The Jesters (named Harlequin, Lollipop, and Tricksy) are the three magicians and the secondary antagonists from Disney's 1998 straight-to-video sequel film, Pocahontas II: Journey to a New World, the sequel to Disney's 33rd full-length animated feature film, Pocahontas. They are Governor Ratcliffe's minions.
Harlequin was voiced by Jeff Bennett, Lollipop was voiced by the late Della Reese, and Tricksy was voiced by Corey Burton.
Role in the film
The Jesters appear as Governor Ratcliffe's minions who help him to fulfill his voluntary intentions. They appeared during the Hunt Ball singing to the people though they seemed to do things which are not what they appeared to Pocahontas. They perform a song while casting illusions and performing sleight of hand magic tricks for all the guests, but they end the impressive performance with a red smokescreen image depicting bloodthirsty and violent Indians. Soon after, they prepare to torture a bear in front of Pocahontas until she stops them, but also insults King James, Ratcliffe, and the guests, calling them the savages. This results in Pocahontas and her quiet bodyguard, Uttamatomakkin, getting arrested in the process for revolutionary treason. However, they are never seen again after that, not even when Governor Ratcliffe got arrested for his crimes. Presumably, they were also arrested for aiding the Governor in his conspiracy plot.
The Jesters are also known to be extremely duplicitous, manipulative, irrepressible, and lighthearted in nature. Despite their goofy ways in entertaining the king's guests, they are completely villainous, uncaring, wicked, seductive, and intelligent for doing something like torturing the bear, knowing full well it would anger Pocahontas.
They are the three funny-looking jesters with light gray skin, red lips, purple eyelids, black and white motley costumes, black shoes, lavender frills and sleeves, and gold bells.
Harlequin is identical in appearance and is possibly one of Lollipop's twins. He is a short, obese, bald man with puffy jester pants, blue eyes, and his black and white costume portion reversed.
He was voiced by Jeff Bennett.
Lollipop is the leading jester and the only female jester. She is a tall, slender woman with dark grayish-purple hair, plum pants, magenta sleeves, a lavender collar, green eyes, and a pointed black and white hat.
She was voiced by the late Della Reese.
Tricksy is also identical in appearance and is possibly one of Lollipop's twins. He is a short, obese, bald man with puffy jester pants, teal eyes, and his black and white costume portion reversed.
He was voiced by Corey Burton.
