The influence of the double murder trial of O.J. Simpson is even affecting the animators of the upcoming Disney animated film “Pocahontas.”
While the film takes place during the westward migration of U.S. settlers, a drawing procured by this column definitely indicated the animators were thinking about the Juice.
The sketch depicted the film’s prime villain, greedy Governor John Ratcliffe, sitting crosseyed at the wheel of a white Ford Bronco, holding a gun to his head, with other pilgrim-like, gun-toting characters in hot pursuit. The caption said, “Get him!”
Buzz can only describe the sketch because of possible legal repercussions from Disney if the picture were published.
