Very distressing scene of whale-like creatures being hunted and killed. It involves a mother and child animal dua too. When the antagonists agree to "go hunting", I would leave the room for about 20-30 minutes if these particular types of scenes are distressing to you

A whale like animal is drawn out by playing loud noises to hurt its echolocation, then a mom and baby are separated from the pod by this method, the mom is hunted and killed for what feels like 10 mins while people joke about it and then you have to watch the sea people mourn the loss. It’s about 20 mins of straight hell if you care about animals.

Not an earth horse, but animals the characters ride like horses do die in several scenes

Considering the bonds between Na'vi and animal beings I'd say that the pet dies (but it's not a pet in the meaning of small animal kept in the house).

Well, not a dragon per se, but dragon-like creatures from Pandora.

Sometimes people are shot with arrows in the face and it looks like it might have entered the eye but you can’t tell because it never shows the wound

A teenage boy is restrained while a large spinning device causes him to scream. No visual signs of harm except a small amount of blood from his nose.

I do not recall seeing any animals on fire as in the first avatar movie. But many are overcome by flames and assumed burned up.

Not in that they have sex, but nobody in the movie, including the children, wears much clothing. There’s also a shot where a minor portrayed as attractive but it’s from another minor’s perspective

Spoilers: a whale-like creature allows itself to be shot at to protect navi children. The father of the same children repeatedly attempts to turn himself in to save them. In both instances, everyone survives, but characters take action willing to sacrifice themselves.

≈9 min (MODERATE): A man wakes up on an operating table; after someone says, "Can you hear me?" the man punches someone. ≈31 min (MODERATE): Kids run home after a stakeout; right after the littlest says, "It's almost eclipse come on!" something happens. ≈1 hr, 15 min (MINOR): During a chase scene with a scary shark-like creature, a boy hides behind some coral; there's a brief, false moment of calm before the creature smashes through the coral. ≈1 hr, 21 min (MAJOR): A boy wakes up on what seems to be a rocky surface and looks around; eventually a blowhole sharply erupts next to him. ≈1 hr, 34 min (MINOR): A girl has a vision and asks someone a few questions; before the person seen in the vision can give answers, they dissolve and are dragged away somewhat quickly. ≈2 hr, 15 min (MAJOR/BIGGEST SCARE): During an underwater chase, a little girl hides in an air pocket to catch her breath; seconds later, someone else pops up inside with a loud music sting.

Kiri is not a confirmed autistic character, but she has some autistic traits, such as her fascination and interactions with the biodiversity on Pandora. She is bullied for it, called a "freak" and pushed around by a group of boys and is ashamed of being different.

Hard to say for sure. A couple of the characters experience flashbacks but it's not plainly described as PTSD

No but some children are bullied for having starkly different body types to their peers. Their thinner tails, thinner arms, and number of fingers are the main target for the bullies.

Some laser beams fly toward the audience which might be disconcerting in 3d, but they’re being shot at characters in the movie. No one addresses the audience

Not necessarily but child characters are teased for bodily features outside of their control (number of fingers, short tails, bodies not built the same way)

I assume people are concerned about the main alien species being Native American misrepresentation because there admittedly aren't a lot of other minorities the film could be misrepresenting. I haven't seen a lot of these claims (most of the representation complaints regard the first film's use of white savior syndrome) so YMMV I guess.

The Navi are continuously called savage, feral and backward by humans.

A character is referred to with his birth name and retorts “nobody calls me that,” he’s cisgender so this isn’t misgendering.

A young boy hangs out with his older "father", who tries to foster a connection with him. It is not sexual or explicit, but is manipulative.

I watched the movie with this in mind. The only moment of sexual objectification comes when a teenage boy first meets a girl of his age and she walks out of the water to greet him. Regarding the other things the other reviewer says, yes, the Na'vi wear little clothing (the same as the first film), but tribal clothing isn't inherently sexual. Characters are often restrained, but just by futuristic slap bracelets around their wrists. It's not sexual.

One could argue there's toxic masculinity in the movie (emphasis on men being the protectors and needing to be tough warriors to be men etc.) But there's no instance of a man being ridiculed for crying

Yes, one character have epilepsy. Im gonna spoil a bit of the movie here, but I'll do my best to keep it as small as possible. There was this part where the characters went to somewhere and one of them said "eclipse is the best time to be here". Shortly after that, the movie cuts to a part where a character was shown to be talking to what looks like her mother, and they hugged. After the hugging scene, the next 15 mins said character had a seizure. Avoid that part if such thing triggers you. Thats the only part that features it, so you can rest assure that you won't see it again for the rest of the movie

Blood is seen in small amounts. I would not call it gore. Mostly superficial cuts and one bullet wound.
