"Pocahontas" (1995)--Starring the voices of Judy Kuhn, Mel Gibson, and David Ogden Stiers, and many others.
Beautifully drawn, gorgeously colored, Disney film is more "suggested by" historical events than a factual retelling of history. Film briefly focuses on the British voyage to Virginia, then changes emphasis to the natives, Pocahontas in particular, and their/her unity with nature. Film contrasts the beauty/majesty of nature with the destruction the British bring to North America, in their zeal to find gold.
Kuhn, as the singing voice of Pocahontas, more than does justice to Alan Menken's original score. Her renditions of "The Colors of the Wind" and "Just Around the River Bend" are beautiful. Kuhn had sung in Broadway musicals, most notably as the leads in 1988's "Chess" and the 1993 revival of "She Loves Me" (information from ibdb.com).
Mel Gibson does a generally good job of voicing John Smith; his baritone is listenable but when he shifts into tenor range for his duet with Kuhn, his voice noticeably weakens and Kuhn has to be careful not to drown him out. David Ogden Stiers is appropriately hateful and amusingly greedy as Commander Ratcliffe in the song "Mine, Mine, Mine".
In the song "Savages" film shows plainly it's against racism and war, showing the Europeans And the Native Americans as both being wrong in choosing violence as their first choice to settle their grievances.
Pocahontas won two Oscars, for Best Score and Best Song (The Colors of the Wind).
Underrated film is very worth the watch. 3.2/4.
