'Anastasia' Is Getting A Live-Action Remake & It's Going To Be Very Different

Prepare yourselves...

'Anastasia' Is Getting A Live-Action Remake & It's Going To Be Very Different Fox Animation Studios

If you grew up in the '90s, chances are Anastasia was one of your favourite animated films and although you considered the Russian royal a Disney princess, turns out she's actually not!

But that's not what we're here to discuss right now, what we're here to discuss is the fact that now, after an Anastasia musical has been enchanting audiences, a line-action movie about the the princess is on its way.

The thing is, though, it won't have anything to do with the original animated film!

This means that there will be no Dimitri...


No Vladimir...


No Dowager Empress Marie...


And worst of all, NO BARTOK!


The new film will be a reimagining of the tale where Grand Duchess Anastasia Nikolaevna finds a portal that transports her from 1912 to 1988.

Variety has reported that Anastasia will be played by Emily Carey, who played the young Diana Prince in Wonder Woman, and her father will be played by Brandon Routh, who is best known for his roles in Legends Of Tomorrow and Scott Pilgrim Vs. The World.


Production on the film has apparently already started, so we could be seeing a trailer for this new movie sooner than we think!

For now though, let's reminisce together and sing 'Journey To The Past'...
