Pocahontas is the thirty-third animated feature in the Disney animated features canon. It was produced by Walt Disney Feature Animation and was originally released to theaters on June 16, 1995 to selected cities by Buena Vista Pictures. The film is meant to tell of the encounter between the colonists of Jamestown, Virginia and its native Powhatan tribe. In particular, it presents a highly emotionally charged and dramatic account of the meeting between Pocahontas and John Smith. Pocahontas is one of the very few Disney films to feature an interracial romance; also, although the actual story of Pocahontas does say that she travels with John Smith to England to meet its royalty, this film version has John Smith leaving and Pocahontas staying behind. from http://www. ...

Plot

In 1607, a ship carrying British settlers sails for North America in search of gold and other material riches, prepared for months of stay and with weapons to fight inhabitants that might impede their project. On board is handsome Captain John Smith and the greedy Governor Ratcliffe.

Governor Ratcliffe is a character from Disneys Pocahontas, based apon The Discovery s captain, John Ratcliffe. ...


Meanwhile, the Powhatan tribe has just won a battle, led by warrior Kocoum. Pocahontas, Chief Powhatan's beautiful daughter, learns that her father wants her to marry Kocoum. She is not enthusiastic about this. Pocahontas travels to an enchanted glade to ask advice from the talking tree Grandmother Willow. Grandmother Willow tells Pocahontas to listen with her heart. Pocahontas is the main character, title character, and protagonist of Disneys 1995, thirty-third animated feature, Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. ...


The settlers land in Virginia and Pocahontas observes from the bushes, unseen.

The settlers arrive to America, "The New World"

The settlers dig for gold under Ratcliffe's orders, as John explores the territory; Pocahontas follows him. He spots her and she begins to flee, but she remembers the advice to listen with her heart, and tells him her name. The warriors are also observing the settlers, but when they are seen, a battle ensues. The warriors retreat, and Powhatan declares that the white men are dangerous and that no one should go near them.

John Smith and Pocahontas get into a bit of a misunderstanding when John refers to Pocahontas' people as "savages." She sings Colors of the Wind to convince him that her people have a different kind of wisdom, but their time together is cut short when Pocahontas hears distant drumming, and she dashes off. Alternate meaning: Sing-Along Songs: Colors of the Wind Colors of the Wind by composer Alan Menken and lyricist Stephen Schwartz was the 1995 Oscar-winner for Best Original Song from the Disney animated feature film Pocahontas. ...


A few days later, John decides to see Pocahontas again. He locates her with her friend Nakoma. Pocahontas asks Nakoma not to say anything. Pocahontas and John sneak off to the enchanted glade where John meets Grandmother Willow and learns that there is no gold. John and Pocahontas agree to meet again that night, despite the danger.

Pocahontas and John Smith meet for the first time.

When Pocahontas returns to the village, some brothers of the Powhatan tribe have arrived to help them destroy the white men. Pocahontas tries to convince her father to talk instead of fight. Smith arrives back at the fort, and tells Ratcliffe that a native told him there is no gold. Ratcliffe believes this is a lie. That night, Nakoma catches Pocahontas sneaking off and begs her not to go. Pocahontas says she must. Worried, Nakoma tells Kocoum. Meanwhile, Ratcliffe orders a settler named Thomas to follow Smith.

John and Pocahontas meet in the enchanted glade. Grandmother Willow convinces John that he can help bring peace. Pocahontas and John kiss; Thomas and Kocoum both watch from the shadows, astonished. Kocoum attacks John; Thomas fatally shoots Kocoum. Hearing voices approaching, John tells Thomas to run. A group of Natives arrive, take John prisoner, and carry off Kocoum's body. Powhatan announces that John will be killed at sunrise. Pocahontas visits John and says it would have been better had they never met, but John says he would rather die than not know her.


Back at the fort, Thomas announces John's capture. Ratcliffe sees this as an opportunity to attack the Natives, hoping to gain their gold, and declares that they will attack at dawn. The settlers arrive as John is about to be killed. Pocahontas throws herself over John, telling her father that if he kills John, he will have to kill her too, and that this is where hatred leads. Powhatan is persuaded, and John is freed. However, Ratcliffe orders the settlers to fire anyway. Seeing that John's release is an act of peace, they refuse, so Ratcliffe fires at Powhatan himself. John pushes the chief aside and is shot instead. The settlers now see Ratcliffe for what he really is, and turn on him, and he is apprehended.

Pocahontas saves Captain John Smith from being killed by her father, Chief Powhatan.

Luckily, John is only wounded, but must return to England if he is to survive. Pocahontas and her people arrive at the settlement carrying baskets of corn. Pocahontas promises John, "No matter what happens, I will always be with you. Forever."

Release

Many at Disney had high hopes for the movie upon initial release. Then-studio head Jeffrey Katzenberg regarded Pocahontas as a more prestigious project than The Lion King, and even believed that it had a chance of earning an Academy Award nomination for "Best Picture," following in the steps of 1991's Beauty and the Beast. However, the movie was less successful commercially than was hoped. Because the film dealt with more adult themes and tones, the film did not appeal to younger children as well as earlier Disney hits. Though the stellar box office performance that The Lion King had previously enjoyed was expected for Pocahontas, it never materialized. Nevertheless, the film was still a box-office success, earning $141,579,773 in the United States and $347,179,773 worldwide. It also has the second highest opening theater weekend average and the second highest of all time for an animated feature[3]. Jeffrey Katzenberg (born December 21, 1950 in New York City) is an American film producer and Chief Executive Officer of DreamWorks Animation SKG. He is perhaps most famous for his period as studio chairman at The Walt Disney Company, and for producing the movie Shrek (2001). ... This article is about Disneys 1994 film. ...

Critical response was (and remains) somewhat mixed. At the Rotten Tomatoes website, it garners a 57% "rotten" rating among critics, but a 72% "fresh" rating among users.


Home video

Pocahontas was released in 1996 as part of the Walt Disney Masterpiece Collection. But when the February prototype prints came out, they used the 1989 Walt Disney Classics logo because they intended on making it a Classic, but never did. Then March prints used the standard Masterpiece logo when The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh was re-released on VHS. Pocahontas was released in 2000 as part of the Walt Disney Gold Classic Collection along with its sequel. Then in 2005, a fully restored 10th Anniversary special edition DVD was released.

Critical reception

The film's premiere occurred in Central Park in New York City. Over 100,000 people were in attendance; it holds the record for the largest movie premiere ever.[citation needed] Upon release, however, Pocahontas was criticized by many for presenting stereotypical images of Native Americans. Some felt, for example, that Pocahontas looked more like the black model Naomi Campbell[citation needed] than a Native American (although Disney claims she was modelled on the voice actor Irene Bedard, who is of Native ethnicity). The film was also criticized for its distortion of history, as John Smith was an explorer and never disposed to staying in one place for an extended period of time. Furthermore, historically Pocahantas was prepubescent when John Smith encountered the Powhatan tribe, and a romantic relationship between the two would have been highly unlikely and irregular. Further, the historical John Smith was a short, bearded man who in no way resembled the ruggedly handsome animated version. He was also said to be a coward, and on one occasion, used a Native American guide as a human shield during battle. Central Park is a large public, urban park (843 acres, 3. ...

Among many changes are the fanciful topography of Jamestown, which is located in flat terrain but in the film possesses massive cliffs and high ridges. Another criticism came in the form of Kocoum's mistreatment of his wife-to-be, Pocahontas. Her father wanted her to marry him, but Pocahontas did not want to marry him because of his stern face and serious attitude, though her father says that he will make a "fine" husband: he's loyal, strong, would build her a good house with sturdy walls, and that she would be safe from harm with him around. This is an example of an arranged marriage in a Disney film.

The film did receive critical praise for both the animation and art direction. The film utilizes very different colors than in previous Disney films, which resulted in a beautiful color palette from the Art Department at Disney. Colors that symbolized different emotions, such as red for anger/hate, blue for love, and pink and purple for nature were purposely used. The animators also decided to be unconventional when they decided to use the "mother spirit in the leaves" motif, which consisted of leaves floating in the wind during significant scenes in the movie that represented passion and beauty.

The musical score written by Alan Menken received two Academy Awards, including one for the song "Colors of the Wind". The movie's score is widely regarded as one of the most emotional and eloquent scores in an animated feature ever. Several recurring musical themes were written, such as "Colors of the Wind", "Listen with Your Heart", and "If I Never Knew You". Its successor, the darker, more adult The Hunchback of Notre Dame (1996 film) did not surpass the ticket takings for Pocahontas, but it was also controversial.

Changes

  • The first part of the song Savages received a slight change in lyrics before theatrical release. The original lyrics were:

What can you expect/ from filthy little heathens?/ Their whole disgusting race is like a curse!

After poor testing with the original highly inflammatory lyrics, they were changed to:

What can you expect/ from filthy little heathens?/ Here's what you get when the races are diverse!

As well as a line shouted by Ratcliffe, toward the end of the first portion of the song, originally being:

Let's go kill a few, men!

Was replaced with Ben exclaiming:

Let's go get a few men!

And yet another line at the end of the first chorus:

Dirty redskin devils, now we sound the drums of war!

Was changed to:

Dirty shrieking devils, now we sound the drums of war!

  • The Laserdisc release of the film revealed new songs as deleted scenes, including a reprise of "Just Around the Riverbend" before the song "Savages (Part 2)," alternate versions of "Steady as the Beating Drum (Reprise)" and "Virginia Company (reprise)," and songs called "In the Middle of the River" (sung by Pocahontas and John Smith) and "Dancing to the Wedding Drum" (sung by the Native Americans to Pocahontas). In the film itself, "If I Never Knew You" as sung by Pocahontas and John Smith was included, as well as a reprise.
