Common Sense Note

Parents need to know that this CGI film is much tamer than the most recent live-action Star Wars movies, but it's still full of non-stop animated action, including weapon use (lightsabers, blasters, etc.) and several urban warfare sequences. The sci-fi settings, computer animation, and bloodless battles somewhat lessen the overall effect, but the level of intensity is high and constant. The plot also involves an alien infant being kidnapped; even though he won't look as cute or vulnerable to audiences as a human baby (he's basically a giant tadpole), younger children may worry about a child -- no matter what their shape or species -- in peril.

Sexual Content

Alien dancing girls perform in tight clothing; some longing glances.

Violence

Constant -- albeit bloodless -- animated science-fiction action, including lightsaber duels and small-arms and artillery fire of energy beams. Much of the violence is perpetrated against robots, but some isn't, including several soldiers in high-tech armor taking fire and falling in battle, with phrases like "Get a medic"" and "Man down!" used to imply the severity of the circumstances. A solider in battle armor is shot through the heart with an energy beam. Some hand-to-hand fighting. Spaceships, clearly staffed by human characters, explode.

Language

Minimal use of "damn."

Social Behavior

Some discussion of "the privilege of teaching." The kidnapping of a crime lord's son figures prominently in the plot. Several references to "gangsters" and "scum." Another character is referred to as an "assassin." An alien infant is exposed to some peril. Some burp-and-belch humor.

Consumerism

Not applicable

Drugs / Tobacco / Alcohol

In an outer-space nightclub, several non-humans drink what are presumably intoxicants; a huge, slug-like alien smokes from a hookah.
