Cars 2 has received a "G" rating by the Motion Picture Association of America.
This comes as a huge surprise, to me at least. From what we were shown at the Pixar event earlier this year, there were some scenes that were intense enough to warrant a higher rating.
Don’t get me wrong, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a "G" rating, in fact it should work in Pixar’s favor. Let’s be honest, the franchise is extremely popular with the younger set and they’d be devastated if they were alienated— by their parents, of course. In any case, the comedy and action sequences shown so far should play well with any age group.
Note: Besides The Incredibles and Up, every Pixar film has received a G rating from the MPAA. Maybe I shouldn’t be so surprised by Cars 2.
Cars 2 opens in the US on June 24.
From available footage, do you think C2 should have obtained a "G" rating?
