Moving can be an emotional time which is why filmmakers often add dramatic, funny, heartwarming, and even scary moving scenes into their movies. If you’re feeling anxious about your move, relieve some tension by checking out some of these moving scenes from popular movies.
Inside Out is a Pixar film centered around our internal emotions and how they work. When the main character, Riley, has to move with her family from Minnesota to San Francisco at the age of 11, her emotions begin to lose control. Check out this heartwarming scene as Riley tries to battle the unexpected surprises of her move by choosing to see her empty room as an opportunity and focusing on spending time with her family.
Cheaper By The Dozen
You may be on board with an upcoming move, but getting all the family on board can be difficult. Each person in the family can have their own reasons why they do or don’t want to move, but having to do what is best for the family and working through it together, just as the Gilbreth family does in Cheaper By the Dozen, may be your only option.
Mary Poppins contains a classic moving scene where Mary begins to unpack and settle into her new room as caretaker of the Banks children. If you’re planning to just move wherever the wind blows you, all you need to pack is an umbrella and a single carpet bag.
When Harry Met Sally
If moving weren’t stressful enough, moving in with someone can be even harder. Meshing two styles together doesn’t always end well. In When Harry Met Sally, a debacle over the looks of a wagon wheel coffee table in the new home of his friends sends Harry on a tirade about a recent divorce.
Who doesn’t love the excitement of moving into and renovating an old home? Tom Hanks and Shelley Long star in a whole movie about moving into an old home and all of the unexpected surprises that come along with it in Money Pit.
The Disney-Pixar films Toy Story and Toy Story 3 both have themes and great scenes involving moving. In the original Toy Story, Andy and his family are preparing for a big move and contentions between Buzz Lightyear and Woody almost prevent them from getting on the moving truck. In the heart wrenching ending of Toy Story 3, Andy is moving away to college and after saying goodbye to his family, he then says goodbye to his toys by gifting them to a little girl.

Movies don’t have the monopoly on great moving scenes.
