Disney heroine Pocahontas sparkles in this captivating classic, available for the first time in breathtaking Blu-ray High Definition!

Fun and excitement are "Just Around The Riverbend" as Pocahontas and her friends Flit and Meeko find adventure at home and abroad in these sweeping stories from the earliest days of American history. This POCAHONTAS 2-Movie Collection delivers action-packed stories of adventure, friendship and courage that your family will cherish forever.|The look and style of the film were inspired by the filmmakers' numerous visits to Jamestown, Virginia, as well as by extensive research into the Colonial period.|At various stages of production, the creative team consulted with Native American scholars and storytellers to incorporate authentic aspects of the Powhatan culture into the film.|The movie won Oscars- for Best Score and Best Song ("Colors Of The Wind").|Pocahontas, whose name means Little Mischief, is based on a real historical figure. She was born into a highly sophisticated Indian culture that had some knowledge of Europeans.|The use of strong vertical and horizontal imagery in the design springs from the tall vertical shapes of the Virginia pine forests and the vast horizontal landscapes.

However, I only gave it 4 stars instead of 5 for the following reasons:
- The special features for the first Pochahontas are lacking. The 10th Anniversary 2-disc DVD set had lots of special features. The newer version doesn't even have the "Making of..." featurette which I liked in the older version.
- The case has one blu-ray (contains both films) and two DVDs (one film each), which is fine, but both DVDs share the same holder (one is stacked on top of the other). A lot of the other Disney Blu-ray & DVD combo sets have this same problem (Mulan & Mulan II, The Rescuers & The Rescuers Down Under, etc), so it's not just this one. I ended up buying a bunch of 3-disc blu-ray cases since a lot of the sets I bought had this same problem.
Overall, this blu-ray and DVD set is still worth getting if you like one/both of these films. If you're looking for more special features from the original Pocahontas, get the 10th Anniversary 2-disc DVD set instead.
It should be noted that both Pocahontas and Pocahontas II (Journey to the New World) movies are housed in one BD-50 disc, but neither film’s transfer is affected by the shared space.
Pocahontas (blu ray)(1995):
Pocahontas arrived at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.66:1 encode. It looks spectacular and stunning in high definition. Detail is superb. Each animation line is distinctly clear. The multi-coloured leaves, greens, and oranges simply pop off the screen. The rich greenery of the surrounding forest is something to behold. Pocahontas is full of lush, lively colours, rich primaries, gorgeous blacks, and vibrant contrast and clarity. Detail is exceptional too. The animators' line art is crisp and clean. (4.5/5)
Pocahontas II (blu ray)(1998):
Pocahontas II also arrived at blu ray with MPEG-4 AVC 1080p 1.66:1 encode. The animation is inferior and like Saturday-morning-cartoonish. Besides the inferior animation, the technical problem is probably due to budget restraint and inferior out-dated CGI technology. The colour palette is dull. Although the animation is clean, the presentation is totally unspectacular (2.0/5)
Pocahontas (blu ray):
The film's DTS-HD 5.1 Master Audio lossless mix is quite captivating. Each of the memorable songs is belted at lofty volumes that seem to surround the listener. Dialogue is always clear. Judy Kuhn's (Pocahontas' singing voice) vocals soar as the music crescendos. Clarity and fidelity are top-notch. Directionality and prioritization are first class. This gorgeous soundtrack earns Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz two Oscars in 1996: Best Original Score and Best Original Song in Colours Of The Wind.Read more ›
Pocahontas: 5 stars.
Pocahontas II: 2 stars.
