why did pocahontas dump john smith in the disney movie?
In the second movie John Smith didn't seem like he loved her as much as the first movie.
what has that got to with my question?

Pocahontas had thought that John Smith was dead:
"John Smith is ambushed by a group of soldiers with a warrant for his arrest and presumed dead in the ensuing confrontation; Governor Ratcliffe has lied to King James (being a personal friend of the King) and framed Smith as the traitor from the first film in a plot to declare war against the Powhatan Nation while avoiding punishment for his own crimes. In order to prevent this, the King sends a young diplomat, John Rolfe, to bring Chief Powhatan to England for negotiations. In the New World, Pocahontas mourns John Smith's death but is eventually able to move on."
When Pocahontas and John Smith meet up again, the romantic "spark" is long gone and John Rolfe is the one dearest to Pocahontas' heart.Source(s): Wikipedia

First off, these films aren't accurate in anyway besides for the characters John Rolfe and Smith. I suppose neither are excellent simply for the fact that Disney refused to allow any Aboriginal support. Many Aboriginal businesses came to Disney and requested in the event that they might be part of production, giving them notes on what to make the extra correct in portrayal, however Disney flat out mentioned no...Extra proving the Disney organization is a racist enterprise.

They had a brief romance in the first one; when they were separated it wasn't with any intention of trying to get back together.
She then heard he was killed.
It's no different than real life; people with immense attractions at first end up not falling in love permanently.
