In the first season, episode three Eleven has a flashback from when she was in a laboratory, where she is asked to kill a cat in a cage with her powers. The cat is obviously scared and Eleven can't bring herself to hurt it.

SPOILERS: the worst is the chimpanzee is shot during the longer flashback about halfway through the film. You can tell it’s coming because you hear sirens. You only see blood splatter on a sheer tablecloth and the chimp kind of quickly falls out of frame. It’s very quick and the chimp is reaching out it’s hand for a fist bump. It’s clearly a CG monkey so that’s good? Helped me get through it at least. Now for the horses: no horses are shown being abused or tortured in any way (the worst is a horse is sucked up into a dust cloud but he’s not crying out- it’s very quick). In the very beginning after the hospital scene, the white horse is shown alive and well but there’s a key sticking out of its skin and some dried blood. But the horse is okay- it’s just showing hard objects fell from the sky. The rest of the horses are shown at different points running, and making sounds that echo but It’s never explicit. One horse is shown being sucked into a dusty storm but it’s quick. This is at night maybe 40 mins in and you can tell it’s about to happen. You don’t see any horses explicitly die. Some horses appear to have been sucked up into the sky but we never see what happens to them. Don’t worry about Lucky- Lucky doesn’t die and is never injured. :)

A rat is placed into a pan against someones belly and heat is applied to the pan. Also, some dogs are left in starvation, but they later eat their owner, which is nice.

Sort of. A pig is forced to stop breathing (mental control, no physical harm is done to it) and passes out after few seconds. A moment later is awaken and unharmed.

Appa is treated horribly by several characters throughout an entire episode. He is stolen, tied up, sold, beaten, starved, threatened with flames, attacked by other animals. It's a very sad episode, and is hard to watch, and it doesn't really end happily. Appa is reunited with Aang a few episodes later.

Just the one scene, about 1/3 of the way in to the movie. No torture or anything too gruesome, but a rabbit has its neck snapped. The rabbit is only onscreen a few minutes so as soon as you see the rabbit step out/look away for 4-5 minutes.

Meant to be comedic but a small dog is used as a weapon and is forcefully kicked through the air, it’s clear a prop dog is used in place of a real dog

Really disliked the scene in which a horse is scared out of its mind by having a cloth repeatedly thrown/smacked in the face. The horse nearly falls trying to get away from the actor. Acting or not: there is no animal friendly way to create reactions like this. I can’t believe these things still happen to defenceless animals that have no idea it’s “just acting”. There should’ve been a better alternative with all the CGI that is available. Bad move on the producer’s part here… EDIT: I’ve been working with horses all my life and I know the difference between “learned tricks” and natural behaviour. I know what I’m talking about that’s why the scene upsets me so much. This horse was scared far beyond what should be allowed within animal welfare guidelines.
