20 Surprising Movie Protagonist Deaths That We’re Still Not Over
It’s one thing to experience a movie death that you never saw coming, but when that character happens to be a beloved protagonist, it’s the absolute WORST. It’s almost like losing a close friend because these are the characters we can see ourselves hanging out with in real life. They tug at our heartstrings with their quirks and flaws and can deliver classic one-liners like it’s nobody’s business. And in many cases, they’re so relatable that we can actually see parts of ourselves in these characters.
It’s why we want to see them reach their full potential and get their happily ever after, but unfortunately, that isn’t always the case. Out of nowhere, we get hit with a death sequence and it truly feels like the world is falling apart. We’ve been through this process so many times before and, honestly, we still haven’t moved on from a lot of these movie deaths. We get the feeling that we’re not the only ones who are still grieving over these losses, though. See which characters we wish were still alive (FYI, there are spoilers ahead! Read at your own risk!).
