Viktoria's father filmed her reaction to a famous death scene in a Disney classic.

For many people of my generation, the death of Mufasa in The Lion King was our first taste of heartbreak. What kind of god/animator would let something so cruel happen? And would Scar pay for what he'd done? I still don't know. I ran tear-stricken out of the theater in 1994 and never looked back.

[Editor's note: Not all children react identically to Mufasa's death. My then-four-or-five year-old brother Kevin saw this in the theaters. When Mufasa died, a slightly younger kid behind us asked his parents what happened. My brother stood up on his seat, turned around, leaned over and yelled "He's dead! Mufasa's DEAD!" and then calmly sat back down, having given this toddler the 411 on death.]
