The Spirit of Pocahontas was a musical show based on the film Pocahontas that took place in Fantasyland Theater at Disneyland from 1995 to 1997[1], and in Backlot Theater at Disney's Hollywood Studios from 1995 to 1996.

Show summary

The show creatively retells the story from the perspective of the storyteller Werowance and the Powhatan tribe. They bring to life the legend of Pocahontas. When Pocahontas is summoned, Werowance takes on the role of her father, Chief Powhatan. To represent the English settlers, members of the tribe don silver ceremonial masks. But the part of English adventurer John Smith calls for more than a silver mask. Werowance makes John Smith materialize from a burning campfire.

Throughout the show’s half hour, you’ll be dazzled by talented performers, clever special effects (including fire and wind), and the memorable score and songs by Alan Menken and Stephen Schwartz. In a particularly effective scene, the puppet face of Grandmother Willow appears on a huge willow tree to offer guidance to Pocahontas and John Smith.
