Hiawatha 1

Hiawatha is an unproduced Disney animated feature film that would have been released in 1949.


Hiawatha was a follower of The Great Peacemaker, a prophet and spiritual leader, who proposed the unification of the Iroquois people. This proposed feature was considered to be taken in a similar direction as Fantasia: artistic but contradictory. It would feature a single storyline.

Artwork produced for Hiawatha would serve as inspirational material for Pocahontas in terms of color direction, character design and scene composition.
