The opening scene involves direct upsetting emotional abuse of a child. He expresses vulnerability to his father and is immediately taken aside and intensely criticized for this perceived weakness.

Seriously, Artax’s death was the saddest thing I had ever seen as a child. He comes back in the end, but it does not negate the death scene.

Bullies chase and catch the protagonist. There's a brief moment of restraint (they even pull his head back by the hair) but this situation resolves very soon, and in a way that is more cartoonish than uncomfortable.

The main character discovers that the characters in the book he's reading are aware of his presence, and they break the fourth wall to talk to him. Within the fiction, this is all something that's actually happening and not a delusion, but the situation may be uncomfortable for people who have similar delusions.

MAJOR: A man is killed by laser beams, and we see his charred face. MINOR: A character is shown with bloody wounds on a few occasions, but these are mostly just the SFX "battle damage" variety with only one closeup of an especially bad scrape near his collarbone.
