Pocahontas, take two by LadyAraissa Pocahontas, take two by LadyAraissa
It feels like this took forever…but it actually only took four days. Apparently my internal clock needs to be wound again.

Let me just take a moment to say: I refuse to acknowledge the existence of Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. I solemnly refuse. The only part of this film I will not outright deny the existence of is the cream colored dress Pocahontas wears at some point. That dress is the only tolerable part of that movie—which doesn’t exist.

At least Disney acknowledges that she wore this dress, her deluxe one is based on it. I know I'm in the minority but I actually like new world, to me John Smith is just your average blonde as far as the Princes are concerned and therefore I count Rolfe as the Prince because he seems more likeable to me than Smith. I really think she should wear this dress as her princess dress,she'd get more attention. The only thing I hate about this is the powder which although needed at the time just looks weird.

I agree that the sequel is not only non-existant, but it's also non-canonical!

Even the Walt Disney Company feels the same way about that and most of the other direct-to-video cheapquels.

I think the only ones they count as canon are Return of Jafar (since it sets up Aladdin's TV series), King of Thieves, Enchanted Christmas (since it does show Ms.Potts telling how Belle gave them the gift of hope that would change), Return to the Sea, Dreams come true and A Twist in Time. Most of the others disregard the original such as Ariel's beginning which contradicts the entire point of the TV series or Belle's magical world which shows Belle as not planning any of the scenes in the film on her own.  I consider New World canon, but that is to the viewer and depends on who likes historically accurate films or not, I'll admit the first movie was good but Smith is too old for her.

I disagree with most of your points. NONE of the direct-to-video sequels are canonical and Smith was NOT too old for Poca in any way! >:(

In real life Smith was, in the film he's a generic blonde which is why I prefer Rolfe (aside from real life) he's more realistic than Smith, like Disney's other Renaissance  Princes (Adam,Aladdin,Eric and Shang), besides Smith was kind of jerk after he left at the end of the film, he never even wrote. If i had a lady in a distant land who never told me about their land i'd break up with him too. 

Disney may think that none of the sequels are canon but if you think about it a few actually are if you want to get into each Disney Movie series as it's own World that crosses over into the House of Mouse when they wanna go out.
The Little Mermaid 2 is consistent with The original  as we see how Ariel and Eric's relationship developed after the wedding and who doesn't wanna see that, Ariel's the only one to even have a kid (Melody) which makes her (fins aside) the most realistic princess as she actually started a family, and we even see how Melody prefers the sea to the shore. It never contradicted the first film at all (Ursula was shown as a portrait and referred to like no tomorrow), nor did it contradict the 1991 prequel TV series (which shows Ariel having ocean adventures alluding to Eric but she always misses him thereby making it canon)  infact it referenced it by having a merboy who looked similar to Urchin (possibly his son)
The contradiction in the World of The Little Mermaid is Ariel's Beginning, her first meeting with Flounder is when she is 14 or 15 listening to his music rather than finding him after he drifts from his "school". No mention of Ursula who was supposed to be at the palace around the time of Athena's death which was poorly done (why over a trinket why not a heroic death by rescuing Ariel?) so I consider Ariel's beginning an AU of TLM 

Cinderella's sequels  have consistency to her world as well, she returns from her wedding and has issues adjusting to palace life and actually trying to patch things up somewhat with Anastasia who did start to regret her actions after seeing the baker in Dreams come true. I'll admit A twist in time is more of a retelling of the original but it did show that eventually Dreams come true will happen (abit differently this time but hey at least Cinderella finally got her turn to not be plastic, now if they could do that with Snow White i'd be happy)

The Aladdin sequels are also all consistent Return of Jafar referenced the original and set up the tv series which in turn set up King of Thieves which concludes the Aladdin saga (the only set to actually get proper closure)

Mulan II: Shows us the post-war part of Mulan's life, which i'm sure fans were curious about


I'm now on the line on some of the other sequels
Enchanted Tales, Aurora's seems plausible but she was still a bit plastic, Jasmine's no.
Pocahontas II: Depends on the viewer's preferences of Smith or Rolfe, however she did go to England at somepoint no matter who you pick.

I agree. The only thing I watch is the part where Pocahontas gets ready, I watch the Hunt ball scene and then I stop right after the scene by the lake every time I "watch" the movie


On the side note, I'd like to wear such a dress at some point. It's beautiful, no?

I haven't seen this non-existant 2nd Pocahontas movie, but this is sooooo pretty. I love the texture work.

Admittedly, I could have lived without her hairstyle as well...I figured they could have come up with something a *little* better than just stacking it up like that? I've seen better hairstyles for that time period than that. Even if it was just curled at the back or something....idk. Just me. Her dress was pretty though, I'm not gonna lie.

IMO, John Rolfe was the only acceptable part. Even if he wasn't portrayed as the Tobacco Farmer he truly was (rated G for kids, after all. no advertising drugs!!) At least they made up for the factual errors regarding Pocahontas' love life.

I think the song she sings in the beginning also was redeemable.

As nice as that song is I’m of the opinion that it’s evil. It says “See, this movie will be fine. Just sit back and relax.” When the movie starts to suck you still hold out a little hope: that one song was pretty good, this has to be just a temporary lapse in quality. Then, before you know it, there’s only five minutes left and you’re hoping that those last minutes will be really awesome…and no, no they’re not.
