- Pocahontas is the only Disney Princess with a tattoo.
- Before Meeko, Pocahontas was supposed to have a talking turkey named Redfeather as a sidekick. He was to be voiced by John Candy, but the character was dropped when writers decided they wanted the animals in this film to be mute.
- Christian Bale voiced the character of Thomas in Pocahontas--which I SO didn't know until reading this article!!
So moving right along with the Disney factoids, this week's movie is Pocahontas! I remember LOVING this movie as a kid! Granted, my mother later--when I was older and after she took a course on Native Americans--pointed out the gross inaccuracies of the movie. Which I did later learn of. I mean I remember learning a little bit about Pocahontas in school. So it wasn't totally tragic. But still...Meeko was SO COOL!
