Some of the films, if rewatched as adults, have dialogues that seem to hit harder compared to when heard before from a child’s point of view.
Here are some of them:
The Lion King (1994)
“Oh yes, the past can hurt. But the way I see it, you can either run from it or learn from it.”
“The Lion King” had many lessons about growing up and acceptance, especially the concept of “Hakuna Matata” or as translated from Swahili, “There are no problems.”
Rafiki’s advice in the film can also be applied to many challenges in life. This can be used to get over a heartbreak or have unresolved arguments with loved ones.
Beauty and the Beast (1991)
“Well, it’s the usual stuff: flowers, chocolates…promises you don’t intend to keep.”
This was Cogsworth’s response to the Beast when the latter asked him what he could do with Belle, which could be an interesting take on romance and relationships in general.
The line is both a warning to one to be wary of big statements that people make, and a reminder to only make promises one can actually keep.
Toy Story 2 (1999)
“You never forget kids like Emily or Andy, but they forget you.”
Jessie said this as she thought about how her owner Emily eventually forgot about her.
The sentiment can be applied to those who are grieving and those who have lost touch with their old friends over the years.
It also applies to people who have failed to remember someone who considers them memorable or remarkable.
Star Wars: The Empire Strikes Back (1980)
“Do or don’t. There is no attempt.”
The words of yoga suggest that success and failure are the realities of the world.
His dialogue reminds adults that while there will be failures in life, these should not stop them from committing to their goals rather than keeping one foot out the door.
Star Wars: Return of the Jedi (1983)
“Your overconfidence is your weakness.”
This is Luke Skywalker’s response to the Emperor during the finale of the film.
It seemed like a simple line, but his words have more meaning in real life.
The line suggests that while self-confidence is important in preventing doubt from clouding one’s ability to do things, having too much of it can lead to failure.
This can cause someone to miss details, such as important instructions or additional requirements.
The Devil Wears Prada (2006)
“Don’t be ridiculous, Andrea. Everyone wants this.”
Miranda Priestly’s iconic final lines in the chick flick come as she tells Andrea how privileged her assistant should feel to live a life apparently desired by many.
However, her assistant walks away instead of accompanying her to Paris.
Miranda’s line is spoken after Andrea is successful while her colleague, Emily, fails to secure a place on the tour.
It shows how success can have a dark side, especially if it is achieved at the expense of others being dragged down.
