Trivia: "Pocahontas" originally included the song "If I Never Knew You", which is now played in pop version in the credits.

Trivia: Pocahontas existed in real life and so did John Smith. When they met, Smith was nearing the age of 40 and Pocahontas was 11 years old. In reality they didn't fall in love. They were friends. Pocahontas later married another Englishman.

Trivia: Hidden Mickeys during the film: 1. During "Steady as the Beating Drum", right after the girl's in the field and right before the smoke bunny, there is a hidden Mickey formed by the clumps of trees. 2. Right after Naomi tells Pocahontas that her father is home, Meeko is eating berries. The last three berries he eats form the hidden Mickey. There is also one on the berry bush next to Meeko and Flit. 3. There are many hidden Mickeys in the water formed by the ripples.

Trivia: Pocahontas' name means 'Little Mischief" or the "naughty one".

Trivia: Before Flit, a turkey was considered as Meeko's companion.

Trivia: When Pocahontas and John Smith are frolicking in a field of sunflowers, three sunflowers create a "Hidden Mickey" in the background.

Trivia: Pocahontas is the only Disney princess to be based on a real person. Mulan, while a leading character and a real person, isn't a princess.

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.
