thedisneyprincess all night yesterday and now feel the sudden urge to watch all of Disney's classics again!
I never really liked Pocahontas as a child, because...hello?? They never ended up together! John left on a big white boat and Pocahontas chose her country over her love. How could Disney do that? Even in Avatar the stupid main guy reunited with his blue Naavi Princess...
And when Pocahontas 2 came out, I believe I was 11, I rushed to buy the VHS to find out what happened to them. Ce film m'a complètement déstabilisé, je niaise même pas. She goes to England to negociate with the Englishmen and prevent a war, and eventually falls in love with ANOTHER MAN. Very undisney-esque. So from then on, I never liked Pocahontas, if I wanted to watch sad endings I could simply watch movies for adults.
Pocahontas, like Mulan, existed in real life, her story is very interesting and many questions still remain about her.
Sorry to ruin the fun but she was in fact 14 when she met John Smith, and the two were apparently never lovers, the archives never stated so, but yeaaaaaaa it makes things so much more romantic... And she did marry Ralfe (the ugly dude from Pocahontas II, a redhead I think . ugh.) but many historians speculate that she did it as a form of alliance, again, to save her people.
Can you paint with the colors of the wind? Sad. So sad.
