“Pocahontas” tells the story of a free-spirited girl (voiced by Irene Bedard) who wonders what adventures wait “Just Around the River Bend.” Pocahontas – along with her playful pals Meeko the raccoon and Flit the hummingbird – relies on the guidance of her loving and wise Grandmother Willow (voice by Linda Hunt) when English settlers arrive on the shores of her village. Her meeting with the courageous Captain John Smith (voiced by Mel Gibson) leads to a friendship that bridges the gap between two cultures and changes history.

Our Review:
Pocahontas is one of the very few Disney animations we don't already own. I remembered watching this in the theaters with my friends when I was in high school.  When I told my daughter about the movie, she didn't know anything about it. I didn't realize that she hasn't never seen the film. I ended up watching it with my daughter. I was surprised that after all of these years, I still enjoyed watching it. I thought it was a great movie. It was really great to watch the bonus features and learning about how the story board turned into such amazing animation. I especially like watching deleted scenes and trying to figure out why they were not included in the film. Included in this 3 disc special collection is Pocahontas II. In this second film, Pocahontas travels to England in order to prevent a war. While she was there, she puts her life in danger in order to discovered the truth. She learns that John Smith was still alive but falls in love with John Rolfe. While the second movie was not as exciting for DD as the first one. She enjoys watching Pocahontas transforming into a lady at an English Court in her attempt to appear civilized so that the King will not attack her people.

If you are a Disney film collector like we are, then I highly recommend adding this special edition to your collection. You can pick a copy here: http://www.amazon.com/Pocahontas-Two-Movie-Special-Edition-Three-Disc/dp/B0084IHVIY/ref=sr_1_2?ie=UTF8&qid=1345964191&sr=8-2&keywords=Pocahontas
