Don’t you just love those movies that make you forget about everything else, immersing you into the lives of its characters? I certainly do! Action, drama, romance, comedy, tragedy – all these things keep you glued to the screen focused on the plot twists and turns. And then it happens, a certain moment comes and you start sobbing right in the movie theatre surrounded by strangers who just happen to be sobbing, too. It’s the magic of the cinema that makes you have all these feels about characters that aren’t even real! If you like to get emotional while watching movies as much as I am, then this list is right up your alley. Here are 10 most tear-jerking movie scenes ever created.
The Lion King – Mufasa’s Death
Yep, I’m starting with some heavy stuff here. All 90s kids have grown up watching the amazing Lion King and it was impossible not to cry when you saw little Simba trying to wake up his dad, who wasn’t sleeping at all. And then he just curled near Mufasa’s body…it’s one of the most heart-breaking scenes ever!
Coco – Miguel Playing ‘Remember Me’
It is a perfect mix of happiness and sadness when in the end of the movie Miguel plays the ‘Remember Me’ song to Mama Coco and she instantly recognizes it and remembers her dad who used to sing it to her. All this despite the dementia! And then her daughter Mama Elena starts crying, and you also start crying because the emotions are just too much.
Toy Story 3 – The Furnace
The scene at the incinerator is simply heart-wrenching. When all the toys finally accept their fate and reach out to hold each other’s hands…Even Woody gives in and takes Buzz’s hand! It’s too emotional for words.
Up – First 5 Minutes
Pixar came up with a really beautiful and sad sequence for the first few minutes of UP. The characters meet as kids, grow up, fall in love with each other, dream big dreams, get married, grow old together, and finally the wife dies with their dreams still unfulfilled…It’s beyond sad!
