH is defenly a PG13 or R book so, yeah.
