In real life, John Rolfe came to America in 1610 to give the English settlers tobacco in Virginia by making a tobacco plantation after he lost his first wife, Sarah Hacker, in Bermuda. In this film, Rolfe is sent to Virginia by King James and Queen Anne to accompany Chief Powhatan to London. See more »

This film would not have been possible without the inspiration from the original motion picture and the work of its talented artists and animators. See more »
As most animated sequels, one cannot expect much from the plotline, the music, or the animation. But, even with this in mind, I found Pocahontas 2, although having its moments, was quite disappointing, and a major contradiction to the original feature film. Most of the characters were two dimensional, and the depth and feeling of the first film was non-existent. The movie's short length also prevented the movie from going any further and explaining all the abrupt changes in character, especially the romance between Pocahontas and John Smith, as well as between Pocahontas and John Rolfe. For anyone who liked the original film, the sequel could be hazardous to your health.
