Pocahontas (UK VHS 1996)

Pocahontas is a UK VHS. This was Distributed by Disney Videos.

Plot

The Walt Disney animated version of the old tale of love, courage and friendship with a backdrop of the New World. Pocahontas is a Native American girl whose life, and that of her tribe, is dramatically changed by the arrival of a shipload of English settlers. Amongst them is the handsome adventurer Captain John Smith (voiced by Mel Gibson), who falls for the pretty young lady. Songs and comedy from cuddly cute characters mix with adventure and excitement to create a charming tale. The lowest point in Disney's opportunistic revisionism of source stories for its animated features in the 1990s, Pocahontas presents the title character (voiced by Irene Bedard) as a voluptuous Indian babe who falls for the British plunderer Captain John Smith (Mel Gibson). Half-baked if trendy paganism abounds in the film's depiction of nature as possessing consciousness (though talking trees certainly aren't new to cartoons). But the dubious legitimacy of the film's premise and characterisations calls everything into question. The songs by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz--while Oscar-winning--fall short of the standard Menken achieved in superior Disney predecessors including The Little MermaidBeauty and the Beast and Aladdin.
