But the evil mystic of the Tsar family, Rasputin, still wants the Romanov family to be destroyed forever.Written by
The character of Dimitri was based on a European Prince, who vouched for Anna Anderson's identity as Anastasia. The Prince had only met Anastasia once and during her childhood, though, so he was not considered a very credible source. See more »
Throughout the film, Anastasia is often referred to as a Princess, while her proper title was "Velikaya Knyaginya". However, while the literal translation of this title is "Grand Duchess", it is essentially equivalent to the British title of a Princess, so it is a reasonably accurate semantic translation to English, which is the language of the film after all. In any case, Anastasia is also called a Grand Duchess during the film, which means that the filmmakers were fully aware of the alternative translation. See more »
Dowager Empress Marie:
There was a time, not very long ago, where we lived in an enchanted world of elegant palaces and grand parties. The year was 1916, and my son, Nicholas, was the czar of Imperial Russia.

I thought this movie (maybe a bit graphic for young children) was still charming. It was able to make me laugh and feel with the characters during the more heartfelt scenes. I thought the animation was beautiful, and the storyline was well-developed.
There weren't gaps in the plot, leaving the audience to suspend their disbelief and make up excuses as to what or why something occurred.
The music was not only memorable, but it had a range of style, including haunting melodies and catchy beats. And the singers weren't concerned with sounding like pop singers, taking the audience out of the movie, which I appreciated.
