The Academy Award-winning animated feature, Pocahontas, is out of the Disney vault with an all-new, two-disc, feature-loaded 10th anniversary edition. Available in stores today, the release features two versions of the film and never-before-seen animation to accompany a new song ("If I Never Knew You") performed by male lead Mel Gibson.
Pocahontas is a musical retelling of the historical tale of a free-spirited Native American girl (Irene Bedard) whose life is turned upside down when she meets English settler Captain John Smith (Gibson) and strikes up a romance that will bridge cultures and change history. The voice cast also includes Christian Bale (Batman Begins, Reign of Fire) and David Ogden Stiers (Pooh’s Heffalump Movie, Disney’s Teacher’s Pet).
Bonus features include a making-of featurette, a development presentation reel, abandoned concepts, deleted animation, storyboard-to-film comparisons, animator insights on character design, a look at early test animation, scene production progression and footage from the film’s theatrical premiere in New York City’s Central Park. There are also set-top games, sing-along songs, music videos, art galleries, theatrical trailers and commentary by producer James Pentacost and directors Eric Goldberg and Mike Gabriel.
Fans can pick up the Pocahontas 10th Anniversary Edition for the suggested retail price of $29.99.
