Yes. Mufasa's death was powerful because it was the first major death on screen, but what made this scene harder to watch was Simba's simple and traumatic, "You gotta get up."
:cry:

I always found the part immediately afterwards when Simba realizes that something is seriously wrong, turns and runs off while screaming "help!" as much more impactful. Of course, the music that plays this whole time really doesn't help things here.

Yeah, the whole sequence is pretty brutal top to bottom. Gets me every time.

man, this scene in the remake in the remake is gonna wreck me.

Something happened to my dad a few months back (he had a ministroke). He’s fine now, but that made me realize just how fragile our lives are more than anything else that has happened in my life.

So Mufasas death in the remake will have a different meaning than when i originally saw the lion king in 1994.

Didn't even cry the first time. I rarely cry watching movies/TV.
