Godzilla: King of the Monsters might still be a year away from its release date, but it looks like the Godzilla sequel already has an official rating from the Motion Picture Association of America. While it seems like children under thirteen aren’t allowed to see Godzilla: King of the Monsters, it looks like the film is generally going to be a family-friendly film.

According to a report by Bloody Disgusting, Godzilla: King of the Monsters has just been given a PG-13 rating by the Motion Picture Association of America mostly because the film has “sequences of monster action violence and destruction” as well as concerns of “language” sprinkled throughout the film.

While it doesn’t seem quite surprising to see Godzilla: King of Monsters gaining a PG-13 rating, seeing the film gain a rating this early is a bit unusual. After all, the Godzilla movie isn’t set for release till May next year, so this means that the film could already have its final cut with director Mike Dougherty. That means we’ll probably get to see more trailers make their way online soon.

Here’s the full film synopsis of Godzilla: King of Monsters. Check it out down here:

"The new story follows the heroic efforts of the cryptozoological agency Monarch as its members face off against a battery of god-sized monsters, including the mighty Godzilla, who collides with Mothra, Rodan, and his ultimate nemesis, the three-headed King Ghidorah. When these ancient superspecies, thought to be mere myths, rise again, they all vie for supremacy, leaving humanity's very existence hanging in the balance."

Godzilla: King of Monsters is set to hit cinemas May 31, 2019.
