* HeyItsThatVoice:
** [[Creator/ChristianBale The Goddamned Batman]] as Thomas.
** David Ogden Stiers (a.k.a. [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Cogsworth]], [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Dr. Jumba Jookiba]], and [[Series/{{Mash}} Charles Emerson Winchester III]]) as Governor Ratcliffe.
** Creator/MelGibson as John Smith.
*** And his ''brother'' replaces him in the sequel.
** John Kassir ([[TalesFromTheCrypt The Cryptkeeper]]) is Meeko.
** Billy Connolly as Ben, one of the settlers.
** [[Theatre/LesMiserables Judy Kuhn]] as Pocahontas (well, the singing voice).
** Grandmother Willow later becomes [[Series/NCISLosAngeles the leader of a team of federal agents]].
** In the Polish dub:
*** Pocahontas (speaking voice) is [[Anime/{{TekkamanBlade}} Star]].
*** John Smith is [[Film/TheMask Charlie]].
*** Thomas is [[Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame Quasimodo]].
*** Ratcliffe is [[WesternAnimation/ThePrinceOfEgypt Jetro]].
* NonSingingVoice:
** Pocahontas is voiced by Irene Bedard, but they brought in Broadway powerhouse Judy Kuhn to do her singing. Oddly averted with Mel Gibson, who was a much bigger star, and did his own singing, contrary to what you might expect.
** Chief Powhatan and Keketa, whose speaking voices are done by Russell Means and Gordon Tootoosis, respectively, BOTH have their singing done by JimCummings!
* TalkingToHimself: David Ogden Stiers voiced both Radcliffe and Wiggins. Thus, in the numerous scenes between the two, Stiers is doing all the voice work.
* WhatCouldHaveBeen:
** The animal characters were meant to talk but were made [[TheSpeechless mute]] in order to give the film a more "serious" tone.
** Prior to his death in 1994, comedian [[UncleBuck John]] [[PlanesTrainsAndAutomobiles Candy]] recorded a good deal of dialogue for a talking turkey character named Redfeather. Alas, the character was cut, not only after Candy's death, but also after the aforementioned decision to keep the animals mute was made.
** Lyricist Howard Ashman, who had worked on previous Disney animated classics such as ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' and ''Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast'', was supposed to write the songs for this film as well but died of AIDS prior to completing work on ''Disney/{{Aladdin}}'', and thus Creator/StephenSchwartz had to fill in for him.
** In the July 1995 issue of Disney Adventures magazine which promoted the movie, there's a behind-the-scenes section of pages that includes an early title card from pre-production. It features an early version of Disney's Pocahontas who looks much like Disney's Tiger Lily, with her eyes closed, head held up high, arms folded and surrounded by a few forest animals. This gives the implication that Tiger Lily might have been in consideration to be brought back, but under a different name and to fill in the eponymous role at one point.
** Governor Ratcliffe was originally going to be voiced by Richard White (who previously voiced [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast Gaston]]), but he was replaced by David Ogden Stiers (who had played Cogsworth in [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeast the same film]]) because the filmmakers felt that audiences would only think of Gaston whenever Ratcliffe spoke if White did the voice.
** A deleted scene reveals Kocoum was supposed to be a Gaston-like, overprotective guy who was forcing Pocahontas to comply to him.
** The deleted scenes from the Blu-Ray reveal that Wiggins was originally a lot more villainous, a lot less ditzy and eons more arrogant than the character we see today. He had a very condescending attitude toward the other settlers and displayed the personality of [[PsychopathicManchild an overexcited, childish rich boy]], dressing in full armor and grabbing guns from everywhere over the mere ''excitement'' of getting to shoot Indians.
