20 Times Disney Broke Your Heart

No matter if you are five or thirty-five, chances are that Disney movies hold a special place in your heart. Each movie is an emotional story full of ups and downs, with moments that will make you cry out of both joy and heartbreak. Deep down we all love the emotional torment, though we can’t help but wonder why Disney enjoys torturing its audiences so much. Here is a compilation of some of the saddest moments Disney ever put on screen. Try and get through it dry-eyed, we dare you.

Bambi’s Loss

One of the few moments in Disney where the character who was “killed” stayed dead — and it was one of the saddest moments ever. Seeing cute little Bambi so sad is almost unbearable.

Tod’s Abandonment

After finding and raising baby Tod, seeing Willow Tweed return him to the wild was a very sad scene. When she cried as she drove away, we all cried with her.

Ellie and Carl’s Story

These fifteen minutes of UP were incredible. Carl and Ellie’s life together was so adorable, and you couldn’t help but smile the whole time — that is, until it reached the end, where it shows Carl by himself after Ellie’s death. Then, a montage of smiles and sunshine turned into a whole lot of tears.

Jessie’s Tale

The backstory of Toy Story’s cowgirl, Jessie, was truly heartbreaking. It had joy, abandonment, heartache, but then new hope. The Sarah McLachlan song in the background didn’t help, either.
