This film was a great let down. For someone who is a big fan of Disney's and particularly of Pocahontas 1 this film was very disappointing. Don't get me wrong the songs and graphics are excellent as always but the plot was painfully poor and the writers have completely altered the personalities of the characters. Their actions and words often contradict ideas from the first film and their original personalities. John Smith and Pocahontas suddenly seem to no longer care for each other and in the end they go their separate ways. This of course completely ruins the storyline of the first movie, in my opinion they should have left the great classic to stand alone without the sequel. However I suppose that if you haven't seen the first film then this one could be enjoyable, but if you have then I would not recommend watching this one.

In addition the price would be a complete rip off for any film, and for one as poor as this it is practically robbery.

Bought this to replace the VHS copy I had. One of few Disney sequels I actually enjoy, and I like that there are bits of the true story in there (albeit mostly tweaked to suit the Disney audience, and not offend anyone - given that in reality she was about 12 when she saved John Smith in 1607, was captured by the English and held for ransom in 1613, chose to convert to Christianity, married a tabacco planter in 1614, had a child a year later, came to London in 1616, and died the following year - probably of a common cold - aged 21/22.)

Delivery and packaging as you'd expect from amazon, fast and secure.

Despite now being 19, I still love Disney movies. I'm really just a big kid at heart. My favourites are definitely the films of Disney's "Renaissance" (i.e. Tarzan, the Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast and Hercules). Pocahontas was one of the films released during this period, in 1995. As I was born in 1993, I didn't see this film when it first came out, or if I did I don't remember it. My mum didn't take me to the cinema until I was about 5 or 6, and I plan on doing the same with my children as I hate crying children at the cinema. I did really enjoy Pocahontas though, and I remember the first time I saw it.

I've wanted to watch a lot of the Disney sequels for a while now, and recently I bought a few of them including the Hunchback of Notre Dame 2 and the Fox and the Hound 2. Disney movies are expensive though, and even renting them is expensive (and the employers in Blockbuster judge you if you rent 5 children's DVDs without a child with you). I recently added the Sky Movies package to my Sky account for a month using my Ciao earnings, which were slightly higher than normal last month. This comes with Disney Cinemagic, who this week were showing Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. I scheduled it to be recorded as soon as I saw it on the planner and managed to find the time to watch it this morning.

Plot

Pocahontas tells the tale of a well known Native American figure, the daughter of a tribal chief, Pocahontas. It is a love story between a Native American and English explorer, John Smith and Pocahontas. Pocahontas saved John's life by stepping between him and her father, who planned on executing him. At the end of the film, John Smith is shot by another settler, Governor Ratcliffe, and has to return to England for medical treatment.

Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World is the 1998 straight-to-video sequel to 1995 animated classic Pocahontas. Beyond the original 1998 premiere video release, it was first released here on DVD in 2000.

Continuing where the first film left off, it starts off with John Smith in England having been framed by Governor Ratcliffe as a traitor, being ambushed by the King's soldiers. With John Smith seemingly dead, Pocahontas mourns him and moves on. From here the King sends young diplomat John Rolfe to bring Chief Powhatan to England for negotiations. Pocahontas is sent instead leading to her discovery of savage English behaviour and a choice that she has to make when it comes to her love for Rolfe and her love for John Smith who later returns.

As with most Disney straight-to-video sequels the colour is extremely muted and pales in comparison to the beautiful animation of the first film. Beyond the curiosity of what happened next beyond the first film, the story is quite weak in places. I do however love the songs, and think Judy Kuhn as the singing voice of Pocahontas does a phenomenal job. The standout song for me is Where Do I Go From Here? sung by Pocahontas- it's just a shame the animation doesn't deliver this sequence as beautifully as it could have been. Other songs include What a Day in London sung by Pocahontas, Wait 'Till He Sees You sung by Mrs Jenkins and John Rolfe, Things Are Not What They Appear sung by Radcliffe and Between Two Worlds sung by Pocahontas and John Rolfe. Some may be interested to know that Mel Gibson does not return to voice John Smith in this sequel, and that John Rolfe is voiced by Billy Zane. And the DVD soundtrack is Dolby Digital 5.1, compared to the original Stereo on video.
