I love this movie. I’ve always loved this movie. It has such a great message, and is filled with such likeable characters. Sure it’s not ~entirely historically correct, but when has Disney ever been 100% accurate? Also, if you’ve ever learned the real story in school, you KNOW that it would not have been acceptable for an animated kids movie. Aha.
I do however like the message that getting along is better than having a war, and that you can always learn something from everyone, regardless of what they are to you, a friend or an enemy. I like that Pocahontas stands up for what she believes in as well. She is a great, strong Disney female and we can’t have too many of those. I think she represents a new generation of Disney ladies. Can you picture Snow White or Cinderella standing up to their evil stepmothers in order to get something they wanted? I can’t.
Also, I know I say this a lot, but the colors in this movie are absolutely breathtaking. I love all the blues and purples and greens of the forest. So lovely.
And since I always ask a question, lets go with music this week. I don’t think I’ve done this one yet. This soundtrack was one of the very first cds I ever owned. I got it for my birthday one year along with my very own stereo for my bedroom. Exciting, right? Hah. I LOVED this music so so much. So I wanna hear about your Disney music loves. I know it’s really hard to ever pick just one, but if I honestly HAD to, I’d pick When You Wish Upon A Star from Pinocchio. To me, it represents everything that is Disney movies, and Disney spirit. I absolutely love it. What about you?
