The Disney Movies that Pulled Our Heart Strings
The Disney movies that we have watched growing up made up a large part of our childhood. However, it would be unfair, if we said, “they did” because they still do. Most probably, you still anticipate the release of a new Disney movie, but in the fear that some will catch you bawling your eyes out a Disney movie or laughing until your tummy hurts, you take your kid sister, brother or cousin along with you.
If you gallantly march into the theater without fearing who will catch you, we commend you for your bravery. In fact, you reading this is proof enough that you have a soft spot for Disney movies, and why shouldn’t you, they are great. Since we love our Disney movies too, here are five movies that pulled at our heartstrings and will put at yours too:
1. The Little Mermaid
Ariel fell in love with a human, but that did not stop her from contacting her soul mate. The bubbly red haired princess with a beautiful voice went to a sea witch, wishing for legs instead of a tail. Even though she met with obstacles, as her voice was taken from her, she managed to get prince Eric head over heels in love with her.
Our heartstrings were pulled when the sea witch in the disguise of a beautiful girl, using Ariel’s voice put a trance on Prince Eric. It was then that we thought that Ariel would not get her dreaming wedding to the man of her dreams. In the end, all worked out, as it always does in Disney movies.
2. The Lion King
The Lion King made us laugh, smile, but mostly, made us cry. When Simba’s dad fell to his death, Simba raced to his dad’s side trying to wake him up, but the hyenas chased him away. We think even people with cold stoned hearts who do not cry easily cried watching that particular scene. We know we wept like a baby!
All Rapunzel wanted to do was escape the tower to see the lanterns, and her wish came true when she captured Flynn with her hair (the expression on Flynn was priceless). What we liked the most was how they slowly fell in love with each other, almost kissing in the boat. When Flynn gave his life to save Rapunzel from the treacherous Mother Gothel, we saw Rapunzel desperately trying to heal and bring him back to life. At that part, we really thought that Flynn was gone and we felt a tear slide down our cheek or perhaps, that was only us. Her tears brought him back to life and the world was in order.
Merida showed everyone that you do not have to be dolled up to be brave. You can be yourself and be brave. This one was thing we loved about this arrow shooting girl. In fact, she gave Katniss from Hunger Games a run for her money. The touching heart moment came when the mother and daughter bonded or shall we say mother bear and cub.
Which Disney movie pulled at your heartstrings? Be brave and tell us the moment you went aww watching a Disney movie.
