Pocahontas

The legend of Pocahontas is brought to the screen in this tale of two worlds that collided on the shores of America. Pocahontas is a young, Native American woman whose life is changed forever by the arrival of the English who have come to colonize the land. The English are lead by Ratcliff, a man obsessed with finding gold in the 'New World', and Captain John Smith who seeks only new sights and new adventure. Once they have landed, the colonists build the village of Jamestown--much to the dismay of the Native Americans already living in the area. A conflict between the two worlds seems inevitable unless a bridge of understanding can be built by Pocahontas and John Smith before it is too late for them all.

animated movie Pocahontas © DisneyA few months before its release the scene/song 'If I Never Knew You' was cut from the film. Disney's reasoning was that it "slowed the movie down" but the sacrifice made for the fidgeting little kids may have deprived the film of one if its more touching moments.

A decade after the film's initial release, this song was added back in. At present it can only be found on the 10th Anniversary 2-Disc Edition of the DVD. Note that it isn't available on the most recent DVD and Blu-ray release.
