Is It Any Good?
POCAHONTAS II: JOURNEY TO A NEW WORLD is an enjoyable film, beautifully animated and convincingly performed. But its romantic view of the story of a Native American girl and the English man she conquers through her honesty and beauty is somewhat grating, in light of the realities of what European settlers did to native populations in America.
Without some additional historical information, the film is just a sweet but pointless love story. However, seeing it is a perfect opportunity for children to start to learn the history behind the legend.
Did we miss something on diversity?
Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
