Christopher Daniel Barnes,
One of my first Jetlag animations, and I still have a soft spot for it now
I do enjoy the Jetlag animations, and while not one of the very best ones(Magic of the Snow Man, Little Red Riding Hood) The Adventures of Pocahontas:Indian Princess is better than their versions of Alice in Wonderland and Snow White. And I do still have a soft spot for it now. The animation is not perfect, with the colours in the want of more vibrancy. However, I really liked the music, Enemy or Friend is especially good, though Land of Pocahontas really draws you in with a great sense of rhythm(Land of Peace was lovely but quite as memorable), and the incidental music is poignant and fitting with the mood. The dialogue doesn't feel too over-simplistic or childish and is well meaning without preaching, the characters are more likable and less cardboard than Disney's for example and the story is engaging, swiftly-paced and moving, as well as being more realistic and I think truer to legend than Disney's. The voice work is suitably dynamic. Overall, I like it very much. 8/10 Bethany Cox
