Past - Disney's Pocahontas is loosely based on the real-life Native American princess whose name was Matoaka (Pocahontas was her nickname and meant 'Little Mischief'). She falls in love with a man named John Smith, who helps her prevent a war from commencing between their people. (JaDangerz, 2010)
It wouldn’t be Halloween without spotting at least five different Disney character costumes – at least. Disney has managed to take over a lot of things, and Halloween is definitely one of them, with cartoon character costumes and princess outfits regular fan favorites. It doesn’t matter how many years in a row you see girls dressed up as Ariel from The Little Mermaid or a sexy version of Belle from Beauty and the Beast or a racist version of Pocahontas.
