10+ Movie Deaths That Quite Honestly, We Will Never Get Over

When movies do their job, they are able to tell stories that make audiences become invested in the characters.

It's easy to feel for our favorite characters and want the best for them, and we often feel quite sad when characters pass away, even if they are totally fictional.

Here are 10+ movie deaths that we will never really get over completely.

Little Foot's Mom from *The Land Before Time*

Starting out strong with one of the most traumatic movie moments from childhood if you grew up in the '90s, this death was absolutely devastating.

The scene where Little Foot says goodbye is a lot to take in, and it's pretty heavy for a film made for kids.

Jack Dawson on *Titanic*

Jack Dawson was a charming, handsome, good character, and fans were super upset by his death.

It was made even worse because of the way he died and the fact that he basically sacrificed himself to save Rose.

Ruth Jamison from *Fried Green Tomatoes*

This movie is a beautiful story of female relationships, and while the movie made the relationship more platonic, it always has had romantic undertones.

So, when Ruthie passed away, it was super upsetting especially because of how it impacted Idgie.

Angel Dumott Schunard on *Rent*

Rent deals with some very difficult topics, but it also reflects some truths about a dark period of United States history and the pain and loss caused by AIDS.

Then, Collins sings the "I'll Cover You" reprise, and it's like a knife being twisted.

Tadashi Hamada from *Big Hero 6*

Big Hero 6 is one of the most underrated Disney animated films that deserve more love, but it's also one that's rather tragic.

Tadashi was such a kind, good person that he made a big impact even though he died early in the movie.

Han Solo and Leia Amidala from *Star Wars*

Fans of these beloved characters were devasted twice when first, Han Solo died in The Force Awakens, and then again when Leia died in The Rise of Skywalker.

Of course, Leia's death was particularly tragic because it was necessary due to Carrie Fisher passing away.

Tony Stark on *Avengers: Endgame*

Iron Man was such a central part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe for over a decade, and while he wasn't a perfect character, many fans loved seeing his growth.

It was upsetting for many fans who had grown attached over multiple movies to see him die especially when he'd finally found some happiness.

Grandma Tala from *Moana*

The way Grandma Tala's death was handled was beautiful in one sense as it spoke to ancestors, family, and connections.

However, seeing as how she was such a strong, loving, and funny character, it was super sad, too.

Jack Twist in *Brokeback Mountain*

This death is particularly upsetting because of how it happened and the context and reality of being a queer man in Wyoming in the '60s.

It was difficult to hear about and seeing how Jack's death impacted Ennis was also really heartbreaking.

Jamie Sullivan on *A Walk to Remember*

There's something particularly tragic about the idea of a young, promising life being cut so short.

Jamie, played by Mandy Moore, had a lot to offer the world still, and it was especially difficult given the reality of how many people pass away from cancer in the real world.

Marley from *Marley and Me*

Seeing a dog die in any movie is so upsetting to people that there is even a website dedicated to it so people can be forewarned.

But, one of the most tragic pet deaths on-screen was Marley's. After seeing him grow up, it almost felt like losing your own dog.

Ellie from *Up*

The montage from the beginning of Up is generally considered one of the most emotional from any Pixar film.

While Ellie and Carl did get to live a good life together for many years, the death was so difficult for Carl and for audiences.

Thomas J. Sennett from *My Girl*

Deaths that involve children are always particularly tough to handle, even if they are fake.

The line, "'Where are his glasses? He can’t see without his glasses!,'" is gut-wrenching and many people still can't forget it.

Fred Weasley from *Harry Potter*

Fans of the Harry Potter book series were upset when Fred died in Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, but seeing it on screen might have been even worse.

It was a huge loss for the Weasley family and especially for his twin brother, George.

Bambi's mother on *Bambi*

While children's movies are assumed to always be upbeat, this really isn't the case as there are lots of sad deaths from children's films.

One of the best known by far is when Bambi's mother is shot by a hunter, and none of us will ever forget that traumatic moment.
