Yes, a large plot point is that a whale-adjacent animal is abandoned by its clan for committing a violent act, which is frowned upon by the animals species.

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.

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.

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. However, some Indigenous people have spoken out against this film and it’s predecessor (including a member of the Lakota Sioux, a tribe which James Cameron has made racist comments about) and as a white person I don’t believe it’s my place to give an opposing argument.

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.

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

Throughout the film the na'vi take down human planes we see them crash multiple times. A few main characters almost die via this

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