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

Sex & Nudity

  • Some kiss scenes
  • Neville asks where Luna is, saying 'I'm mad for her'.
  • Harry, Ron, and Hermione change out of wet clothes after they jump off a dragon's back, into a stream.

Violence & Gore

  • There is a lot of duelling with Death Eaters and witches and wizards. People are bloodied up, killed and injured. The part where there are a lot of dead bodies of favorite characters can be very emotional to viewers.
  • On the aftermath of the Gringotts heist, Voldemort is shown slaying everybody in the Gringotts lobby room for failing to stop the heroes, with lifeless bodies of goblins and humans strewn up everywhere around the room
  • A werewolf fatally mauls and feasts on Lavender brown before being knocked to the nearby ravine by Hermione
  • A man gets brutally killed by a snake (seen from behind a stained glass window). While nothing too graphic is shown we see the outline of the snake rapidly attacking the man till near death. You also hear the man make disturbing sounds of pain (grunts/gasps).
  • Most disturbing and violent harry potter movie
  • A character is burned alive
  • A character freezes before exploding... not buddy but we see them burst into blank dust
  • Some of the visuals are a bit frightening
  • There is surprisingly graphic and upsetting violence in this film. Beloved characters are shown being met with sudden and agonizing deaths; occasionally with bloody results and detail.


  • 1 use of bitch, 1 git, 3 bloody, 3 bloody hell , 1 swine
  • Mild

Alcohol, Drugs & Smoking

  • Smoking: None
  • Drugs: None
  • Aberforth serves drinks to the trio in the Hog's Head. Although the book says that he served them mead, the film doesn't specify what it is.
  • None

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • There are many deaths of main and known characters throughout, which can be upsetting and emotional to viewers.


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

Sex & Nudity

  • Kiss scenes (Ron and Hermione, Harry and Ginny)
  • Hermione's cleavage can briefly be seen when they fall off the mine cart while going to Bellatrix's vault in Gringots. However it is very short and easy to miss

Violence & Gore

  • Voldemort dies and appears to be shredded up into paperlike pieces... he shouts in pain but there's no blood
  • Voldemort "kills" Harry, but Harry ends up in limbo. In limbo he sees a bloody, fetus-like version of Voldemort. It's revealed he's actually alive
  • A character slices a snake in half. There's no blood but the snake dissolves in black dust

Frightening & Intense Scenes

  • One scene in particular that is incredibly emotional and heartbreaking is when Harry looks into Snape's memories and realizes that he and Harry's mother were childhood friends and that he was in love with her. One of the memories shows Snape finding Lily Potter's dead body and bursting into tears while holding her in his arms.
  • Harry learns from Snape's memories that he needs to sacrifice himself in order to defeat Voldemort. Hermione in particular becomes very emotional on hearing this. (He ends up surviving the curse due to Voldemort having used Harry's blood to regenerate in the fourth film.)
