Not parents but Harry’s uncle and aunt are basically abusive to him, so he runs away at the start of the film.

Harry's aunt Marge arrives and treats Harry unfairly, talks negatively about his parents, and calls his mum a b. We are shown that Harry is psychologically affected by this afterwards when he kicks boxes in his room. There is also shouting between Harry and Uncle Vernon.

The lies being told to Harry are unintentional - they think they are telling the truth, and are trying to protect him, so I would argue that it's not gaslighting

The scene described by the other comment is actually in Harry Potter 2 (The chamber of secrets) but there is a scene in the Prisoner of Azkaban. During Lupin's class, they're training against a boggart and Ron is arachnophobic so the boggart turn into a giant spider before Ron add rollers to each of the legs. When the student facing the boggart change, the spider shapshift into something else.

Going with a light "Yes" here. It's heavily implied that it's going to happen to a creature and goes through the motions of it, cutting away before it happens. However, the creature is revealed later to be fine. The lead up could be upsetting for some.

Only a couple of minor scares early in the Film.

Here are the jump scare times if you've not watched Harry Potter, but you HATE jump scares.

(Mild) (14:38) The Chomp-y book suddenly tries to attack Harry

(Mild) (14:59) After the camera zooms in the Chomp-y book it suddenly tries to attack Harry again

(Mild) (19:54) The Hogwarts Train suddenly shakes and makes a loud noise - It also happens at 20:18

(Mild) (53:40) The Dementor suddenly moves up to the camera behind 2 other Dementors during a Quidditch match

(Mild) (1:18:05) Trelawney suddenly grabs Harry by the shoulder, accompanied by a sound effect

When the characters are attacked by the whomping willow I remember them screaming.

I have not watched this movie in a while so I don't have the timestamps but I am extremely sensitive to screaming and would maybe wanna watch this film some time, so if anyone could add timestamps for any screaming/yelling I would appreciate it :)

Borderlinely. The phrase "Parents won't want someone in my condition teaching their children" is used in reference to Professor Lupin's lycanthropy.
