Whether you are 10 or 40, animated films have a magical effect on every target audience, young or old. You'll always be a kid at heart and animation movies have the power to emotionally affect us. They can make us laugh and they can make us cry. Father's Day is just around the corner, and one of the best father-son animated films out there - The Lion King - gets a live-action makeover at the right time. No one can forget the equation between Mufasa and Simba in the film.

We still weep buckets of tears when Mufasa dies and Simba tries to wake him. However, it's his dad's wisdom that helps Simba throughout his life and also motivates him to become the rightful king of the jungle. Then there was also the father-son bond between Marlin and Nemo in Finding Nemo. To see the depths through which Marlin would go to find Nemo and their eventual reunion had us all reaching for the tissues. To celebrate Father's Day, here are memorable quotes by Disney dads:

1. “I’m only brave when I have to be, being brave doesn’t mean you go looking for trouble.” — Mufasa, The Lion King

2. “You wish and dream with all your heart. But remember, that old star can only take you part of the way. You got to help it with some hard work of your own and then you can do anything you set your mind to.” — James, The Princess and the Frog

3. “Seeing you gives me great joy.” — Chief Powhatan, Pocahontas

4. “Leave no shell unturned, no coral unexplored, and let no one in this kingdom sleep until she’s safe at home.” — King Triton, The Little Mermaid

5. “The greatest gift and honor … is having you for a daughter.” — Fa Zhou, Mulan

6. “You’re my son, Max. No matter how big you get, you’ll always be my son.” — Goofy, A Goofy Movie

7. “How do you know if they’re ready?” — Marlin

“Well you never really know, but when they know, you know, y’know?” — Crush, Finding Nemo
