Trivia

The song "If I Never Knew You", heard over the ending credits, was cut after children in test audiences found it boring. Ironically, the adults in test audiences felt the song was too depressing. At the time, it was almost fully animated, with the exception of color. The unfinished sequence was shown in ABC's 1997 airing of the film. For the 10th anniversary DVD release, the animation was completed and the song inserted back into the film, as well as a short reprise in the final scene. See more »

Goofs

Thomas falls overboard and is rescued by Captain John Smith. As the other sailors haul on the rope, both men sink deep down beneath the stern, but the ship is still moving forwards so the drag of the water would keep them on the surface. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Chorus: [singing] In sixteen hundred seven, we sailed the open sea for glory, God and gold and the Virginia Company/for the New World is like heaven, and we'll all be rich and free or so we have been told by the Virginia Company/so we have been told by the Virginia Company/For glory, God and gold and the Virginia Company.

A mature Disney romantic drama
3 May 2005 | by aurelie_ledoyenSee all my reviews

I read the poster's comments (the one from Paris) and had to laugh, because I completely understand him. I went away for school in Europe in '95 when the film came out, and when I came back Pocahontas was the rage. You know, the way all Disney films were back then-there were commercials, songs on the radio, stuffed animals, etc....until the NEXT Disney movie came to dwarf it until a lame sequel or TV series came out. So let me tell you, I was skeptical about Pocahontas.

I saw this a year after it came out and instantly fell in love with it. It's a mature Disney animated feature- (in my opinion) even more mature than Japanime films I have seen. The love story seems very real-there is a sort of chemistry between the leads that you can feel.

The soundtrack is one of my favourite parts about the movie. Every song matches perfectly with the spirit of the time and place..a new world in the 1600's.

Finally..whoever had the idea to cast Mel Gibson(and Christian Bale) is a genius. Love those voices!

One aspect of this movie often overlooked is its dreamy editing. It is so consistent throughout and rivals many critically acclaimed films with great editing.

See it again, and remember: "You can own the earth and still, all you'll own is Earth until you can paint with all the colors of the wind."
