Remember The Classics: ‘Anastasia’ and Everything You’ll Ever What to Know About It.

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? It’s well received, sitting at an 86% certified fresh on Rotten Tomatoes, and a 7.1/10 on IMDb. It holds a legacy as an Oscar nominated film and the historical feat of pioneering the “rich” history of the Fox Animation Studio… more on that later. The film has recently just become two decades old, and it hasn’t disappeared from relevancy. On the contrary, it just got adapted into a Broadway musical by the same team of Stephen Flaherty and Lynn Ahrens who earned the film its, “Oscar nominations for Best Original Song (“Journey to the Past”) and for Best Music: Original Musical or Comedy Score” – Adam Hetrick Playbill The film even a box-office success, earning a nearly a hundred forty million worldwide on an estimated fifty-million-dollar budget. 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.
