The Lion King, a story that has been part of everyone’s childhood and continues to be passed on to the next generations, is a timeless classic. The generation who grew up with this Disney classic has watched the film over and over again, that’s for sure.

But admit it: you could not hold back your tears when watching the scene in The Lion King where Mufasa dies. It was a truly heartbreaking, iconic moment.

Which is why we totally understand Luna the pit bull’s reaction to the film. When Mufasa’s death scene took place, Luna stopped with her playing and watched intently.

According to Luna’s owners Josh Myers and Hannah Huddleston, Luna was part of a stray pit bull’s litter of puppies. Luna’s mother was rescued from the streets and was lucky enough to be put into a foster home immediately. Luna has eleven other siblings.

It was the Humane Educational Society who put up an Instagram account for the puppies and the mother dog to be adopted. Fortunately, Luna’s had enough traction to reach the young couple Myers and Huddleston.

Luna then began being part of the couple’s life. It all started during their car ride home, where Luna was wrapped around Huddleston for so long because of nervousness. After a few weeks, Luna has accustomed to herself to her home.

One day, the family was watching the classic Disney movie The Lion King, while Luna was also in the living room playing with her toys. Luna seemed to be very focused on her playtime.

However, when the scene of Mufasa’s death was playing on the screen, Luna paused and watched the film intently.

Luna even let out a soft whimper as Simba cried on-screen and laid himself down when Simba also did.

“Anything you feel, I can feel too.” 🐾So Hannah and I were watching the Lion King while Luna played wildly with her toys. But right as Mufasa falls to his death, she stops and turns to the TV to watch. To see her crying at the TV was the sweetest thing I think I’ve ever seen. She even lays down right after Simba lays with his dad….We don’t deserve dogs. 💚 4 months old and she’s already showing empathy. I can’t wait to see how she reacts to the new live action Lion King!*VOLUME 🆙*Follow Luna on Instagram! @luna_o_thepitbullFor licensing or usage, contact: licensing@viralhog.com ViralHog
