With Pixar’s dedication to create films for the entire family (as John Lasseter has personally emphasized), the studio has always received G and PG ratings for its films. Box Office Mojo is now reporting that the upcoming Cars 2 continues that streak, as the film has earned a G rating from the MPAA (Motion Picture Association of America). Given Pixar’s history, this news will surprise no one. However, some parents had been wondering whether the film franchise would take a turn and focus on weapons and violence due to footage seen in teasers and trailers. The G rating makes it official – Cars 2 will be a film for all ages.
While Pixar has hovered around G ratings throughout much of its existence, The Incredibles (2004) received a PG rating due to the film’s “action violence.” With Cars 2′s turn to the spy genre, some thought it may also be stamped with a PG rating, but now there is no question that the spy aspects of the storyline will remain accessible to all.
The G-rated Cars 2 is due for release on June 24, which is now less than 1 month away!
