Deaths of pets, parents, friends. Why are children’s movies so SAD?
Mufasa is trampled to death by a herd of wildebeests right in front of his son. Talk about traumatic.
Noooo! Poor Shadow, at least it turns out okay in the end. (But not before you are thoroughly traumatized.)
The unexpected death by bees was equally terrifying and heartbreaking.
Littlefoot’s mother is killed by Sharptooth in a both scary and heartbreaking scene. And then we have to watch their final goodbyes.
Dumbo’s mother is not killed, but they are cruelly kept apart.
Finding Nemo cuts to the chase and rips your soul out in the very first scene.
The death of Bambi’s mother is the only thing I remember from this movie. That, and the uncontrollable tears of my brother and I.
Why must they kill little Wilbur’s friend? It’s nice that some of her children stay behind, but it hardly eases the blow.
No, you won’t see Leslie later.
Nobody died, but The Chokey was quite a lot to handle at a young age.
