Disney heroine Pocahontas sparkles with all the "Colors Of The Wind" in this captivating classic inspired by a real-life American legend. Fun and excitement are “Just Around The Riverbend” as the free-spirited Pocahontas and her woodland pals, Meeko and Flit, discover the first English settlers on the shores of their village. With the guidance and wisdom of her beloved Grandmother Willow and the friendship of the courageous Captain John Smith, Pocahontas must find a way to bridge the divide between the two vastly different cultures. With rich animation and Academy Award®-winning music, Disney’s Pocahontas is a fun-filled tale of adventure, friendship and courage that your family will cherish forever.

Critics Consensus: Pocahontas means well, and has moments of startling beauty, but it's largely a bland, uninspired effort, with uneven plotting and an unfortunate lack of fun.

Just about everything in this lavish, animated feature is for the pigtail set.

Fine for kids; just don't expect a history lesson.

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the dreamy, music-laden love-story might be engaging to certain fans of the mid-90's Disney heroine, but the violence is something for parents to keep an eye out for. Furthermore, the historical inaccuracy might confuse viewers who think that the historical figure Pocahontas fell in love with John Smith. She did not: she was a 10-year old child when John Smith's ship landed.
