A newt is flung at a (bad) person and crawls inside their collar which makes the person panic, but the newt is OK at the end. A circus lion is seen, but not harmed or forced to perform.

A violent character is regularly called “mad” (as in the brit way) by others, whether she is genuinely psychotic (as in disconnected from reality) is up to you.

It’s an adaption of a musical stage play, so there are musical sequences which seem to be performed “at” the camera but the characters do not address the audience verbally.

In childbirth, and the baby lives. Not shown onscreen, but described. It is because she was forced to perform a dangerous stunt while pregnant. SPOILERS this happens during a story Matilda is telling but is later revealed to have really happened

the other comment more similarly matches anti-Roma prejudice, not antisemitism. It is a strange decision although not hatefully portrayed. This character is a positive figure in Matilda’s life.

The role historically played by a man in drag is played by a woman here, so no. But the character is dressed with body prosthetics to look exactly the same (big, muscular) and is still mocking masculine women
