So, I found this post in my drafts 🤣. I thought it was worth posting!
. . .Okay, is it just me or are there other people out there that watched Disney’s Pocahontas and screamed at the TV when she fell in love with John Smith?!
Because YOU KNOW that history says she married a guy named John ROLFE!
And, you don’t want to believe that Disney is lying to little kids, so you just deny the fact that Disney was wrong all together. . .
So, you go around saying that your history book is wrong instead of the movie because you don’t want to be deceived like that by your beloved Disney Princess movies!
Yep, that was me.
UNTIL. . .
I moved to Oregon and went to the library just a few minutes away from our house.
I was browsing the kids’ movie aisle when I noticed a second copy of Pocahontas.
So, I pulled it out of place, and gasped at the sight before me.
THEY MADE A SECOND POCAHONTAS!!!
So, me being the responsible Junior in High School that I was, I borrowed the movie, came straight home, and binged watched the entire movie without telling Alyssa, who also hated the fact that Disney got it wrong. . .
AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT IS IN THE SECOND POCAHONTAS?!?!
No joke, they kill John Smith right off the bat, and introduce John Rolfe!!!
I was so happy! 😁
Then, it gradually shows John Rolfe falling in love with Pocahontas until boom—plot twist!
John Smith is ALIVE!
Then Pocahontas has to choose which John she TRULY loves. . .
Yep, best MOVIE EVER!
I love sequels that are worth watching, and the movies that are historically accurate 😊
Anyway, sorry you had to hear me rant, but Disney redeemed themselves in the end, and I’m satisfied now. 😄
Stay tuned for my next post. . .
