True to the film's idealized spirit, directors Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg similarly fend off history.

Though released during the Disney slump that came post-Lion King, Pocahontas was the last truly quality Disney animated film until Tarzan came along a few years later. It doesn't touch the aforementioned Lion, but a worthy part of your collection.

Disney's 33rd animated feature, and its first with characters based on real people, is a stunning movie with clever twists, vivid characterizations, insightful songs and a surprising harvest of revisionist history.

Disney's 33rd animated feature is so good that it deserves to follow in the beautiful footsteps of Beauty and the Beast and earn an Oscar nomination for Best Picture.

Disney deserves praise for raising the ante on its ambitions in animation. Next time, though, a little less civics lesson and a little more heart.
