Why Anastasia Quotes

Anastasia is a 1997 American animated fantasy drama. The movie is a musical produced and directed by Don Bluth and Gary Goldman. Susan Gauthier, Bruce Graham, Bob Tzudiker, and Noni White collaborated as screenplay writers. The lead character in the movie is eighteen-year-old Anastasia 'Anya' Romanov, who suffers from amnesia. The character is based on the Grand Duchess of Imperial Russia named Anastasia Nikolaevna. The animated fairy tale is about a lost princess in her quest to find out about her deceased family. She joins forces with two con artists to pose as the Grand Duchess before Empress Maria Feodorovna. This film presents an interesting story about a brave and determined princess. Like most animated movies of the time, 'Anastasia' depicts how good wins over evil. The story also portrays the importance of morality and values in people, teaching children the significance of having good character.
