Pretty good for an animated film. Not historically accurate but when is Disney every historically accurate. I liked it but I wouldn't see it again.

Even if the story is pure fantasy, for a non-Disney film the animation is decent and the vocal talent does a fine job. Although it may not rank up there with the classics, it's a solid animated film - just don't go in expecting any kind of historical accuracy.

A Perfect Disney Duplicate

If I didn't know better, I would've assumed Anastasia was a Disney film. It perfectly duplicates the Disney formula, with nearly as much success. Containing all the ingredients of a superb Disney movie, Anastasia can't stack up with the best of animated fairy tales, but it's an enchanting film regardless.

Anya has been an orphan from the age of eight. She knows nothing about herself, and is determined to find her family, whom she believes to be in Paris. And it seems she just might make it to Paris when two con men (Dimitri and Vladimir) volunteer to take her there, under the condition she pretends to be the lost princess of Russia, so that they can collect the reward money for finding her. Little do they know what Anya actually IS the lost princess.

This is not a particularly origi...

A good, historically inaccurate, animated movie

"Anastasia" is loosely based on one of the greatest mysteries in Russian history -- the missing daughter of Tsar Nicholas II, the final Tsar of Russia.

"Anya" (voiced by Meg Ryan), who doesn't remember anything about her life before the age of eight, hooks up with two con men (voiced by John Cusack and Kelsey Grammer) to try to fool "Dowager Empress Marie Fyodorovna" (voiced by Angela Lansbury) into believing that "Anya" is her missing granddaughter, Anastasia Romanov, the missing daughter of the last Tsar of Russia. However, what they don't know, including "Anya," is that she is really "Anastasia".

However, the reincarnated "Rasputin" (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) comes back from the grave to complete the curse he put on the Romanovs and kill "Anastasia". He is assisted by "Barto...

A non-Disney movie, that is on par with the greats

The story and character acting is at least as good as the best of Disney's princess movies. The animation is a little behind Disney's for 1997. No matter, Meg Ryan, Christopher Lloyd, Kelsey Grammar, Angela Lansburry and the screenplay much more than make up for it. The scene when Anastasia sings "Once Upon a December" is amazing. Lacey Chabert is in this too. She's the singing voice of Anastasia at the beginning of the movie. She also does the talking voice of Anastasia in the extras segment. The true history of Anastasia is horrible and unforgettable. It always is disturbing to see the true history of a fairytale...entertainment built on a tragedy. I would prefer that the story's characters have different names and take place somewhere else. Although then, we wouldn't have the desire to...
