MPAA Rated PG-13 for some sequences of intense action violence, frightening images and brief sensuality

Sex & Nudity

Violence & Gore

  • In Malfoy manor there is fighting going on here.
  • At the start of the movie, Charity Burbage gets levitated lying on her back and head hanging backwards. She gets killed in this position during a meeting with all the Death Eaters. It is implied that her corpse gets eaten by a large snake
  • A Weasley brother is seen with a blood splattered on his chopped ear by a curse. He is Ok after that.
  • Some fights with wands and magic but they last a couple of seconds to a full minute
  • Ron's arm gets mutilated during a chase scene. His arm looks rather mangled and we see a lot of blood. He is also convulsing in a really disturbing manner.


  • Bloody hell is said 8 times. Oh my god is also said once.

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • On two occasions, presumably alcoholic drinks are seen appearing in champagne glasses. Men are seen holding glasses of presumably alcoholic beverages. Characters behave drunkenly and consume alcohol at a wedding, drunken men seen in London. Potions are used to sedate and clean wounds.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • The film's ending is very depressive and heartbreaking.
  • The scene involving Bathilda Bagshot in Godric's Hollow is one of the most frightening in the series. It plays out almost like a horror movie
  • Some action violence: frightening characters and creatures, mild jump scares, physical transformations, et cetera.


The Parents Guide items below may give away important plot points.

Sex & Nudity

  • There is a scene where a projection of Harry and Hermione standing next to each other naked taunting Ron. All we see them do is kiss and we don't see any sensitive parts. The scene is meant to be unsettling and not sexual.

Violence & Gore

  • One of the main characters has a slur violently cut into her arm with a dagger. While we can't see it happen, we hear horrifying screaming and scrapings.
  • Dobby gets stabbed in the stomach with a knife. The knife gets pulled out and we see lots of blood dripping from the knife and his stomach. This scene is extremely heartbreaking.

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • Dobby gets stabbed in the chest and ends up getting killed. This is very emotional to viewers.
  • In Malfoy manor, we see Bellatrix carving the word "mudblood" on Hermione's arm. You can see and hear her (Hermione) shrieking and crying in agony. Then she (Bellatrix) attempts to slit Hermione's throat but is stopped by Dobby unscrewing a chandelier and it falls not hitting Bellatrix or Hermione. This is easily the most disturbing scene in the entire franchise.
