Synopsis[edit | edit source]

Disney's most beautifully animated masterpiece boldly brings to life a fun-filled adventure of hope, courage, and friendship. True to the spirit of every Disney classic, Pocahontas became the #1 family film of the year -- bursting with "all the colors of the wind"! Along Virginia's lush tidewaters, Pocahontas, the free-spirited young daughter of Chief Powhatan, wonders what adventures await "just around the riverbend." In sails the gold-loving Governor Ratcliffe, with his pampered pug Percy and a shipful of English settlers -- led by their courageous captain, John Smith. Joined by her playful pals Meeko, a mischievous raccoon, and feisty hummingbird, Flit, Pocahontas relies on the lively wisdom of Grandmother Willow. A chance meeting with Captain Smith leads to a friendship that will change history, as the Native Americans and English settlers learn to live side by side. Featuring a #1 hit soundtrack that teams Academy Award(R)-winning composer Alan Menken with Broadway veteran Stephen Schwartz -- and an all-star voice cast -- Pocahontas surrounds you with the riches of "another glowing winner in Disney's animated hit parade!"
