What Is The Book of Boba Fett Rated?
Book of Boba Fett is rated TV-14, which is the same rating given to The Mandalorian.
It’s safe to say the level of violence and gore should be on par with that series.
Is The Book of Boba Fett Too Scary For Kids?
Please note: this initial parents guide for The Book of Boba Fett is based on the first episode only.
We’ll update you with more information to help you decide if The Book of Boba Fett is too scary for your kids as the series goes on.
There’s no denying it: Boba Fett is one of the more intimidating characters in the Star Wars Universe.
He’s a clone, a bounty hunter, and has some really cool armor and weapons.
And now he has his own series.
This parent tv review will help you decide what ages are appropriate to watch The Book Of Boba Fett based on how scary the show is.
Parents Guide: Book of Boba Fett Violence
This is what parents will mostly be concerned with for kids.
Bounty Hunting and Crime-Lording is a violent profession, so you can expect many instances of attacks, fights, explosions, and deaths to occur in The Book of Boba Fett.
So far, it is similar to previous Star Wars movies and shows.
There’s hand-to-hand battles, swords, blasters, and chains are all used as weapons (think back to how Jabba was killed in Return of the Jedi).
One would-be assassin is disintegrated with a direct hit which may be shocking for kids.
Electro shocks are also used during battle scenes.
Blood and Gore: Is Book of Boba Fett Too Scary For Kids?
There is little to no gore occurring in the first episode.
The main “ewww” parts happen when we see (finally!) the inside of a Sarlacc and how Boba Fett managed to escape.
It’s not particularly bloody or gory but it will certainly make you squirm to think about being trapped in there for over a 1000 years!
Deaths do occur on screen but we’d say they are similar to most deaths in the Star Wars saga: bloodless.
One character is purposefully pushed off a high building to their presumed death. We do not see them land, but we know the fall is a big one.
There are some new and old creatures showing up from the Star Wars universe.
One in particular offers a few jump scares when he’s introduced and could be scary for some kids.
This happens during a flashback dream sequence at the end of the first episode, but it’s safe to assume there will be more of these types of moments for your children to experience.
