Star Wars: The Force Awakens is a 2015 USA action Sci-Fi fantasy by JJ Abrams.
Starring Harrison Ford, Mark Hamill and Carrie Fisher. The latest Star Wars film has just been passed 12A uncut by the BBFC for moderate violence, threat .
It is only the 2nd in the series to get a 12 rating after Revenge of the Sith . Previously Attack of the Clones was cut for its cinema release so as to obtain a PG rating.
For comparison in the US, the MPAA similarly rated the film PG-13 for sci-fi action violence.
The distributor has been very late to allow the rating to be published making one wonder how many parents of very young children will have made advance plans or bookings assuming the movie followed the previous general pattern of being PG rated. At least with a 12A they can still go along anyway (at least when accompanied by an adult), but there may be a few children seeing a movie perhaps not quite suitable for them.
