Movie Series - Anastasia

Anastastia was a 1997 animated movie produced and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman at Fox Animation Studios. It was based on the urban legend of the last surviving member of the Romanov family, Anastasia. In the movie, Rasputin (voiced by Christopher Lloyd) puts a curse on the Romanov family, and they are killed during the Russian Revolution. Ten years later, Russia is under communist rule. An amnesiac orphan named Anya (voiced by Meg Ryan) goes out to St. Petersburg to find out who she is and where she came from. She meets Dimitri (voiced by John Cusack) and Vladimir (voiced by Kelsey Grammer), conmen who are trying to find someone to recruit to play the part of Anastasia so they can collect reward money from the Empress (voiced by Angela Lansbury), who seeks to be reuinted with her granddaughterin Paris. Meanwhile, Rasputin is in limbo since he did not wipe out the entire Romanov family. He is helped by an assistant, a bat named Bartok (voiced by Hank Azaria). Another movie, Bartok the Magnificent, was released to video in 1999. The movie told about Bartok's adventures before meeting Rasputin.

1 Not from the perspective of a writer. Like I said, Anastasia wasn't supposed to be historical correct. Lenin as a villian would have been very boring. Rasputin on the other hand, with his mystical touch, is a writers dream. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on March 3, 2010, 11:13 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
2 I've heard that Rasputin manipulated the Romanovs, but Lenin WOULD have been a better choice than Rasputin for the role of a villain trying to wipe out the last of the Romanovs. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on February 27, 2010, 2:49 pm - (2 votes) - Login to Vote
3 Everyone can think what they want about the Romanov Massacre. However; IMO, the only way there could be no 'real villain in history' would be for there to have been no order given for their execution and for all the bullets and bayonets impaling themselves into their human and canine targets entirely on their own! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 12, 2009, 2:42 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
4 I am not sure that there is a real villian in history. But I think they used Rasputin, because according to a legend he predicted that the Romanovs would go down if anythings happend so him. And in the end, his death did contribute to the revolution. -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 11, 2009, 6:23 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
5 OK, I stand corrected re Disney and acknowledge that Don Bluth did it. However; I stand by my stance re the cowardice of the animators to have Rasputin instead of Lenin being the villain (and yes, I know it was a fantasy cartoon but if they were going to depict the now-disproven possibility of Anastasia having survived, they should have at least attempted to stick to the real villains)! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 10, 2009, 9:08 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
6 @Pelirojo Well, we will never know how Disney would have done it since Anastasia is NOT a Disney movie...it's a Don Bluth production. But really, what's the problem? This isn't supposed a historical piece. The real Anastasia was killed that night (and she was already 17, not a child), the ones who turned up later were definitly fakes. The Tsar and his family got killed because he simply did a bad job. But who cares? It'S a nice little fairy tale (and the songs in the movie are great!). -- Submitted By: (Swanpride) on September 9, 2009, 6:34 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
7 Day One! No, I never bothered with it. Yes, Rasputin was undeniably a manipulative villain who preyed on the Imperial Family's desperate wish for their heir to be healed from hemophilia but it would have gone totally AGAINST his ambitions to attempt to wipe them out. Couldn't Disney have had the cajones to use the REAL villain- Lenin whom it's been since proven personally ordered their mass execution then faked that it was done against his wishes to the outside world?! -- Submitted By: (Pelirojo) on September 9, 2009, 11:19 am - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
8 I remember during the time of the direct-to-video sequel's upcoming release, they had a commercial trying to tell parents that the kids would love it better than Pokemon, which was wildly popular at the time. I'm sure you know what happens to shows, movies or the like that try to pass themselves off as better than a something that's wildly popular. -- Submitted By: (Robert) on June 14, 2009, 12:16 pm - (1 votes) - Login to Vote
