Movie Info

For this animated direct-to-video sequel to Disney's 1995 animated Pocahontas, Irene Bedard returns to the title role -- with Judy Kuhn once again providing Pocahontas' singing voice. The story starts in colonial Jamestown before Pocahontas travels to England to meet with the king in hopes of preventing a British-Indian war. Her guide and companion is royal emissary John Rolfe (Billy Zane). They are attracted to each other, but Pocahontas yearns for John Smith (Donal Gibson, brother of Mel Gibson). After a conflict with the evil Ratcliffe (David Ogden Stiers), the missing Smith is presumed dead. Ratcliffe tells the king that the Jamestown Indians are savages, so Pocahontas enters high society, hoping to prove otherwise by presenting a civilized appearance at the Royal Hunt Ball. Ratcliffe schemes to sabotage Pocahontas' plan. New songs by Marty Panzer and Larry Grossman include the closing-credits tune, Between Two Worlds.more

Strikes familiar notes of how the true 'savages' are the Englishmen...but in the end, the princess gives herself over to an Englishman and literally drifts away in the wrong direction of history. [Blu-ray]

Groucho Reviews

The film's history lesson is too ludicrous to view as anything but comedy.

More romance than history, but kids will enjoy.

Because the first one wasn't historically inaccurate enough

October 28, 2005
Film Threat

A slapdash effort, with none of gorgeous colors and animation of the first film and little of its emotional resonance.

Audience Reviews for Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World

Surprisingly slightly better than the original but still rather bland. The songs are second rate but few and far between. For a Disney movie it must be praised for being rather brave by not having Pocahontas end up with John Smith. Again it is plagued by too much formula and not enough individual charm.

The first 20 minutes of this movie is the best, most moving part of the thing, but from then on it drags down to Yawnsville, with a much darker tone, hit or miss songs (the first one Pocahontas sings is beautiful, & the one the Jesters & Radcliffe sing was really good), & a somewhat rushed plot. The animation is still beautiful, surprisingly, & the colors are gorgeous (but still not up to par to the colors of the first one).

A grand dissappointment no doubt. The critics even thought that the first one was inaccurate enough.
