It does say 1 or 2 curse words but nothing too over the top. There is a bit of blood on a severed arm for a second which might be a bit scary.

For little kids and all ages

A great story about good vs evil and the force. I watched it as a little child and there is no gore and blood. Mild violence(actually even no violence) and a great story about good vs evil. For all ages!

Might need to cover your kid's eye a few times

Star Wars: A New Hope is the beginning of one of the biggest movie series in the world. However, I disagree with CSM with the 7+ rating. VIOLENCE, SCARINESS, AND GORE - There is are some cutting hand scenes and a bit of blood.
age 11+

One of the best

This is a great movie to show your kids, it's fun and exciting, with fun characters. Parents should be aware that there is a little bit of blood and implied drinking. There is no swearing (unless you are very strict on what a swear word is) and no nsfw. There is one scene where the main characters uncle and Aunt die and you can see there skeletons, so you might want to skip that. Other than that, great movie for family movie night. Make sure to watch the others too!

This movie starts something special and is the first of its kind

In a distant galaxy eons before the creation of the planet known as Earth, vast civilizations have evolved, and ruling the galaxy is an interstellar Empire created from the ruins of an Old Republic that held sway for generations. It is a time of civil war, as solar systems have broken away from the Empire and are waging a war of rebellion. During a recent battle, technical schematics for a gigantic space station, code named the Death Star, have been unearthed by rebel spies, and a young woman who is a dissident member of the Imperial Senate, under the cover of a diplomatic mission to the planet Alderaan, is trying to smuggle these plans to the rebellion. But her spacecraft is attacked by a vast warship of the Empire and seized. The dissident Senator is captured, but the plans for the Death Star are nowhere to be found. While soldiers of the Empire search the nearby planet Tatooine, a series of incidents sweeps up a young desert farmer with dreams of being a fighter pilot in the rebellion, as he winds up with the Death Star plans and also the assistance of an elderly hermit who once served as a warrior of an ancient order whose chosen weapons were powerful energy swords known as light-sabers. The pair recruit a cynical interstellar smuggler and his outsized alien copilot with an ancient freighter heavily modified for combat to help them reach Alderaan, but the planet is obliterated and now the foursome must rescue the young woman held prisoner by the Empire and lead an attack by the rebellion against the Death Star before it can annihilate all hope of restoring freedom to the galaxy.

Great science fiction movie that started one of the biggest movie franchises in the world is a little bit violent, but most kids can handle it.

Great movie franchise starter is a little violent. People are shot with space guns (blasters), An aftermath of a couple fried, A some what bloody aftermath scene of a humanoid alien's arm sliced off leaking blood from the arm on the ground, A man is sliced down with a light saber but turns into air right when it hits him and comes back as a ghost later on. Sex is not really an issue, A man and woman kiss (Their revealed to be brother and sister in a later movie). Swearing is mild, Words like "hell" and "damn" are used. Aliens drink and smoke at a bar Many kids are gonna want to see this movie and it may even change their life a tiny bit in a good way. Great science fiction movie.
