Watching the Lion King as a kid, Mufasa being killed in a stampede was the first time we ever saw tragedy strike. In the history of kid movies, has there EVER been a more unexpected, bummer of a death? One minute Simba’s singing songs, the next we’re seeing a deceiving lion murder his brother in cold-hearted fashion and I for one was pretty emotionally screwed up after this. I spent a good 3 weeks in a small depression, sitting in my room alone and not eating my Fruit Loops at breakfast. Disturbing Disney deaths would appear again 4 years later in Mulan when the villain, Shan-Yu would be blown up in a building full of fireworks and chunks of his burning flesh fell to a celebration below. Yeah… And that’s rated G.
