12 and up would be best.

I have watched this show since I was 15 years old and now that I am re watching it with my kids, I noticed that there is a few scenes that are not suitable for children under 12. For example in the episode Slaves of The Republic it shows Ahsoka in a revealing outfit that you could almost see her bum! my 8 year old daughter and son asked me why she was wearing that, It was very hard to explain to them at such a young age and I didn't like explaining it to them either. This show is pretty violent too with some brutal deaths such as getting stabbed by a Lightsaber or getting shot, no blood though. This show also had a few minor curse words but nothing too bad. There are some episodes to skip such as slaves of the republic but overall it's a great show to watch with older kids.

An amazing show just not for kids younger than about 9 years old.

The show is a little violent and includes some very mild swear words but other than that its honestly not that bad. I would not say that this show is for younger children because it does include some quite violent scenes and some romance and revealing outfits.
