Table of Content Introduction Overview/review Characters Rasputin Music and Musical Why Doesn't Disney Sell Anastasia Merchandise? What Happened to Fox Animation Studios? Animation Is Anastasia Historically Accurate? Conclusion Introduction It’s fair to call Anastasia (Don Bluth, Gary Goldman, 1997) a classic right?

Still, I just feel that despite the “success” of the film, this film garners the same amount of admiration as Disney’s more lackluster efforts such as Treasure Planet or Atlantis: the Lost Empire. That said why don’t we take a look and see if Anastasia has withstood the test of time.
