Anastasia is a 1997 American animated musical adventure-drama film produced and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman. It was the first feature film to be released by Fox Animation Studios. The film features the voices of Meg Ryan, John Cusack, Kelsey Grammel and ect.
The idea for the film originated from Fox's 1956 live-action film of the same name. The plot is loosely based on an urban legend which claimed that Anastasia, the youngest daughter of Nicholas II - the last Emperor of Russia - in fact survived the execution of her family.


Story:
In 1916 Tsar Nicholas II hosts a ball at the Catherine Palace to celebrate the Romanov tricentennial. His mother, the Dowager Empress Marie Feodorovna, is visiting from Paris, and gives a music box and a necklace inscribed with the words "Together in Paris" as parting gifts to her eight-year-old granddaughter, Grand Duchess Anastasia. The ball is suddenly interrupted by the arrival of Grigori Rasputin. Only Anastasia and her grandmother are able to escape, thanks to a young servant boy named Dimitri, who shows them a secret passageway in Anastasia's room.

Ten years later, Russia is under communist rule...
Dimitri and his friend and partner Vladimir are searching for an Anastasia's look-a-like. Elsewhere, Anastasia, now under the name "Anya," leaves the rural orphanage where she grew up, having lost her memory. She turns down a job at a fish factory in St. Petersburg after her necklace inspires her to seek out her family in Paris, accompanied by a puppy named Pooka.
Anastasia, Dimitri, and Vladimir reach Paris and go to meet Marie. Anastasia quizzes by Marie's first cousin, Sophie, to confirm her identity. Dimitri and Vladimir had taught Anastasia all the answers, but when Anastasia independently (though dimly) recalls how Dimitri saved her ten years ago, the two men finally realize that she is the real Grand Duchess. Dimitri, having fallen in love with Anastasia, manages to change Marie's mind by presenting her with Anastasia's music box, which he had found after their escape. Anastasia's memory returns upon meeting Marie, and after using her necklace to wind the music box and singing the lullaby it plays.
The film ends with the couple sharing a kiss as they sail out of Paris with Pooka. A reformed Bartok looks on, and quickly loves a female bat who sneaks up and kisses him.

My opinion:
I saw this movie when I was like eight years old (just like ''young'' Anastasia at the begin) and I absolutelly loved this movie & I still do. Honestly, it's the reason why I'm interested about the Romanov family :)
