"I think the world would be a substantially better place if Pocahontas had never been greenlit. I don’t just say that because I dislike the film - I also view it as one of the two primary causes of the end of the Disney Renaissance, the other being Howard Ashman’s death. It being a completely irredeemable film just compounds things"
someone obviously can’t paint with all the colors of the wind…
technically, it was Hunchback that ended it. For all it’s “irredeemable” qualities, Pocahontas was an Oscar winning success that made more money than The Little Mermaid did. Not to mention if you view the film simply for what it is, it’s a masterfully put together tragic love story that Disney has since never had the balls to revisit.
