Pocahontasposter

Pocahontas was a planned live-action Disney adaptation based on the 1995 Walt Disney Animation Studios film of the same name. It would have been composed by Alan Menken and directed by Mike Gabriel.



Plot[]

It would have followed the tale of a Native American woman named Pocahontas, who falls for an Englishman who has come to invade her homeland. Same as the original.



Why It Was Cancelled[]

  1. In a 2019 interview with first Pocahontas composer Alan Menken, he said "I don't know if we'll ever be able to do a live-action Pocahontas, I think that story is going to be difficult. With modern sensibilities, it'd be hard - you're going to offend somebody - so I don't know."



Results[]

  • The live-action Pocahontas film was permanently cancelled.
  • Pocahontas remains as a duology with only two animated films, the first Pocahontas film and its 1998 sequel, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World.
