Warner Bros. confirms PG-13 rating for Goblet of Fire
by Adam Kane, Wizard News Entertainment Corespondent
According to several Harry Potter fan web sites, Warner Bros. has confirmed that the MPAA, the Motion Picture Association of America which rates films in the US, has given the next Harry Potter movie, Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire, a PG-13 rating, for sequences of fantasy violence and frightening images.
All three previous Harry Potter movies had been awarded PG ratings in America.
The American PG rating means that parental guidance is suggested, but the PG-13 signifies that parents are strongly cautioned, and that some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
The film has not been rated yet in the UK. CBBC Newsround reports that Warner Bros. says that the final decision about what rating the film would be in the UK wouldn't be made until it had been seen by film censors.
Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire is scheduled to be released in theatres on November 18 in the US, the UK and Canada.
