Andor's Official Rating Confirmed and Parents' Guide Explored
**Warning – Spoilers ahead for Andor**
Star Wars entries have mostly been kid-friendly when it comes to violence and mature themes. We confirm Andor’s age rating and discuss the parents’ guide to assure the content is suitable for younger audiences.
Andor’s premiere gave viewers three episodes to binge and brought Cassian back into the spotlight while he searched for his sister. After becoming a wanted man, Cassian had to flee Ferrix and the authorities, which is where Luthen came in and alluded to the start of the Rebellion.
Created by Tony Gilroy for Disney Plus, Andor is a prequel series to Star Wars spin-off Rogue One, returning Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Set five years before the Jyn Erso-led project, Andor also stars Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, and Fiona Shaw.
Andor’s Official Rating
Andor’s official age rating in the US is TV-14 for violence and language, matching the rating of previous Star Wars shows The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett, and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Andor’s rating in the UK, however, is a 12+, stating that the content is suitable for kids 12 years old and over.
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story also carried a 12A certificate when it was released back in 2016, which means Andor’s content will likely continue to be in line with the movie’s.
Andor Parents’ Guide
The main difference for parents to be wary of is the suggestive content featured in Episodes 1 and 2, where the prequel’s opening takes place in a brothel, and Episode 2 features a suggestive sexual scene between a couple.
Outwith the suggestive content, the first three episodes of Andor feature suspenseful violence with a touch more intensity than say The Force Awakens, including the use of explosives, scenes of scratched faces with blood, and the use of guns.
Bad language including “b*stards,”, “sh*t,” and “*ss” are used and alcohol consumption is shown during multiple scenes.
