Pocahontas by Nay
“I’m really sad Disney changed the idea of having Percy and the other animals speak in Pocahontas. I know there were complications with John Candy’s passing since he was to voice one of Pocahontas’s companions. But I think the movie would have been better with talking animals.”
Although I love happy endings, I kind of wish Disney would make endings that didn’t end happy. I mean they should make bittersweet endings. Where even though everything turned out bad, it’ll be okay at the end; like how “The Fox and the Hound” and “Pocahontas” ended. This will teach kids that even though bad things happy, it will turn out alright.
I’m not Chinese, but I relate to Mulan standing up for what’s right even when everyone is against you. I’m not Native American, but I relate to Pocahontas’ love of nature and belief that anger results in bias reactions. Kids don’t see color. They see traits they identify with. And that’s better than wanting a certain race because reasons. I remember being a kid and fighting over who got to be Jasmine, Aladdin and Jafar during recess. I’m Hispanic and everyone else was Caucasian. No one cared.
I enjoy how epic Savages is, but it still baffles me that someone thought this was a good song to put in a kid’s movie.
