Posted on Jan 9 2013 at 07:22:24 PM in Visual Arts
This Disney Papercraft is the princess Pocahontas, based on the same named animated film, the paper model was created by J. Ossorio. Pocahontas is a fictional character and the protagonist of Disney’s thirty-third animated feature film Pocahontas, and its direct-to-video sequel Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World. The character and the events she goes through are very loosely based on the actual historical figure Pocahontas.
Pocahontas, as the daughter of a Native American paramount chief, is the first American Disney Princess. Pocahontas is also the first Disney Princess to have two love interests. However, most media, including the Disney Princess franchise, keep John Smith and Pocahontas as an official couple, completely ignoring John Rolfe. This is generally because Rolfe is exclusive to the direct-to-video sequel.
She is voiced by and modeled after Native American actress Irene Bedard and her singing vocals were performed by Broadway singer Judy Kuhn in both films. Kuhn also reprises the role of Pocahontas in the Disney Princesses’ single and music video, “If You Can Dream” and the original Disney Princess songs “These Moments We Share”, “Silver and Gold” and “Christmas Is Coming!”.
Pocahontas’ name means “Little Mischief” or the “naughty one” She is based on the real historical figure, and was born into a highly sophisticated Native American culture that had some knowledge of Europeans.
Pocahontas is displayed as a noble, free-spirited and highly spiritual young woman. She expresses wisdom beyond her years and offers kindness and guidance to those around her. She loves adventure and nature. In the film, she appears to have shamanic powers since she was able to commune with nature, talk to spirits, empathize with animals, and understand unknown languages.
In the sequel, Pocahontas seems to have grown after thinking that John Smith had died. She keeps her independent spirit and playfulness, but is much more mature and self assured than she was in the first film. During her stay in England, she nearly loses herself in the hustle and bustle of this new world and is turned into someone she is not. However, in the end, she bravely intends to sacrifice herself for her people’s safety and returns to her homeland, finding herself, and love, once again.
