Top Ten Saddest Disney Movies


The Contenders: Page 3

41 High 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... :(

43 The Black Cauldron

This movie is so SAD I can't even begin to explain my crying to people I just can't

This movie is terrible

I cry every time I watch Gurgi jump in the cauldron.

Gurgi has no friends...that part gets me.

44 Cinderella (2015)

Not only do Ella's parents die but also in this version the king dies but not before allowing his son Kit to marry for love.

The recent adaptation is arguably even sadder simply because we see the bond young Ella had with her mother.

Beautiful but sad

45 The Little Mermaid

Eh, She gets back to eric and saves her dad. Then its not sad anymore

48 Mulan

This is a pretty sad story; Mulan feels that she has put down her family honor, so she puts down herself. Then her father gets chosen to battle against the Huns with the rest of the Chinese army. She realizes that her family would be damaged forever if her elderly father was killed in war, but thought that if she died, no one in her family would miss her because she put down their family name. She took her father's armor and disguised herself as a man. She never would have known that her actions ripped her family's hearts out. - docreywashere

50 The 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

51 Enchanted

When the evil queen banishes the main princess, and she is lost in Manhattan trying to find happiness and her true love.


52 Bambi II

For me it is one of the examples when sequel is better than the first part of the movie. Very uncommon for the cartoon. It is the only famous animated film that reveals the problem of father - son relations so deeply, as well as questions of love, courage, boasting. Never understand people who cries about the first chapter. No offense, the time period between 2 chapters is 60 years. So drama developed greatly. And all its experience merged in this pure and soulful masterpiece. Lots of love.

P. S. Also read original P. Manix "The fox and the hound" (if you want to experience a real drama). But be aware of its mature content.

53 A Goofy Movie

The father son bonding experience is so heartwarming

54 Aladdin V 1 Comment
55 Robin Hood

. Just watch it and you'll see what I mean.

Too bad Robbin Hood died because of a revenge.

56 Hercules

How is a person giving up his life to save a person he loves not sad? Hercules should be in the top 10, at least!

This movie made me cry!

57 The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea
58 Piglet's Big Movie

This movie wasn't sad but that moment when Piglet starts crying gets me every time. - trazel

59 Peter Pan Return to Neverland

The ending made me cry. I wanted Jane to stay with Peter, he already lost Wendy to another man. I wish Peter would have stayed in England and grew up with Jane.

I cry every time the scene plays where Jane is upset and doesn't believe in her mothers stories about Peter Pan and neverland. It makes me cry even more when "I Try" plays in the background

I start feeling emotional whenever I think of this movie

60 Star Wars: Episode VII - The Force Awakens

It's owned by Disney, but man, when the first Order kills so many billions of people with a superweapon, and when one of the greatest movie characters is killed off by a child, never in such a long time has there been a movie this sad, this might even surpass Titanic.

I still miss him. I won't mention the name because I don't want to spoil it.

This vote deserves more, it has never been felt in such sadness like we've measured before, first, so many people died after the First Order attacked them, then later, our greatest movie hero is killed by his son, Tragic.

SPOILER Han Solos death was so sad
