  • Harry takes a bath, and we see him bare from the chest up. The ghost of a young girl comes in and sees him, coming up next to him in the bath suggestively. He tries to back away awkwardly, and nothing explicit happens.
  • Hermione (Emma Watson) wears skin-tight clothing throughout; at one point, she is seen wearing a long, elegant, pink dress revealing bare arms & shoulders.
  • Several boys and girls are asked out to The Yule Ball dance. Some suggestive comments are made.
