If I Never Knew You
(deleted scene)

The song If I Never Knew You was originally planned for the tent farewell scene, when Pocahontas leaves John Smith to his (apparent) execution, but was cut out before initial release when test audiences felt it dragged down the pacing. For years the cut scene existed only as rough animation, which was included as a bonus feature in a few international DVD releases. Here are some screencaps of what the incomplete scene looked like.

The following were screencapped by Ainaweth (aka Jackie), thanks muchly.

The sequence was eventually restored and fully animated for the 10th Anniversary DVD. A few caps of the fully-coloured sequence are here.
