Her powerful father, Chief Powhatan Russell Means , disapproves of their relationship and wants her to marry a native warrior. Meanwhile, Smith's fellow Englishmen hope to rob the Native Americans of their gold.
Can Pocahontas' love for Smith save the day? Written by Jwelch When Pocahontas originally came out, Disney's wave of recent hits came to a crashing halt.
The film was labeled as racist or at least insensitive to Native Americans and the goodwill that Disney had established with its audiences quickly evaporated.
You could say they have never been the same since. The "fearsome foursome" that is The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, and the Lion King has no equal, except perhaps the last four Pixar movies.
Pocahontas is not, unfortunately in that "club" and never will be. Disney spent the next four to five years trying to recreate the "magic" with films like Hunchback, Hercules, Mulan, and Tarzan.
Unfortunately, none of those films had the surprise and "good feeling" of the earlier Disney hits, and except for maybe Mulan, none of those films, as films, were as good either.
And although Pocahontas is and was the point where the schizm occurred, in retrospect, it's a pretty damned good movie.
So what went wrong? First, it wasn't the Lion King. They could have put out something "safe" after the Lion King, and it still probably would have paled in comparison to what was then a great big giant behemoth of a movie.
That movie earned over THREE HUNDRED MILLION in its theatrical run in - not as common then as it is now - thing was a juggernaut. Pocahontas, following on the heels of this bad boy, was not going to live up to expectations.
People blamed the fact that it was about PEOPLE and not animals, and that it was based on ACTUAL history rather than a fairy tale.
THEN they blamed the fact that the history part of it was botched and that the film's portrayal of Native Americans was at best insensitive, racist at worst.
I'll grant you that making Pocahontas' mentor a talking tree and having her learn English "instantaneously" because she listened to her heart is a wee bit ridiculous, but racist?
Come on. The message of the film - that love can conquer hate - is anything but racist and if anything, the film shows the "Indians" in a more human light than the English, who are their usual, stereotypical pig-headed selves.
Here's what else is good about the movie: The SONGS. Remember 'Colors of the Wind'? Could there be a better song about reconnecting with nature and valuing the earth more?
We NEED this song right now, especially, with the world seemingly sliding ever more into a consumerist "bliss," what better than to see some beautiful chick running through the forest teaching that rugged white man how to value LIFE?
And what the hell is wrong with that I ask? And what about some of the other songs? The one about the RIVER BEND and making choices - good stuff.
And the whole montage ending song that repeats SAVAGES SAVAGES BARELY EVEN HUMAN from both sides - showing that BOTH SIDES misunderstand each other.
It gives me chills when Pocahontas is running and you see the war superimposed behind her and she sings "HOW LOUD BEAT THE DRUMS OF WAR!
Don't we need this now I ask you? But, by far the best thing about this movie is - the animation. Then, after doing some research, I learned that Pocahontas was only the seventh animated Disney film based on a female heroine in more than half a century, and the first film based on a character of color, which I thought was intriguing.
My piece was intended primarily to look at how that came about. I did research into how the film was received at the time, and found two critiques of it from a Native American perspective—the statement from Powhatan Nation, and the op-ed in The Los Angeles Times, both of which I quoted in the piece.
The purpose of great fiction is to tell great truths. Ironically Gibson was the voice of John Smith in Pocahontas which was released the same year as Braveheart.
A little fudging is acceptable if done for a good purpose. It showed a strong woman making her own choices. Tariray points to a strong character who debuted three years before Pocahontas :.
Sophie Gilbert forgot Jasmine—a princess who outright refuses an arranged marriage and falls in love with a street rat. She also wears friggin' pants.
Oh, and in the cartoon series, Jasmine kicks some major ass because she actually knows how to fight. Pocahontas running to rescue John Smith.
