Is Obi-Wan Safe For Kids? Sex and Nudity

There is no sex or nudity in the first two episodes.

From a sex standpoint, Obi-Wan Kenobi is safe for kids and kid-friendly.

Violence and Gore: Is Obi-Wan Kenobi Too Scary For Kids?

Star Wars movies and shows tend to be bloodless or show very little.

That seems to be following the course in the Obi-Wan series.

There are the typical fight scenes and perilous situations (blasters vs lightsabers, explosions, hand-to-hand combat) that could be concerning to some children. Especially the opening scene which features Order 66 being carried out.

For those that aren’t up to date, this is when the Jedi Order is massacred, including the Younglings (children) who are in the Jedi Temple (school) at the time.

This scene, right now, could be terribly impactful on young children in light of the most recent school shooting.

There’s also a child kidnapping and deaths shown on screen.

Obi-Wan Kenobi Series Age Rating: What Ages Can Really Watch This One?

The series is rated TV-14 mostly for mature content and violence.

Can kids under 10 watch Obi-Wan Kenobi?

As always: you know your child best.

We think kids as young as 9 can handle this series, at least what we’ve seen so far, given that they have been exposed to Star Wars or similar movies/shows in the past.

So far, Obi-Wan Kenobi doesn’t seem as scary as The Mandalorian in some ways. That could change – and we expect it will. You know there’s always a BIG MOMENT ™ that pops up around episode 4-5 that could change this age rating.

Star Wars, and more Vader in particular, can get intense.

If you can screen in advance for future episodes before sitting down with young kids, we suggest doing just that.
