Truth be told – it’s starting to seem as though every Disney cartoon movie is getting a live-action remake, especially with the recent releases of Aladdin and The Lion King. While we have nothing wrong with that and are enjoying each and every one of them so far, it’s safe to say that we’re no longer surprised by more coming out. And rumor has it that Disney’s next project is a live action version of the classic Pocahontas!
It’s reported that it will be very different than the cartoon we all grew up on, and is believed to be in its starting stages of production. The movie is also reported to be going in a more accurate direction of the true story, rather than the slightly romanticized cartoon story that was portrayed back in 1995. For those who don’t remember – the film created some tension from Native Americans for having depicted history wrongly and about what went on between Pocahontas and John Smith. It’s believed that the two never really had a romantic relationship.
While the live action remake is all still a rumor up in the air, we’re already getting real excited, although it will surely take at least a few years before it’s actually released for public viewing.
