Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World available on Blu-Ray today!

Walt Disney Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World action-packed animated musical adventure Pocahontas and Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World debut for the first time ever in vivid High Definition on August 21, 2012.

Combined also for the first time in a two-movie collection, the release allowed families and fans of all ages to own these timeless stories of hope, courage, and friendship on a Blu-Ray Combo pack which includes three discs of movies, music, extras, and more!

While I enjoy Walt Disney Pocahontas, I am not a huge fan of it’s sequel Pocahontas II: Journey into a New World, which felt very forced and choppy. The movies are absolutely beautiful! The hand drawn animation is just breath taking!

The two most enjoyable bonus features that I absolutely enjoyed were Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha and the “Little Hiawatha” Cartoon Short. Drawing Inspiration: The Lost Story of Hiawatha  is a fascinating behind-the-scenes featurette showing how Walt Disney and his team were once developing a full-length animated feature called “Hiawatha”, that ultimately influenced the development of Walt Disney Pocahontas. and the  “Little Hiawatha” Cartoon Short totally reminds me of Thanksgiving time when I was younger.
