Disney/ Pixar Films in order of emotional distress

Teaching kids how to cry since 1937 (SPOILERS)
  1. 1.
    The Lion King
    Oh god Mufasa's death will haunt children forever, that little 'dad?' Simba says gets me everytime. (Also why does James Earl Jones always get killed in a father role? #vader)
  2. 2.
    Toy Story 3
    The realisation not only that we must grow old and leave behind childish things, but that one day our children will too leave us behind in becoming adults. ❤️
  3. 3.
    Big Hero 6
    Fuck me this kid goes through a lot. Dead parents, dead brother, dead robot - if you make it through this dry eyed you have no soul
  4. 4.
    This sad sequence at the beginning of the film is IMO the only bit worth watching as it goes considerably down hill after this - but so heart breaking.
  5. 5.
    Inside Out
    It didn't help that my little niece cried her eyes out at this, intensifying the emotion. Poor little Riley.
  6. 6.
    Finding Nemo
    Nemo's mum dying then Dory forgetting again? Harrowing stuff.
  7. 7.
    Poor Bambi's mum, just chillin in her forest life, minding her own business. So cruel.
  8. 8.
    The Fox and the Hound
    When Widow Tweet Abandons Todd 😔 Actually this whole film fucked me up for life
  9. 9.
    Rapunzel's parents and their grief is painful to watch (everyone is hot in this film)
  10. 10.
    After their parents die Anna needs her sister but she's no where to be found
