Fact #90

Pocahontas was originally going to have 3 side-kicks: a hummingbird (Flit), a racoon (Meeko) and a turkey (Redfeather).

It was decided that three side-kicks would be too many, so Meeko was initially ditched. However, a humming bird and a turkey didn’t match well as side-kicks, so Meeko was brought back and Redfeather ditched.

Redfeather was to be voiced by John Candy.


Fact #10

Disney’s B team were put to work on The Lion King, because their A team were working on Pocahontas, which Disney predicted was going to be a bigger success.
