|The following is a reference / historical listing of the 70-millimeter presentation of Disney’s “Pocahontas” in North America. |
“Pocahontas” was among two 70mm “releases” during 1995 (the re-issue of “The Wild Bunch” was the other).
The Disney release was directed by Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg and featured the voice talents of Joe Baker, Christian Bale, Irene Bedard, Billy Connolly, James Apaumut Fall, Mel Gibson, Linda Hunt, John Kassir, Judy Kuhn, Danny Mann, Russell Means, David Ogden Stiers, Michelle St. John, Gordon Tootoosis and Frank Welker.
The 70mm prints of “Pocahontas” featured pillarboxed imagery (approximately 1.85:1) blown up from spherical 35mm. The audio was interlocked Dolby Digital. Four 70mm prints (plus four backup prints) were synchronously projected onto screens placed throughout Central Park.
Disney included a 70mm coming-attraction trailer for “Operation Dumbo Drop” with the premiere presentation.
