Most Violent Star Wars Movies and TV Shows

Star Wars has been the greatest movie franchise of all time.
A lot of movies were great, though people hated the prequels.

One thing people don't always talk about is the violence.
Some are far more violent than others.
Here's the list of the most violent Star Wars movies and TV shows.

The Top Ten

1 Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith Product Image

This might be why they rate all the newer star wars movies PG-13 too. - myusernameisthis

For me if I were to put them from most violent to least violent it would be like this:

1. Revenge of the Sith (obviously)
2. The Force Awakens
3. The Last Jedi
4. Attack of the Clones
5. Return of the Jedi
6. The Empire Strikes Back
7. A New Hope
8. The Phantom Menace

This movie was incredibly violent, though not like planetary destruction.
There were lots of people being killed, during the Order 66 scene, and that one part which NOBODY shall EVER forget.

After the emotional duel between Anakin Skywalker (named Darth Vader at the time) and Obi Wan on Mustafar, He was burned almost to death in perhaps the most graphic scene of any movie.
The pain he was in was worse than any kind we've ever been in or will ever be in (unless you go to hell).
The worst kind of pain possible.

Well obviously! This one's the most intense of the intense! - darthvadern

2 Star Wars: The Clone Wars Star Wars: The Clone Wars Product Image

Surprised that this showed up under the kids section of netflix back when they showed it on there. - myusernameisthis

I still remember the scene where Grievous crushed the Clone's skull, and the scene where Death Watch burns down a village, or the scene where Maul murders the innocent children...on-screen.

Remember where the wolf mauls Piel and you watch him try to tell the information to Ahsoka as he dies? Or where Pre Vizla has a kid then he stabs her on-screen. Or the scene where The geonosians burn alive? Or the scene where Maul decapitates Vizla, and you watch the body AND the head fall down the stairs?

I remember ventress decapitated a clone and another one was offscreen cut in half by shutting doors

3 Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens Product Image

Best comedy movie of all time. Rey and Kylo Ten are so funny.

No, the only violent scene was Starkiller Base destroying a solar system, everything beyond that was just extremly light-hearted - darthvadern

Star Wars movies have violence, Episode III - Revenge Of The Sith and Episode IV - A New Hope were especially violent, as they contained extremely violent scenes, of which in III, Anakin Skywalker(Darth Vader) got burned nearly to death in Mustafar, which made it so disturbing, and the destruction of Alderaan by the Death Star, which killed 2 billion people, which was very disturbing, though super quick.

But This movie, The Force Awakens, had a scene SO VIOLENT!, that it went past the limits of imagination.

It was when the First Order fired the Starkiller Base towards the New Republic capital planets, and one of them, which was similar to Coruscant, and also had about as many people, got hit, and everyone their died.
That's FAR MORE People than Alderaan and even Earth, combined, and it was also powerful enough to cause destruction to planets even 100000 LIGHT YEARS away.

When Anakin burned, that was one person, and he survived, Everyone on Alderaan and that ...more

4 Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope Product Image

Not that violent apart from Alderaan scene

guy gets his arm cut off and there is blood, though it was cut off by a lightsaber so there shouldn't be blood lol

The original Star Wars movie, retitled Episode IV - A New Hope, after the prequels were made, was extremely violent in one part when the Death Star destroyed Alderaan, and killed 2 billion people.

Alderaan had 2 billion people, Earth has almost 7.5 billion people, the New Republic capital planet in Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens had about 1 trillion people at most(like that of Coruscant).

Though the destruction of Alderaan was super quick, it could've been missed with one blink.

5 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones Product Image

This might have the awful romance that was anything but violent, but the battle of Geonosis was quite savage - darthvadern

This was kind of a bit more violent, than the average Star Wars movie.
There were lots of deaths and stabbings.

The 3 most violent parts were when the ship at the beginning exploded, killing an innocent woman, Anakin killing the Tusken Raiders that killed his mom, and the Battle of Geonosis.

6 Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace Product Image

This is in my opinion the 2nd least violent star wars movie below that other one... we don't talk about it... - myusernameisthis

This is the least violent out of the prequels. Pretty much the only violent part was when Maul got cut in half and Qui-Gon stabbed.

This movie had some pretty good violence, like the destruction of people on board ships, and the duel on Naboo, with violent aftermaths, like Qui Gon Jinn and Darth Maul getting stabbed (blood showed up).

Quite violent movie - darthvadern

7 Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi Product Image

The final battles were very violent, and even the beginning was quite violent like the sarlaac pit! - darthvadern

The average Star Wars movie, which was like you'd expect, violence in scenes, like with every Star Wars movie.

There were shootings and monsters eating people, like the Rancor.
And as lots of spaceships, and the 3nd Death Star, were shooting, and lots of people died.
Emperor Palpatine electrocuted Luke Skywalker near death, though Darth Vader (back to being Anakin Skywalker) saved Luke from death, though Anakin died shortly after.

8 Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Rogue One: A Star Wars Story Product Image

Well, every main character dies so of course it's violent - darthvadern

I think this one should get the number one spot (every single death scene is in your face) and revenge of the sith should get the second spot

9 Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Star Wars: Episode V - The Empire Strikes Back Product Image

To be fair it was the least violent of the OT, I mean there's nothing super intense in this one like the Alderann scene from the fourth movie or the sarlaac pit and battle for endor from the sixth one - darthvadern

This was the greatest Star Wars movie ever (especially in storyline and twists), and how to think of violence, just shootings, and the one scene where Han Solo (killed by Kylo Ren/Ben Solo in TFA) was frozen in carbonite.

And not to forget when Darth Vader cut off Luke's hand before telling him he's his father.

10 Star Wars Rebels Star Wars Rebels is an American 3D CGI animated television series produced by Lucasfilm Animation. Set fourteen years after Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith and five years before Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope, Rebels takes place during an era when the Galactic Empire is securing ...read more.

pretty tame compared to Clone wars - myusernameisthis

The only Star Wars T.V. show on now, has expected violent scenes.

Like shootings and ships crashing and exploding.

Yet what about that one part where the crew went through the Malestrom to find Lirasan.
(Which shocked and nearly paralyzed everyone and even caused seizures).

The Contenders

11 The Star Wars Holiday Special The Star Wars Holiday Special Product Image

Lololololl...this is a pile of garbage and not violent...unless you consider looking at a 2 hour long boring extremely poorly made, creepy movie violent.

So violent oh wow :I - myusernameisthis

You’re kidding me right?

12 Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion Star Wars Rebels: Spark of Rebellion Product Image

Probably one of, if not the least violent Star Wars movies.
Felt pretty weak for a Star Wars movie, but it was ok, but not like The Clone Wars.

13 Star Wars Resistance

Haven’t seen it yet probably gonna watch it on Disney plus if that happens but it looks pretty kid friendly

14 Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Theatrical Version) Star Wars: The Last Jedi (Theatrical Version) Product Image
15 Solo: A Star Wars Story Solo: A Star Wars Story Product Image

Pretty violent...

16 The Rise of Skywalker
