Saddest Moments in Pixar Movies

These moments make us break out in tears let us share them.

The Top Ten

1 Andy Gives Away His Toys (Toy Story 3) V 2 Comments
2 Ellie Dies (Up)

I don't think I have ever seen such a sadder moment in Pixar movies than Ellie's death. I don't think even Inside Out (though it is a sad movie as well) comes as close as to how sad that scene was. I almost cried the first time I saw it. :'( - ModernSpongeBobSucks

It shows the ups and downs of a couple's life so beautifully and also the background music matches the scenes and makes it even more perfect!
Kind of thing you can't find in movies easily let alone animations...

This moment was so sad ;( - PeeledBanana

3 Riley Can't Be Happy and Runs Away (Inside Out)

This is sadder then toy story 3 because this is a girl who is not yet a teenager but is depressed. I got sad at this part. - AnonymousChick
