Frightening & Intense Scenes
- There is a scene where Potter's face gets accidentally hit with a burning foaming liquid, causing it to eat on his face and make him shriek in pain. Not only does it cause him to lose his mustache for the rest of the film, but it also causes the skin on his face to look burned for the rest of it.
- Peagreen finds himself on an assembly line stuck in an empty milk bottle that's about to be filled. Arrietty and Spiller try to rescue him throughout the various stages of that filling process. Younger kids may get nervous as the bottle fills up with milk and a cap is put on, trapping Peagreen under the milk's surface. Meanwhile, Potter smashes bottles as they come down the assembly line and gets closer to hitting the one on which Arrietty and Spiller are standing.
