Just about everything in this lavish, animated feature is for the pigtail set.
Laura Shapiro, Newsweek  full review
 
[A] handsome, deeply felt, even more deeply reverent animated musical.
Richard Corliss, TIME Magazine  full review
 
Overall this seems like a reasonable stab at an impossible agenda.
Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader  full review
 
All Disney has really done in its disappointing 33rd animated feature is revive the stereotype of the Noble Savage.
Rita Kempley, Washington Post
 
The Disney artists have created a vivid palette for the picture.
Jeremy Gerard, Variety  full review
 
Why make a Disney cartoon and take all the fun out of it?
Owen Gleiberman, Entertainment Weekly  full review
 
Any damage such revisionist history may impose on young minds is offset by the honestly inspiring thoughts Pocahontas offers.
Janet Maslin, New York Times  full review
 
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.
Peter Stack, San Francisco Chronicle  full review
 
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.
Peter Travers, Rolling Stone
 
Adult viewers, spoiled by what has come before, may feel that this film, which relates the legendary romance between a chief's daughter and English adventurer John Smith in the New World, is more by-the-numbers than inspired.
Kenneth Turan, Los Angeles Times  full review
 
As for the songs, they're guaranteed to keep your shoes glued to the floor
Desson Thomson, Washington Post
 
Imagine a cult Disney cartoon, for this may be it.
Mike Clark, USA Today
 
Taking advantage of the studio's breathtakingly intricate animation, directors Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg have breathed vitality into this, the fifth 'new wave' Disney animated picture.
James Berardinelli, ReelViews  full review
 
Pocahontas is the best-looking of the modern Disney animated features, and one of the more thoughtful: It is about real issues, even if it treats them with naive idealism.
Roger Ebert, Chicago Sun-Times  full review
