Some of you may not remember this movie, but there was a great cartoon version of the story of Anastasia in the late 1990s. The songs were catchy, the story was well-written, and the actors were phenomenal. Now, this underrated classic is being turned into a Broadway musical.
The show’s website reads:
“From the twilight of the Russian Empire to the euphoria of Paris in the 1920s, the new musical Anastasia is the romantic, adventure-filled story of a brave young woman attempting to discover the mystery of her past.”
The movie follows Princess Anastasia who doesn’t remember her past, but she escapes Russia to try and find her grandmother. The con man she travels with hired her as an actress to pretend to be the Princess to get her grandmother’s reward, but she turns out to be the real deal.
I’m totally fangirling right now, and I’m sure I’m not the only one. I hope this play comes near me.
Here is the trailer for the 1997 film:
