The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is dropping this week. Will it be something to watch with the kids around? What is the age rating for the series?
After years of it being in development, The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power is dropping this week. The first two episodes will be available on Thursday night, while the rest of the episodes will air Thursdays/Fridays (depending on time zone) weekly.
Will you need to wait until the kids have gone to bed to be able to watch the episodes? It’s important to look at the age rating for everything that comes to streaming platforms to make sure the content is meant to be suitable for kids or not.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power age rating
With the movies holding a PG-13 rating, it’s natural to expect the show to have a similar rating. Why would the show be created for an older audience? Well, we wanted to make sure and look at the official Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power age rating.
The good news is that the series is suitable for the same audience as the movie. The series’s age rating is set as TV-14. This means it’s suitable for 14 and up, although younger children may be comfortable with it.
When the series was originally created, the plan was to make it suitable for children. After all, this is all set in a fantasy world, and children love fantasy shows. There are elves, hobbits, and more.
There are going to be some battles and violence. The story is also going to cover some social topics but with different species of creatures instead of races of people. We’ll also get a bit of nudity and language here and there. The levels are nothing like The Boys or Game of Thrones and more like The Wheel of Time.
The Lord of the Rings: The Rings of Power premieres on Thursday, Sept. 1 on Prime Video in North America.
