The Magical World Of Disney #90: Pocahontas II: Journey To A New World

Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World is a 1998 straight-to-video sequel to the 1995 Disney film Pocahontas. While the first film dealt with her meeting with John Smith and the arrival of the British settlers in Jamestown, the sequel focuses on Pocahontas’s journey to England with John Rolfe to negotiate for peace between the two nations, although her death is omitted from the film’s ending.

As far as a direct-to-video sequel to Pocahontas goes, it does manage to keep a lot of what made the first movie worth the watch. From an animation perspective, it looks okay, you can definitely see the budget here, the voice work is overall nicely done, there’s a couple emotional setpieces that surprisingly work really well but the overall story itself is just kind of a dull fish out of water story.

Overall, not very good but certainly not bad by any stretch, it’s just okay.
