Synopsis


Pocahontas
History gets the Disney kiddie treatment and a politically correct interpretation in the studio's 33rd feature-length animated movie, the first to be based on actual events and people. Pocahontas (Irene Bedard) is the daughter of Algonquin chief Powhatan (Russell Means), who promises her in marriage to Kocoum, a brave whom she doesn't love. Pocahontas would rather be paddling in her canoe or wandering in the forest, communing with nature and her animal pals, Meeko, a raccoon, and the hummingbird Flit. When European settlers arrive, she becomes enamored of handsome John Smith (Mel Gibson). Their attraction is encouraged by Grandmother Willow (Linda Hunt), a talking tree. The situation between their peoples is tense, however, as the settlers, led by Governor Ratcliffe (David Ogden Stiers) desperately want the gold that they're sure the natives are concealing. When a dutiful sentry, Thomas (Christian Bale) follows Smith into the woods on one of his secret meetings with Pocahontas, a tragic mistake leads both groups to the brink of war. Only the love of Pocahontas and Smith can prevent bloodshed. Pocahontas (1995) was awarded two Oscars, for Best Original Musical or Comedy Score and Best Original Song for "Colors of the Wind." ~ Karl Williams, Rovi

Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World
For this animated direct-to-video sequel to Disney's 1995 animated Pocahontas, Irene Bedard returns to the title role -- with Judy Kuhn once again providing Pocahontas' singing voice. The story starts in colonial Jamestown before Pocahontas travels to England to meet with the king in hopes of preventing a British-Indian war. Her guide and companion is royal emissary John Rolfe (Billy Zane). They are attracted to each other, but Pocahontas yearns for John Smith (Donal Gibson, brother of Mel Gibson). After a conflict with the evil Ratcliffe (David Ogden Stiers), the missing Smith is presumed dead. Ratcliffe tells the king that the Jamestown Indians are savages, so Pocahontas enters high society, hoping to prove otherwise by presenting a civilized appearance at the Royal Hunt Ball. Ratcliffe schemes to sabotage Pocahontas' plan. New songs by Marty Panzer and Larry Grossman include the closing-credits tune, Between Two Worlds. ~ Bhob Stewart, Rovi

    My 3 year old granddaughter should be the one writing this review but, since she hasn't learned to type yet (slacker) I will have to do. This is a typical Disney movie i.e. all the kids love it and most adults don't mind sitting through it a couple of times. Put this in your library for when the kids get bored with the other kiddy movies.

    Highly recommended to anyone who is a collector, or a Disney fan. Children will enjoy it, even if it's not historically accurate. It can be "historically" a part of any memory of what the Disney Renaissance was like.

    My 3-1/2 year old grand-daughter read a children's article about Pocahontas so we bought the DVD to supplement that. The DVD was entertaining but although lacking actual historical context it was entertaining.

    If you have followed the girls on their trip through life via the first 4 seasons, this one just improves on the hilarity of their situations. The characters continue to improve with each passing season.

    This movie is engrossing from start to finish. This is one of the excellent masterpieces from Disney's animated collection. The soundtrack is excellent with memorable songs. The sequel is also good with noteworthy songs.

    Pocahontas was a roller coaster for me, as the plot was so well written. I love how Disney actually decided to make a real person into one of their Disney princesses.
