Well the next installment of Harry Potter is due to release this summer in the midst of summer Blockbuster season. I thought that the books were suppose to get darker as the story progressed, but apparently the film industry doesn't because the new one has only gotten a PG rating. This is really shocking to me and it makes me question if I will like the next one. I hope they don't decide to "lighten" up the series for the remainder of the movies.

At the end of the series I fully expect the movies to have G ratings, and have all the characters holding hands singing ring around the rosie with vuldamore trying to molest them all. Harry Potter should just be burned along with his books.

Oh man that's some harsh words from flames.

I'm not a fan of this PG rating either happy. I think it is defiantly a step away from the dark images that has grown as the series progressed.

Well I don't think any movie with someone being molested can be rated g.

Also I think the movie being of is a effort by Warner Bros. to get a broader audience, trying to reach out more.

Interesting concept there flames, if that's how HP concludes I will personally hand over my bank account to you.

I don't think HP fans have anything to worry about with this PG rating. I doubt that fans will even notice the difference. Maybe they will cut down on the "bloody hell" saying but that's about it. I feel that the decision to get a PG instead of a PG-13 was on to counter the group (particularly moms) out there that have said that they banned harry potter from their house because of the evil witchcraft behind the story. Remember a couple of years ago when this was a huge debate? Was harry potter suitable for children? That was the question. Well this rating will answer that question for moms and others. It's not that difficult to curve a rating, honestly there could have been previous potter films that could have got a PG rating.

Well put DA, I remember when everyone was asking that question. It's amazing how much a simple rating can affect a parents mind.

Very good points made by DA, I hope your right about there not being any difference.

There will be a huge difference in this one. Expect not to see alot of wizardtry and alot less violence, the rating will clearly show in this next one.

The first 3 were all rated PG, last two were PG13. I see no noticable difference in the movies that are PG and the PG13 ones.

In that case it wont be any different. Maybe they are all younger in the first 3.

The first ones were much more light and kid based than the last ones, this PG might be turning me off of this movie.
