STAR WARS is a science fiction film, from 1977, about a young man, Luke Skywalker, who sets off on an adventure to rescue the captured Princess Leia from evil forces.

Violence

There is some mild violence, but all in a clear fantasy setting. Most of the violence is theatrical and bloodless, lacking in any strong detail. The strongest examples include sight of a man using a light saber in a bar brawl and slicing off an alien's arm; we briefly see the arm on the floor. There is also the sight of some charred bodies after a family is attacked, and some scuffles and fights with fantasy weapons including ray guns and light sabers. The baddie Darth Vader also grabs subordinates and enemies by the neck, killing them.

The film also includes some explosions and space battle scenes, as spaceships are shot from the sky and hit during a battle sequence.
