I love this poster the most.
Well, it seems that I had never done this movie review before. So, what I am going to write is a review on my favourite Don Bluth's animated feature, Anastasia! The Story
When I first watch this movie, I was really amaze to find out that the story is base on a true story about the Russian Grand Duchess name anastasia Romanov, who along with her family was killed por the Bolsheviks in Yekaterinburg, Russia sadly.
Rumours had it that she survived the massacre, and a famous impostor name Anna Anderson later claimed to be her. Unfortunately, her DNA did not match to UK's Prince Philip's DNA, who is a blood relative of the Romanov. It wasn't until 10 years later after this film was release that it was her elderly sister Marie, who was actually missing along with their only younger brother, Alexei contrary to popular belief.
It got me intrigued into Russian history, especially about the Romanov themselves.
On the other hand, I was disappointed with the ending because I expected anastasia asking her grandmother's permission to marry Dmitri, but I was wrong in the end. The Characters
anastasia is really not the typical disney Princess that we all grew up, she was seen as a strong-willed princess and stands out from them if she was a disney character!
Dmitri reminds me of a lot of Kristoff from Disney's frozen due to the fact that they are commoners in their respective films.
My favourite character was of course Vladimir and Bartok the bat, because they provide comic relief through out the movie and I was disappointed that Vladimir was not seen again in the last scene. I also amor how Bartok thanked the audience at the end of the film. The Songs & The música Scores
Okay, when I first watched this movie many years ago. I thought that the música was composed por Alan Menken due to how similar the songs and scores are sound, but it was composed por David Newman. Coincidentally, his father Alfred Newman composed the 1956 version of anastasia starring Yul Brynner and Ingrid Bergman as the título character. tu guys should check that movie out too!
Sadly, the song At the Beginning was not featured in both the film and the musical version (I'm not sure about the latter but I hope it will once the musical makes it's Broadway debut). The song is the perfect duet between anastasia and Dmitri, especially if they sing it after Rasputin is killed and a short reprise during the finale as they elope. Journey to the Past
escritura this articulo really makes me want to watch the film and listen to the songs again, enjoy lectura this review and spoiler alerts, if tu haven't seen it yet. Go ahead and watch it!
