New this month Continuity mistake: When Meeko follows Pocahontas by jumping off the cliff, he accidentally knocks Flit, causing the bird to spin upside down. But in a wide view of the cliff in the next shot, we can see Meeko but Flit is nowhere to be seen.

Continuity mistake: Early in the movie when Thomas falls overboard, John Smith ties a rope around his waist (00:02:56) and jumps in after him. Thomas is very far away from the ship (00:03:12). But when the men pull John and Thomas up, John is holding on to the rope with one hand and the end is left dangling (00:03:36). One of the men who pulled them up then coils the rope with a mere two coils (00:03:48), not nearly long enough to have reached Thomas while he was overboard. In the same scene, when we are viewing the men pulling John and Thomas up from above (00:03:38) there is no extra rope at their feet as there should have been for such a long rope.

Other mistake: Just after Grandma Willow says "There's still some snap in these old vines," John Smith puts on his bag, but he just presses it to him instead of putting it over his head.

Deliberate mistake: Many times Pocahontas's hair blows in the wind, even though nothing else moves in the shot. From the way her hair moves, the wind should be strong enough wind to move something else, but not even John Smith's hair moves.

Continuity mistake: Right after John Smith gets captured and is taken away, Nakoma grabs Pocahontas' hand, but when it shows the shadow of them they aren't holding hands. Then in the very next shot they are but it doesn't show them grabbing each other's hand again.
