‘Up’ Receives a PG Rating [UPDATE]

Briefly: Press material released by Disney indicates that Up has received a PG rating from the MPAA.

Although not listed on the MPAA website yet, this would mark the second Pixar film to receive such a rating, the first being The Incredibles in 2004. All other Pixar films to date have received a G rating from the MPAA

Update: "Some Peril and Action" is cited as the reason for the rating on Up’s official website. If you’ve read some descriptions of the movie, this is no surprise.

Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Leave a comment below.

    Hmmm..i could see the adventure scenes making Up PG. It might be rather tense and that would be the problem.

    No, the blood is the reason…yes there’s blood…

  3. Bryko614 says:

    I can see why…The action sequences involve some violence, there’s some blood, serious weapons are used, and it deals with some mature themes.

    Seems fitting, what with the blood, (spoiler darts spoiler), action sequences, and other elements involved in the film.

    This is ridiculous. Wall-e, Nemo, and Ratatouille were much more deserving of PG ratings than Up. Up is the most “G” film Pixar’s made to date! The ratings board is full of it.

    What a shame. It’s going to limit their audience, and that’s not good.

    An R-rating is an audience limiter. A PG is nothing. Though there are some who will probably look at the previews and think, ‘what, guidance for being too cute?’

    I know some parents have no issues dropping off the young kids to see a PG or PG-13 film by themselves. Like ‘Coraline.’ The film looked nice and sweet, but was definitely something a bit deeper than most parents I think would realize.

    Where’s that picture of Kevin from. A new tv spot or something?

    In what possible way? Maybe Ratatouille for the shotgun sequence, but wowzers, people sure are touchy these days.

    Don’t turn on the TV or you might see some boobies! Most of advertising is more explicit than anything Pixar has ever done. Wow. Just wow.

    TAMATER: That picture of Kevin is probably from one of the Inside Up featurettes. 🙂

    they give Up a PG rating but not for wall.e ( that movie was the darkest pixar movie ever!)

    It may be due to the sexual orientation issues brought up in the film.
