Week 6: Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World (1998)


*Spoiler Alert!* Who knew John Smith would somehow turn out to be a pompous jerk? Who knew Pocahontas wouldn’t end up with him??? I loved their love story in the first movie…so sweet and romantic. In this movie, I was glad he got his own ship and took off and that she ended up with someone else. The short moment that John Smith and Pocahontas get back together in this movie made me a bit upset because I’d already fallen in love with John Rolf and written Smith off as dead.

 Plot Summary: Pocahontas sets off on a journey to England with Meeko, Flit, and Percy. Hearing rumors of John Smith’s death, Pocahontas tries to prevent war and battle. (www.imdb.com)


 Fun Fact: Most of the bear sounds are real, but one loud sound during the “bear baiting” sequence was actually an elephant. (www.imdb.com)

 Favourite Character: Pocahontas. Also, a huge fan of her bodyguard.

 Favourite Song:

Where Do I Go From Here? (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UfTieVPjN7E)

 Quotable Quotes:

Treason?!? You must be looking for Radcliffe!

“I beg your pardon.” “Well, you have it!”

John Rolf: “Whatever happened to manners and etiquette?” Pocahontas: “Well, since you are new here, I wouldn’t expect you to have them.”

You will always be with me.

There are many voices around you, but you must listen to your own voice.

We walked the same path once, but I have found where I belong.

I have duty to honour what is in my heart.


 Final Thoughts:

Maybe you’ve walked the same path with someone for a while and then drifted apart. Remember that we each have our own path to take and we must listen to our own heart, our own voice, to determine our own path. When you find where you belong, you will know.
