A young Native American girl tries to keep her people and the new English settlers from going to war.
Disney's 33rd animated feature is yet another milestone for the studio. It is the first to be inspired by a real-life historical figure. Irene Bedard voices the Native American heroine who wonders what life holds for her "just around the riverbend." MelGibson voices as English sea captain John Smith, with distinguished Native American activist Russell Means as Pocahontas's father and David Ogden Stiers as the gold-mining Governor Ratcliffe.
