Saddest Disney and Pixar Animated Moviesdoctorman
The Top Ten
The first 10 minutes had everyone in the theater bawling, adults as well as children. Such a sweet film. It's also comedic it had us laughing one minute and crying the next. I recently watched it for about the 100th time, and I still cried at least 5 times. It's also quite a relatable film as it involves love, loss, friendship, etc.. It's so powerful and just an overall fantastic story which I'm sure everybody, young or old, would enjoy. I can't recommend it enough!
The first 10 - 15 minutes is the greatest thing that Pixar has ever written, so perfectly made - kempokid

This movie gave me so much emotion in the first 10 minutes! It is a very sweet and sad movie. - doctormanV 27 Comments
This movie makes me cry during the time when Joy and Bing Bong fall into the pit where Riley forgets memories and stuff. It made me cry when Joy cried. I mean, it's the EMOTION joy. The emotion who brings us happiness and she cried. And when Bing Bong sacrificed himself and told Joy to take Riley to the moon as he was soon forgotten. It also saddened me at the ending.
I think by far its one of the best animated movies I have seen. Its very touching too.
The great thing about this movie is that it isn't perfect. How would you like it if Joy had never fallen into the pit with Bing Bong and Bing Bong was never forgotten and they all made it back to headquarters and the moral of the story was, "Quit wining and hot glue a smile onto your face." But instead, (Spoiler alert) Joy falls into the pit, we get a beautiful scene where Bing Bong sacrifices himself so that Joy and Sadness can save the trainwreck that is at this point Riley, which they do and even though everything doesn't end perfectly, at least there's progress being made, and the moral is, "You can't live without sadness and that emotions never die."
This movie makes me cry every time I hear it's theme song, watch a trailer about it, or whenever I watch the movie! This is by far Pixar's best movie yet! I'm not going to spoil it, though! It is the saddest movie I've ever seen! - doctorman
The five tearjerker moments:
#1: Riley crying in front of her class - I felt really bad that I cried on the inside.
#2: Joy failing to go up through the tube - I felt really bad and shocked.
#3: Joy crying while in the Memory Dump - I just about (JUST ABOUT) teared up for this one.
#4: Bing Bong fading away - I cried very badly. (*sniff*)
#5: Riley tearful brooding to her parents about Minnesota - I cried the hardest because I CAN COMPLETELY RELATE TO IT! T_T (I just wish I could go back to where I've grown up my entire life entirely as both a kid and teenager...
The movie seemed to have gotten sadder and sadder as it went on... - TylertheTitan
I hope hunters take this lesson seriously: Stop killing animals for no reason! They don't deserve it, and Bambi's story is definitely not fake. It's happening to millions of animals worldwide, and we have to stop it! Imagine if someone shot your mother or father! How would you feel? Why would hunters do that? I remember walking into Dick's and seeing all the hunting things and CRYING! I never cry! I hate it! Please make the torture stop, hunters!
The guy who shot Bambi's character is the worst Disney character of all time

! SPOILER! it isn't always shown, but as a student majoring psychology, I can tell the grief and emotional dynamic that happens to the main character due to what he loss
I really think this is an emotional movie. I cry every time I watch it! - Lina1028
Very emotional. It's the best Disney movie and emotional
Big Hero 6 reminds me of this other movie, Frank And RobotV 10 Comments
If you grew up watching the Toy Story movies as I did this one pulls at your heart strings. If your like me you feel like you grew up with Andy's toys as well and so there's that emotional connection you share with the characters. Not the saddest Disney movie but definitely top 5.
It's certainly the most unpredictable Disney movie, even the part where Lotso turns evil is almost impossible to predict unless you've watched the movie before or read this review.
The ending made me cry
Cried at the ending and when they accepted there death and held handsV 8 Comments
WOW! This movie was like! The Mother and Daughter relationship is very well shown! I thought this movie would be like AVERAGE but when I watched this movie for the first time it had BLOWN my mind like anything! The last scene when Merida's mother turns to normal was even more EMOTIONAL! I literally cried that time! One of the best movies from Pixar! - Victoryboy
The end makes you very sad, and also it's very touching! Lovely movie!
I cry at this movie every time. Even if I am not a daughter I still love the Mother - Daughter relationship. The ending is so sad.
This movie is beautiful and heartbreaking an needs to be higher. - punyraisinV 5 Comments

The world is cruel the worl is wicked. - misfortuneluck
WHY isn't THIS FIRST It's SO UPSETTING
This should be #1. Watch it and if you don't cry or even get sad, there's something wrong with you.
Upsetting. Why do these less sadder movies top this?
I cried in the end, seeing them apart is sad, needs a better sequel!V 4 Comments
I think The Lion King is the saddest Disney movie because Simba's Daddy died. By his own brother, that's just sad and they talked about it nearly talked about it for nearly all of the second part, but by the way, The Lion King is the best Disney movie ever!
Don't give me death threats for this or something but I love this movie but it's super overrated. I find it extremely sad and bawl my eyes out every time. - punyraisin
When Mufasa died, I was weeping uncontrollably, I have to admit.
This was supper sad when his dad dies this should be at least in the top fiveV 5 Comments
For me, the saddest part was when Randall was banished. - Camaro6
The ending, then a soft sob
I cry every time Boo goes home
This is the best movie of all it just proves that even the kind ones can get left behind and that all of the robots who were classed as broken were the best ones of them all
I cry every time
The Jessie & Emily moments! - sryanbruen
Bad movie, but it made me cry a lot. Ill give it credit for that - codgtamk34
I found this movie disappointing. It wasn't the lack of realism, it was just... Not what I expected. A sad movie doesn't make a movie necessarily bad, like how parents were complaining about how "Inside Out" was too sad. Too SAD?! Uh-uh, you can't expose your children to sadness? Anyway, this movie was a bit more frightening than sad, but still eye-watering all the same. - Emberflight_of_StormClan
It was emotional, but not realistic, and the lack of realism is why this movie is the worst movie ever made by Pixar, it sucks and if they added realism into this movie, then the comet would hit the Earth and the dinosaurs would be extinct, no lie, Lots of fictional movies have lots of realism, and this had none, what a waste of money.
The realism isn't what makes this movie bad, it's its convoluted plot and shallow characters. Pixar lacks realism in almost all of their movies! A world of monsters that scare children for energy, toys coming to life, 5 emotions and millions of brain workers living in everyone's head, Earth but only cars exist and live... how are cars even born and who created the first cars? Anyways those movies are still fantastic (or at least good, in terms of Cars) and they lack a lot (or even any) realism at all. Lacking realism makes the film more interesting! - punyraisin
An extremely disappointing movie, and it's emotional scenes didn't carry through for me. Except there is a scene near the end in which the movie ripped my heart out and stomped on it. - punyraisinV 14 Comments
WHY ANIMAL CRUELTY WHY! okay number one its not ethical to whip a innocent animal number two why are you separating dem

At the end when migil (sorry if I spelled that wrong) sang remember me to coco so she would remember hector and then she starting singing along with him! And she pretty much didn't talk the whole movie that part and the part when hector was singing to coco those two parts just got me I started crying it pretty sad
This movie is my FAVOURITE Pixar movie. It had its sad moments.. - Swampert02V 8 Comments
Why in the HELL is Brave higher than this?!
The scene were Ralph has to destroy the car that he and Vanellope made together is completely heartbreaking for me. He is crushing her dreams (both literally and figuratively), because he wants to protect her, and this was the one thing that he had ever made instead of wrecking.
"You really are a bad guy! " This dialogue is enough to make us cry! It's like HEARTBREAKING for Ralph as well as for us! - Victoryboy
Oh come on, he was literally going to kill himself to save the arcade and this movie is only 14th? - DragonHarrierV 2 Comments

At times it could be sad, and it did it well! Rate this 10/10 and is sad when it needs to be.
This one was a tear jerker, I won't spoiler it but my dad cried when my mom was DESCRIBING it
Honestly This almost made me cry first time watching itV 7 Comments
This movie defiantly had its sad moments. For example, when Nick was revealed to be a victim of prejudice as a young child was a very sad moment. Also, Judy's heartfelt apology to Nick was sad as well. Inside Out seemed a bit more depressing.
Like real animals everywhere, Nick had to deal with prejudice. Sure, it's fictional, but people kill animals because they think they're harmful or because they did something that wasn't their fault. This isn't exactly the lesson, but I hope someone thought of this once.
Don't hurt my precious baby con artist fox! Nick is one of my favorite animated characters ever, second only to Dimitri from Anastasia and the Star Wars cartoon people who don't count
It had its moments, but I felt Zootopia was much more cheerful than even Big Hero 6, which might be why I love it so much! - LarkwingFlightV 13 Comments
How is this not higher
THIS NEEDS TO HIGHER! SO SAD
This movie is a whole entire emotional rollercoaster and I cried.
Definitely should be higher on the list! The story behind Koda is what seals the deal!
This is one of my favorite movies of all time because I love how the hole movie is talking about👏🏼
Not sad at all to be honest - punyraisin

I heard that Minions made my family cry when they saw. They though it was that terrible. And the saddest thing is that somebody thought it was a Disney movie.
Made me cry that it was such a disappointment also I didn't know that Illumination was a Disney Company huh... My life is a lie now... Thanks a lot whoever destroyed this list
Oops sorry about my vote I mean that the minions was not made by Disney

It’s sad that this trash exists
I don't think that this is too sad, but at least it is Disney! (glares at the people who put a bunch of Dreamworks movies, as well as the Iron Giant and Minions)
What how is this sad
This movie made me cry so hard. I had the hardest time not crying when I found out how awful this movie is.
I cried so hard at the end and just when anything happened to the beast!
