If you are a Pocahontas fan, or a Disney fan at that, the Pocahontas 10th Anniversary Edition is the best edition to buy. It includes the previously missing/cut song "If I Never Knew You" integrated into the original storyline and artwork. For the skeptics, or those saying "how can one song make a difference?", I have to say that in this movie's case, the one cut song makes all the difference.
When I first watched the cut/edited version of Pocahontas as a kid, it wasn't my favourite Disney film, because I felt that something was missing. But, when I watched it again with the missing scenes and song, it elevated Pocahontas to being one of my most favourite Disney films. The powerful songs and etheral animation seems to come together more cohesively in this version. I choose to completely ignore the sequel even thought it's more historically accurate, because once you watch the 10th Anniversary Edition of the movie and see the love between Pocahontas and...
Okay, so I got the instant video version of this movie. That is good for the main reason of not having to replace it, because the movie will always be in your video library (unless something should happen like Amazon going out of business or something, but I don't anticipate that to happen anytime soon). You don't have to worry about the disc getting scratched, or worried about it getting lost or whatever. The bad thing about streaming movies is that you only get the movie with no options. I can't get subtitles, and there's none of the extra stuff that you get when you buy the disc. All you get with streaming is the movie itself, which I suppose is fine, but not if you're interested in the extra bonus materials. I gave it four stars for the movie itself, but took off a point because Amazon should be able to put the full content options that the DVD/BluRay has. It is 2013 you know! I'm sure they could.
A good release of Disney's 1990's classic coupled with its problematic sequel. The original is a sumptuous visual feast, coupled with excellent songs and Disney's trademark happy ending even if the historical account was more bloody. The sequel isn't as good but it probably will be harmless for most. If you don't want to watch it then simply stick to the original on the disc.The disc itself recycles the older blu ray and DVD release extras and while they are good, newer stuff would have been welcome. I guess we'll have to wait for Disney's 4K release further down the line.
