Saddest Moments in Pixar Movies

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

The Top Ten

1 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

Inside Out is the saddest Pixar movie because it's sad throughout. The saddest Pixar SCENE, on the other hand... the rest of the movie is so cute, but this is just depressing.

Personally I think that this scene is one of the best-crafted scenes of any movies...Ever

This moment was so sad ;( - PeeledBanana

2 Andy Gives Away His Toys (Toy Story 3)

This part is very sad - steelers1979

Thanks guys...

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

4 Sulley Says Goodbye to Boo (Monsters, Inc)
5 Jessie's Backstory (Toy Story 2)
6 Opening Seen (Finding Nemo)

Finding Nemo Lied. Marlin should've turned into a mom, not stay as a dad. In real life, if the mother clownfish dies, the father turns into a mother.

Right when Marlon picks up Nemo and says “Daddy’s Got You” that moment always manages to make me break down into tears

10 Doc's Story (Cars)

The Contenders

11 Merida Rips the Family Tapestry (Brave)

I cried so hard in this scene this is the first pixar movie to make me cry three times
