Stitch basically killing Pudge the fish in Lilo & Stitch Buena Vista Distribution Disney decided to cut this dark scene where Lilo and Pudge are viciously attacked by seagulls while Stitch just watches on, laughing. Lilo then buries her pet next to her parents' graves — it's all very bleak for a kid's movie.

This original storyboard — not so much. The terrifying scene actually shows Tarzan's dad being dragged away by the leopard, while a music box version of "You'll Be in My Heart" plays in the background. Chilling.

View this video on YouTube youtube.com The graphic death of Bambi's mum in Bambi RKO Radio Pictures You're probably thinking that Bambi was pretty sad already, but the original storyboards showed the actual moment that Bambi's mum was shot dead, and it's pretty violent, even in unanimated form. Scar trying to force Nala to marry him in The Lion King Buena Vista Distribution In this scene, Scar tells Nala that she must be his queen, saying: "You know, you really have no choice. I always get what I want," before singing a really creepy version of "Be Prepared." This scene explains why Nala went looking for Simba in the forest, but it's slightly too dark for a kids' film.

The whole film is packed with social commentary, but this was considered too much for the final cut.

Walt Disney StudiosMotion Pictures There were quite a few scenes cut from Frozen, but this one was easily the scariest storyboard.

Buena Vista Distribution We saw the aftermath of the Huns' attack in the movie, but in this scene, Shan Yu destroys the village, and even kills one of his own henchmen. It's some terrifying stuff.

Walt Disney StudiosMotion Pictures There were quite a few scary scenes left out of the final cut of Cars, but Lightning being surrounded by dead cars is probably the darkest of them all.

Buena Vista Pictures Distribution In this original early storyboard, Woody's nothing like the cowboy we know and love — he attacks Buzz and then insults Slinky.
