1995's ''Pocahontas'' is the 33rd entry in the Franchise/DisneyAnimatedCanon. It is [[VeryLooselyBasedOnATrueStory inspired by true events]], specifically by John Smith's rewrite of Pocahontas' life, which she herself vehemently denied. It takes the old legend of the Native American princess who supposedly saved the life of Englishman John Smith and turns it into a musical with few roots in the historical record, giving Pocahontas a significant age upgrade as well as romantic interest in John Smith. It literally has more [[{{Pun}} roots]] in fantasy, in fact a supporting character is a talking willow tree.

The film centers around RebelliousPrincess Pocahontas, who has been promised to the best warrior of the tribe by her father Chief Powhatan, but she senses she has a greater purpose in life than this. When English settlers arrive to form the Jamestown colony, she meets the idealistic John Smith, the one member of the group who is interested more in adventure and the beauty of the land than the gold said to lie in it, which Governor Ratcliffe exhorts the others to dig up. Each an outcast among his/her own people, they fall in love.

* ShownTheirWork: HollywoodHistory aside, the film does give a surprisingly accurate portrayal of Native American life for the time period.

* InnocentBigot: John Smith at first. He talks about how amazing it will be to bring the advances of the British Empire over to the Virginia Colony and teach the natives to live and use the land "properly." Pocahontas is not impressed. Also combined with DiggingYourselfDeeper.
