The designation tells parents that some scenes might be inappropriate for those younger than 13 but doesn’t restrict attendance. The film comes out Dec. 18.

“Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith” also got a PG-13 rating in 2005. The five other films in the series were rated PG, but the first three were released before PG-13 was created in 1984.
