More romance than history, but kids will enjoy.

A very good movie.

This showed more character development and tied up loose ends left from the first movie. all the origonal characters from the first one as well as new ones come together to make this a great viewing experience. this is a great treat for all the Disney fans out there. even if you just like Disney its a great watch. on another note this is a vital film in the Disney canon due in part to the fact that Disney will no longer produce new movies based on their classic style of animation. yes disappointing i know but they gave way to only producing new projects with cgi. anyway when does part three come out? i hope its just as good.

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.
