This great movie won a lot of different awards, among them; they won two Academic Awards for best original song, and best musical or comedy score
The principal topic in the film is how the love and war combine into one. Being the first focus the life of Native Americans, their tribes, culture, and religion. And the plot goes around the fight between English people and Natives because they wanted to colonize their lands.
Nevertheless, the differences between the two cultures are reduced due to the love that John Smith (the captain of the English) feels for Pocahontas. Showing that both cultures can reach a consensus and peace between them.
In the movie, Pocahontas is submissive even though she is considered as a free soul, reason why the tribe blames her for all the things they are going through due to her relationship with the captain John Smith. The Natives believes that Pocahontas is breaking the rules and norms of the tribe.
Being said that the reason why the movie had negative critics regarding the story is because in the movie it is not showed all the damage and pain English brought to Native Americans. Bringing illnesses and death, destroying their religion, their people, and even their economy.
In this version of the movie, the real event didn’t happen which was the colonization of the Native Americans and all the negative things this brought to the culture. In fact, it only shows that with the relationship of John Smith and Pocahontas the love is, at the end, the only winner.
Despite all the modifications of what really happened, Pocahontas is a great movie with a lot of teaching. It shows the value of love and importance and that it doesn’t matter your status, your culture, religion, etc. If the love is pure you can do everything.
It is also a good way to show history to small kids, putting away all the wars and suffering that really occurred in the past.

We must highlight that this movie was the first one to have stereo digital sound, when it was commonly see soundtracks composed to work along with images but in this case, comics were supposed to fit with amazing compositions.
This way, producers would manage to create and amazing experience and call it an orchestra-movie.
This movie has 8 episodes that composes the whole essence of magic; Toccata and Fugue in D Minor, by Johann Sebastian Bach, based on abstract patterns, animated lines, shapes and cloud formations.
Nutcracker Suite by Pyotr Ilyuch Tchaikovsky, in which we can appreciate a delicate selection from the ballet suite scenes with changing seasons from summer to winter. With beautiful dances performed by fairies, fishes and some other nature elements.
The Sorcerer’s Apprentice by Paul Dukas, in this episode, the main character results to be Mickey Mouse, who attempts to do some of the magic tricks his master used to make. Thing is, Mickey doesn’t know how to control them and everything apparently gets out of control for him.
Rite of Spring by Igor Stravinsky. This time, this episode is based on the Earth’s creation… since it’s birth to the birth of all living beings.
Intermission: with a brief jam session of jazz music, we can catch up and return to the main orchestra presence with a humorous demonstration.
The Pastoral Symphony by Ludwig van Beethoven, an amazing episode based on a Greco-Roman world with mythical creatures performing at the time Beethoven’s music is playing.
Dance of the Hours by Amilcare Ponchielli, another ballet performance with characters who dance representing the morning, the afternoon, evening and the night.
Night on Bald Mountain by Modest Mussorgsky and Ave Maria by Franz Schubert. With evil spirits performing summoned by the devil Chernabog, these spirits dance and fly the sky until Angelus bell sound bring them back into the dawn.
