You all know the story, basically a teenage Pocahontas meets John Smith and they realize their worlds aren't so different despite their backgrounds. A classic Disney movie of the renaissance, Pocahontas didn't "boom" quite as well as the other movies, but it is always a staple in my re-watching of Disney movies. I was happy to find that this version comes with the deleted song "If I Never Knew You," unfortunately Disney did not treat the scene the same as the "Human Again" sequence from Beauty and the Beast Diamond Edition, and rather made it a deleted scene. However, it's great to finally have the scene in its full entirety, with commentary from the animators on why it was removed.
I don't care much for the sequel, and haven't seen it in years. The main purpose of this purchase was a blu-ray copy of Pocahontas, because I was slowly recollecting Disney movies to add to my collection. Since I no longer own a VCR, or have my VHS's from my childhood, these movies are the only way I truly want to watch them. I could watch them online, but instead I desire to own them since I watch them so much.
Highly recommended to anyone who is a collector, or a Disney fan. Children will enjoy it, even if it's not historically accurate. It can be "historically" a part of any memory of what the Disney Renaissance was like.
