Editorial Reviews

Barnes & Noble - Donald Liebenson
Children who wonder what awaited Pocahontas just around the river bend can find out in this produced-for-video sequel to Pocahontas, in which our spirited heroine sails off to England, where she will try to bring peace between her people and the settlers. Meanwhile, Radcliffe is already preparing an armada to reclaim Jamestown from the "savages." As Disney's produced-for-video sequels to its animated features go, Pocahontas II is one of the better ones. It has been handsomely rendered by Disney's B (or B+) team of animators. Irene Bedard reprises her signature voice role as Pocahontas, with Linda Hunt as Grandmother Willow, David Ogden Stiers as Radcliffe, and Russell Means as Chief Powhatan. Billy Zane is the voice of English diplomat and love interest John Rolfe, while Donal Gibson (Mel's brother, as John Smith) makes a climactic, nick-of-time cameo. The songs are less engaging than those in the original film, and history buffs long ago threw up their hands at such stories, but when it comes to mining gold from popular characters, Disney has no peer. Pocahontas still cuts an impressive figure and Meeko the raccoon still constantly outwits pampered pooch Percy out of food scraps. "Where do I go from here?" Pocahontas sings. The safe bet? Pocahontas III.

This would have been a perfect sequel... ...if Disney hadn't suddenly chose to be historically accurate and make Pocahontas fall in love with John Rolfe. I understand she married him in real life, but really? If Disney wanted to be historically accurate, why did they make her fall in love with Smith in the first movie? He was probably over 20 when he met Pocahontas in real life, who was around 10. Even my mom, who knows the real story, is disappointed with the movie. It seemed to throw everything that was in the first movie out the window and made it pointless. Other than that, the movie was pretty good. I loved the soundtrack and story...except Pocahontas' new love interest.

The first Pocahontas was great with amazing music but this was a true show of the sequal curse.

I loved the first one of course and Pocahontas has to be my favorite disney character ever next to mulan. anyway this is the sequel to the original and continues the story where Pocahontas must travel to England to bring some peace between the indians and the englishmen. John Rolfe is introduced and sadly it is true with what becomes of her and rolfe and not smith. the scene with the bear was cruel and glad that she spoke up. not all sequels are bad, this one was okay and at least put some truth into it what with john rolfe and all. but to be honest i'll always love the original pocahontas.

I think this movie has a great backround, but the music could be improved.

Wow, I was floored, completely and utterly floored. This type of quality movie is scarcly found on shelves. I loved every moment! Every head nod, every ridiculous smile, every pursing lipped character captured my heart and tossed it among strange floating purple leaves. I listened with my heart and found the true meaning of my life in this movie. And if you're listening out there grandmother willow, I have my mother's spirit!!!!!!
