“Toy Story 3
Oh the incinerator scene alone, I mean why take my nostalgia for my childhood, revive it, then threaten to burn it alive then be like, “siiiiike!” then end it on a happy but sad finale I mean that’s just cruel beyond words.”

“This is a weird one because it isn’t a sad movie, but for me it’s Mulan. After she presents her father with the sword of Shan Yu and the crest of the emperor, her dad ignores them and says “the greatest gift of all is having you for a daughter”.

"I literally cried just looking up gifs from this movie…perhaps the saddest on the list."
“The Land Before Time.
When I saw it as a kid it was the first time that I realized my parents could die. That thought had never even really occurred to me.
Even now as an adult the scene where he thinks he sees her but it’s just his shadow and the narrator says, “Then Little Foot knew for certain he was alone.” still gets me every single time.
I’m sure that movie will make me cry even more after my mom passes because one of her nicknames for me is Little Foot.”
