Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom Rating Confirmed

After years of being in the works, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is finally on the way. The DC sequel debuted its first trailer last month, showcasing what fans can expect from the latest (and possibly final) adventure for Jason Momoa‘s Arthur Curry / Aquaman. As Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom‘s December release date looms closer, details regarding the film are continuing to come to light — including its official rating.

According to the MPA’s Film Ratings website, Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom is “rated PG-13 for sci-fi violence and some language.” That is relatively par for the course with theatrical cuts of DCEU movies thus far, outside of Birds of Prey (and the Fantabulous Emancipation of One Harley Quinn) and The Suicide Squad.

Will There Be an Aquaman 3?

At the moment, a third Aquaman film has yet to be greenlit by DC, especially amid the DC Studios changes led by James Gunn and Peter Safran. Still, Wan has indicated that The Lost Kingdom functions as a standalone story, regardless of whatever canon it falls into at the end of the day.

“Well, Aquaman – even the first film – has always been a very standalone film,” Wan told earlier this year. “That was always our approach: that it kind of lives in its own world, and that’s kind of how we’ve approached The Lost Kingdom as well. You know, people love Jason Momoa; people love him playing this role; and people love the action visuals of this space and this world. And that’s what we’re doing: we’re taking it to the next level and we are still expanding – and just any fans of Aquaman the character, that love Black Manta, this is the next level and I’m very excited to finally put out there to show them what we’ve been working on all these years.”

What Is Aquaman and the Lost Kingdom About?
