Pocahontas: 10th Anniversary Edition
Release Date: May 3, 2005

Ever wanted to see just around the river bend of this Walt Disney picture? Then whet your curiosity with Pocahontas: 10th Anniversary Edition. The two-disc set is loaded with bonus materials like a making-of documentary, 3 production featurettes, 9 deleted scenes, music videos for the Colors of the Wind and If I Never Knew You, games, trailers, commentaries and more. But the biggest splash this edition provides are two versions of the movie; the one released to theatres in 1995, and another that includes the song If I Never Knew You (performed by Mel Gibson and Judy Kuhn-the singing voice of Pocahontas) seamlessly animated into the story where the movie creators originally intended it to be.

Apparently, when Pocahontas went through its test screening, young viewers became restless during the rendition of this musical number. So the decision was made to cut the scene. Much to the delight of the storytellers and songwriters, the public (who have hopefully matured enough over the last ten years to sit quietly and be appreciative) can now enjoy this beautiful love song. It is also your call which version is the best, and whether or not you think they made the right choice a decade ago. Either way, fans will be pleased with this fully restored and remastered movie, which has been enhanced for 16x9 televisions, and offers Dolby Digital 5.1 audio tracks in English, French, and Spanish.

A direct-to-home-video sequel titled, Pocahontas II: Journey to the New World followed this movie. The Indian way of life and the world of nature cross paths in Brother Bear, another Disney animation. Smoke Signals, also staring Irene Bedard (the voice of Pocahontas), is a film about life on an Indian reservation and some of the challenges facing modern Native Americans.
