21Inside Out

I've literally seen every Disney animated feature length movie. This movie is by far the saddest movie of them all. The last 15 minutes save it a little bit, but overall I almost turned it off multiple times and that never happens. Ironic that one of the few Disney movies that have both parents make it through the whole movie is the saddest movie of them all.

Oh gosh the pixar emotions strike again but now there on the big screen being emotions! :/

This should be number one. It's so sad when you see it.

Such a sad movie always makes me cry even though I've watched it millions of times!

22The Princess and the Frog

It's very sad how Tiana has very little time for anything but work. Also when the firefly does I forget his name. Haven't seen this in like two months.

23Alice In Wonderland
24Oliver & Company

This is the #1 saddest movie for me. First time I've seen it, I'm 30 years old, and I can't stop crying. All he wanted was a loving family, and nobody picked him out of the box. :(

And here's another one no one added. Come on, didn't you feel so bad at the beginning when Oliver almost drowned in that box? And then he got chased by rabbid dogs. And then I felt bad for Jenny later on when she did everything to get Oliver back.

Since I'm a cat person, this one hit me in the feels

25The Good Dinosaur

THIS SHOULD BE NUMBER 1! It's so sad when he is the only one who hasn't made his mark, loses his dad who died protecting him, loses his family, ALMOST loses Spot, and sees his dad in his mind. I literally CRIED on most bits!

I just got done watching... (SPOILER) It's so sad to see poppa die... And when spot leaves... Very Emotional.

. Just watched this movie. When Spot left and found his family I was bawling. So sad

This is very sad for a disney movie

26Lilo & Stitch

I just... I don't know... I guess the overall theme of loneliness? Or having to need someone to rely on and talk to? Human's need for companionship?

I cry like a 3 year old every time.

It is so sad how she has no parents and possibly will be taken from her sister.

When stitch leaves the house :'( every time

Best Disney movie ever

27Lilo & Stitch 2: Stitch Has a Glitch

This movie made me more emotional than a majority of the ones on this list. After the firs movie, you've built this connection to the characters, and all of a sudden they get torn apart once again. I still cry over it.

Lilo and stitch 2 is one of these movies that not much people have seen but is a sequel that is still brilliant. That being said, the film contains a very specific part which is guaranteed to make any person with a heart cry. From the first movie, a love is created for lilo and stitch where the thought of anything happen to them makes you sad.
"You will always be my Ohana, stitch"- It will break you heart.

I still cry when stitch is in the machine and his hand droops down. I'm 19 by the way

This movie more sad than first one

28The Rescuers

Why didn't anyone else add this one?! You just have to feel bad for poor Penny especially when Medusa asks "What makes you think anyone would want a homely little girl like you?! " and then the song Someone's Waiting for You plays. And then poor Penny cries.

How is this not higher?! Even thinking about this movie makes me tear up! First of all the beginning of the movie starts with Penny being passed up on being adopted and it still gets worse when she tucks her teddy bear into bed tearfully telling him everything will be ok, not believing herself. Plus the atmosphere of the swamp and the music ugh

This movie was so sad and I cried so hard, Penny was the cause of it all, I mean, who would make a little girl have such a sad childhood

It's sadder and darker than the others should be on the top. But has funny moments as well

29Cinderella

This movie should be number ONE because it is so sad... It starts out that Ella is a happy girl and is very rich. But soon her mother is on her deathbed and tells Ella to, 'have courage and be kind. ' In the next scene Ella is, like, seventeen and her father is going to remarry. It is obvious at once that her stepfamily is not friendly, and the cat is not either. Her father goes away on one of his many trips. Anastasia and Drizella (her stepsisters) ask for clothes and stuff like that, but Ella asks for the first branch he brushes against on his journey. A few days later a man tells her that her father is dead and gives her the branch. She is heartbroken. The stepmother gradually reduces her to a servant, because they have no money and she dismissed all of the others. Ella is sad but never loses heart. She has to eat after them and sleep in the attic. When it was too cold in the attic she slept by the dying coals in the fire. In the morning she had cinders on her face and so they ...more

This one should totally be in the top 20 at least! There were some funny parts but most of it was sad, how Ella was orphaned and everyone was so mean to her. And also when the prince's dad died. That wasn't in the original, I guess Disney wanted to make it even SADDER.

Come ON does no one agree with me? I have written ALL of these comments, by the way, so I could use some more people who agree! How could you not!?

Dude this is why I hate cats. UGH.

30Bolt

When Bolt realizes Penny can't escape the burning building and curls up next to her to die with her is one of the most heartbreaking things I have ever seen in a cartoon. It makes me cry every time, because there have been real dogs that loved their owners too much to leave them, even if it meant dying

He would rather die with her opposed to away from her, but then they were saved from the burning building!

I never understood this movie as a kid, but now I do. I didn't really cry; I can't see sadness in movies most of the time, but I will agree, it is a beautiful movie - SeeU

Bolt should be number 1

31Toy Story 2

"When Somebody Loved Me" makes me cry every single time, without fail.

The Jessie's history with the "When somebody loved me" song playing are so deep... - Anton110

Lol I handled WHEN SHE LOVED ME I think jessie has bad coping skills it was 1960!

Woody lost his arms twice and Jessie hated him

32Zootopia

Judy's speech at the end, the scene where Nick gets bullied, and the song "try everything".

The flashback where the fox's friends put a muzzle on him and kicked him out of their scouts club made me BAWL.

2nd saddest Disney movie of all time number one is inside out, I cried so hard watching that movie

This Movie Is Not Sad At All

34Brave

If you think about it, this movie is very devastating, Merida tries to control her own life instead of her mother controlling her life, so she ran away and had a witch put a spell on her mother to change her, but the witch turned Queen Elinor (Merida's mother) into a bear, making Elinor unwelcome at her own kingdom, for King Fergus, Merida's father, killed any bear he saw. It was sad how King Fergus (without knowing it was his wife) chases Elinor when she was a bear and nearly kills her, but after years of hating her mother, Merida steps in and starts fighting her father to save Elinor, this is true mother-daughter love. It is also sad when Merida couldn't break the curse from the witch and her mother was almost gone forever. And how the Prince that became Mor'du was so angry that he wasn't the only ruler of HIS clan that anger got the best of him, he turned into a bear because the witch gave him a spell. He ended up destroying the clan and killing his only brothers, he became lonely, ...more - docreywashere

It's a sad movie. It's devastating when Merida thinks her mom is gone and is just a bear. I find it mystifying that after Mor'du died his spirit turned back to a prince and then a whisp.

35Wreck-It Ralph

I'm usually pretty good at not crying while watching movies, but I came very, very, VERY close to losing it with this one.

Who would break a kart?! If she made it, she would not be a glitch that bad and it's just random

The whole Sonic the Hedgehog scene made me cry like a baby. This should be top 1.

This is not sad at all!

36Finding Dory

The only sad part is that she lost her parents when she was young due to her short term memory loss.

I went to see this and it sad that she had lost her parents

37Pocahontas

The greatest.. Saddest.. Most beautiful Disney movie and love story ever made! So romantic and heartbreaking.. It's a tale of war between two cultures.. A love affair that was doomed from the beginning.. The sacrifices they made/were prepared to make for one another (Pocahontas ran to John Smith's rescue when he as about to be killed and he took a bullet for her father) and their sad goodbye to one another at the end... Pocahontas should definitely be number one!

Such a beautiful movie but with such a sad ending. I wasn't familiar with the story of Pocahontas so the ending was unexpected, and she was the only princess not to get a happy ending. Also, the music played at the ending is so powerful, so beautiful. I was crying for 2-5 minutes after this. Best Disney movie ever

Come on! The ending is so heartbreaking, it at least deserves the top 20.

I hated this movie.

38Homeward Bound: The Incredible Journey

I cried when sassy falls into the waterfall. I thought she was dead.

I've lived with a cat for my entire life whom I love very much... when Sassy falls down the waterfall and dies, I burst into tears.

39High School Musical 3

The first time when I watched this movie... I cried for like an hour... When two lovers had to separate I felt sorry for troy... And when gabriella was singin "walk away"

The end pretty much saved it because Troy can drive to Gabriella's college

The thing that's sad is that this movie existed - poopmckenzie

This movie is so sad... :(

40Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs

The scene where the Seven Dwarfs grieving over Snow White's death (including Grumpy trying not to show his emotions but finally broke down and started sobbing uncontrollably) was the saddest.

Bambi's mom's death? Emotionless. Mufasa's death? Overrated. Snow whites death? Bawling my eyes out, especially when the dwarves have their funeral.

This movie had a part that was kinda creepy I mean who would kiss a dead body and expect it to awaken? A lovesick zombie, maybe.
