So I recently saw Disney’s Pocahontas. This wasn’t my first time watching this cartoon. I remember watching this when I was a little girl and it had recently come out on VHS. (That’s old, isn’t it?) Well, I remember this movie very differently. To me, as a child, it was so boring. Which is why I never really watched it again. (Except the second movie, I watched that when it had come out as well. On VHS.)
Well, I finally caved. And I loved this movie to death afterward. I thought it was beautiful and inspiring. It was amazing. And the characters were all beautifully made. But!!!!
Now that I’m an adult. I see things a little differently. I see the intense love that Pocahontas and John Smith had for each other. And I see everything that they both had sacrificed. And it brings so many feels, but then I remember that in the second Pocahontas movie, Pocahontas does not end up with John Smith and ends up staying with a different man.
I really have to rewatch the second movie but cause after seeing the first all I can think about is “Why didn’t you go with him, Pocahontas!!!??? Why did you trade John Smith for another!!! Why are you lying to him if you’re never going to be with him!!!?? You’re such a whore!!!! HE LOVED YOU!!!! HE TOOK A BULLET FOR YOUR FATHER!!!!!” (This is my inner child throwing a horrible fit because I am remembering a movie that I watched when I was really young. So she may have had a real go reason why she’s not with John Smith and I just don’t remember.)
Anyways, I’ll continue to cry on John Smith’s behalf until I see this second movie! Until then!!! Keep watching Disney!!!! ❤
