Pocahontas Pocahontas- a crude and poor attempt of "disneyfication" of history?
The Disney animated "Pocahontas" is a clear attempt how Disney rewrites popular culture which is previously done in fairytales and myth (eg little Mermaid, Snow White). However the attempt to rewrite history in "Pocahontas" has miserably failed. The animation does not make up for the poor inaccurate storyline. Disney's idealist re-writing can commodify other aspects of popular culture but cannot challenge true history.
