3 Famous Father and son characters in movies




3 Famous Father and son characters in movies

Celebrating the premiere of The Secret of the Bear, a film in which a father and his son venture into the mountains to hunt for a wild beast, we like to present you with the three great father and son characters in movies. They prove that this is a bond that nothing can break!

Vito and Michael Corleone from The Godfather
The Corleones are maybe the most famous family in the story of cinema. This relationship is at first strangled as Michael, Vitos’ son, does not want to continue with his father’s line of business. Instead, he is a Marine veteran returning after WWII. As his father understands Michael’s desire, he wishes the best for him and encourages him to start a career in politics. After Vito is fatally wounded in an assassination attempt by a drug kingpin of a rival family, Michael is pushed into the mafia world he long avoided.

Chris Gardner and Chris Jr from The Pursuit of Happyness
These two moved more than one heart and made millions of tears run across the world in cinemas with their poignant story. The lead characters in The Pursuit of Happyness, Chris and Chris Jr, are the perfect example of a father-and-son team. When Chris is left homeless and with little hope, only the love for his son saves him. The salesman eventually becomes an intern stockbroker on Wall Street. As they fight for life in expensive New York City, Chris ultimately lands a full-time position and later forms his multimillion-dollar brokerage firm.

Mufasa and Simba from The Lion King
They are amongst the most famous characters in animated cinema. Their story also made millions of children cry as one of them dies, but the bond of the relationship between Mufasa and Simba taught a generation about parental love. These two are the protagonists of The Lion King, an ambitious animated production that tells the story of the natural kingdom with a lion as king. When Mufasa presents his heir, Simba, things start to go bad. Scar, Mufasa’s brother, devises a plan to dethrone Mufasa and become king. You all know the end but we still love Simba and Mufasa.
