The concept: It was the first Disney film based on a real, historical character, but it fictionalized and highly romanticized the relationship between Native American lady Pocahontas and English settler John Smith. The reception: Although the film did well enough at the box office, it by no means lived up to its predecessor, "The Lion King," and critics panned it for its historical innacuracies and overall dullness. As good as: Sadly, this ranks fairly low for Disney's "renaissance" and doesn't come close to the quality of Pixar's least engaging films.
