* ''Babar the movie'', the first Babar animated film with theatrical release premiered a few months after the 1989's [[WesternAnimation/{{Babar}} animated series]] is much darker than the series and includes things like rhinos pillaging and burning down villages, separating children from their mothers (and throwing one of them into a water well), using elephants as slave labor to build pyramids and planning a genocide on Elephantland. The animated series had some pretty harsh stuff (like Babar's mom being shot dead) but in general was a more lighthearted comedy with rhinos as more comedic antagonists than evil slavers.

** The teaser for the third ''WesternAnimation/{{Cars}}'' installment is substantially grittier than the rest of the franchise since it revolves around a life-changing car crash that its protagonist, Lightning McQueen, gets into. The color palette is [[RealIsBrown washed-out grey]], the CGI looks a lot more realistic, and the cartoonish faces of the cars themselves are nowhere to be seen. The whole thing actually has more in common with a PublicServiceAnnouncement about car safety than it does a Pixar movie.

** A good portion of ''WesternAnimation/WallE'' takes place in a [[CrapsackWorld dark, trashed covered]] earth. Not to mention the main character is completely alone. His only company is a cockroach. He then finds himself on a [[CrapsaccharineWorld colorful starship]] full of apathetic obese people.

** ''Disney/LiloAndStitch'' and ''Lilo and Stitch 2: Stich has a Glitch'' revolve almost entirely around AdultFear. Additionally the primary theme is grief and loss and most of the characters are major [[TheWoobie woobies.]]

** ''Disney/{{Frozen}}'' is a major, major contender for this, despite having a bodycount of only 2 minor characters (the King and Queen), and the villains punished justly without death. The film features childhood trauma, dead parents, murderous noblemen, a comic relief character that spends the movie dreaming about what would kill him, and the entire cast nearly dying [[spoiler:in a massive snowstorm near the end]].
