Goofs

Pocahontas and Meeko safely diving hundreds of feet through the air and landing gently into water, which would've been as safe as jumping off a cliff onto solid concrete in real life. With Pocahontas, it's implied that it's something magical protecting her that ensures she dives safely, whereas Meeko survives because it's funnier that way. 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.

Wonderful musical from fictitious version of true story.
27 September 1998 | by Norway1See all my reviews

Though not entirely surpassing the Lion King this was some of the best music ever experienced in an animated musical. Pocahontas is the daughter of a chief who wishes to find her path in life. She feels it her duty to keep peace between her own people and the intruding British who are hoping to find gold as did the early Spanish explorers. She finds herself falling in love with one of these new visitors and uses this relationship in attempting to prevent a potential war. But can she stop the greedy settlers from their determination to find Gold, and can she convince her Father that they should try to live in peace with their new neighbors? You may be pleasantly surprised. Between the music and the animation Pocahontas is a classic Disney film that should be included in every video collection. Just don't expect to learn any hidden truths about American history. Take it for what it is.
