"Pocahontas" 1995 is an animated musical drama and the 33rd full length feature film produced by Walt Disney, and it was released on June 23, 1995 by Buena Vista Pictures. The film was loosely based on the life of the Native American woman Pocahontas and portrays a fictionalized historical encounter with the Englishman John Smith and the settlers of Jamestown. The film was directed by Mike Gabriel and Eric Goldberg, musical score by Alan Menken, songs by Stephe Schwartz, and stars Irene Bedard as the voice of Pocahontas and Mel Gibson and the voice of John Smith. Supporting casts includes David Ogden Stiers, Russell Means, Christian Bale, Billy Connolly, and Linda Hunt.
Governor Ratcliffe, the main villain of the film, was wonderfully voiced by David Ogden Stiers (who also voiced Wiggins) who is most known for portraying Major Charles Winchester on the hit TV show "M*A*S*H*." This is a large and rare drawing of Governor Ratcliffe accomplished in graphite pencil. A fantastic chest up image, he is eyes open, and the drawing is signed by Rick (Richard) Hoppe; who was the supervising lead animator for the character. A wonderful drawing that is perfect for any animation art collection!
