Native American actress for ‘Pocahontas’ remake

Executives at Disney are set to milk these live-action remakes as much as they can. According to sources, next up on the list appears to be ‘Pocahontas’.

The Academy Award-winning 1995 film had mixed evaluations from critics and followers alike. They praised the computer animation and music of the film. However, many people resented the motion picture’s story and also racial overtones.

No doubt, the studio will attempt to prevent these mistakes this time around. Disney is currently looking for a Native American starlet to star in the titular role. It works as an initiative to stay clear of yet another casting controversy. Similar to the upcoming remake of ‘Mulan’, there’s a possibility that this feature will forgo banter that made both of the first flicks so fun. It’s unclear whether the studio will do away with the songs, which is what made ‘Pocahontas’ so remarkable, to begin with.

It’s also most likely that Disney will try to be much more historically accurate in this reimagining. The 1995 film played fast and loose with the truth. It attracted the displeasure of the community they were hoping to stand for on-screen. The brand-new ‘Mulan’ is allegedly trying to stick near to the real story too, though China completely disagrees.

From what we recognize, this film is still in the very onset of production. By the time it pertains to fruition years from now, the general public may currently burn out on every one of these remakes. ‘Pocahontas’ is, in fact, one of the minority flicks that is worthy of another shot though.
