The review of this Movie prepared by Katie Malone

Everybody knows the story of how an Indian princess named Pocahontas meets an explorer named John Smith when he lands in what is the present-day Virginia and the two fall in love. That story is beautifully retold in one of the most recent Disney classics. The animation is top-notch, something Disney has always done well, and the film is beautifully scored throughout. At the end, you'll hear Vanessa Williams sing the trademark hit song Colors of the Wind.
