'The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1' Will Be Rated ...

Sep 21, 2011

Much has been discussed about The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1, and how the book features some pretty birtharific scenes that are bloody and nasty, as well as a little roll around in the sheets between Bella (Kristen Stewart) and Edward (Robert Pattinson), who embark on a sensual-filled honeymoon during the first part of this two-part Twilight finale. Fans have said that in order to do the book justice, the film would have to be rated R. Summit, meanwhile, has said there's no way in sparkly vampire hell we're gonna shoot this thing for an R rating. As such, the ruling has come down and, yes, the MPAA has given The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn, Part 1 a PG-13 rating.

What's the PG-13 for, exactly? Well, it's based on "disturbing images, violence, sexuality/partial nudity and some thematic elements." Since there's nothing about an "insane birthing sequence," we take that to mean they were able to film that particular part in a tasteful enough manner (though we bet you hardcore fans are hoping for the uncut version on Blu-ray).

Do you think they'll still be able to deliver a satisfying finale with the PG-13 rating?
