"Pocahontas" isn't an A-movie in the Disney catalog, but it's a solid second-tier film that, despite its romanticizing of the "noble savage," nonetheless features themes that are wholesome and consistent with Disney's messaging.
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.
