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.

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

What Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that Pocahontas is a music-laden love story that might be engaging to certain fans of the mid-'90s Disney character (voiced by Irene Bedard), but keep an eye out for the movie's violence and anti-Native language. Much of the plot revolves around two warring factions, so expect to see sharpening and brandishing weapons, fighting, and shoot-outs as well as frequent anti-Native terminology like "dirty savages" and "filthy heathens." This film is a love story, so main characters share kisses and close body language. This historical inaccuracy might leave viewers believing that the historical figure Pocahontas fell in love with John Smith in real life. She did not: She was an 11- or 12-year-old child named Matoaka when John Smith's ship landed.
