Disney’s always given us our share of rip-out-your-heart scenes, but a select few affect with me as much as this one has. Since I was a little kid. Every. Single. Time.
“Long live the king.” No amount of therapy will ever make this moment okay. Did you know I once counted how many times I cried hysterically while watching The Lion King? Six…yes, six different moments in the film reduce me to a tear-stained mess. But (and please excuse the pun) this one sits squarely at the top of the food chain. Honorable mention shoutouts go to Ray’s death in The Princess and the Frog, the ending of The Fox and the Hound, and pretty much the entirety of Pixar’s Up. Which scene from a Disney film makes you sob unlike any other?
