Pocahontas - Virginia's Landscape
In the movie Pocahontas, they picture Virginia as having huge waterfalls and soaring mountains right beside the ocean. Well, I live in Virginia and the landscape beside the see doesn't look like this, especially in Jamestown!

I really hope the last person who commented about Virginia changing landscapes was joking. I mean...come on. I live in Franklin, VA and have visited Jamestown plenty of times. You will not find 1 cliff of waterfall like that, I promise. I mean, its lovely there and the river is beautiful, but Disney should have really done its research on this story. Also, in "real life" Pocahontas was only about 11 when John Smith came over but, oh well...

Well, the Disney filmmakers were not trying to make the landscape (or the story, for that matter) correspond to reality. In "The Art of Pocahontas," the art director Michael Giaimo is quoted as saying, "The best of what Disney has always done is to create an alternate reality. We wanted to create another world ... something that looks as if it could have been, but never was. I was after a Shangri-La version of Virginia, a paradise found."
