Though it may just seem to be simply an animated movie, Anastasia has impacted the lives of many people. 

In 1997 an iconic movie was born. Produced by Fox studios, rather than Disney, Anastasia was an animated princess movie that inspired many kids and taught them that they could be royalty while being brave, strong and powerful woman that speaks her mind unlike previous Disney produced princess movies such as Snow White and the Seven Dwarves, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and The Little Mermaid. Anya, the protagonist  of the film, proved to be a strong, independent, leading lady. Stubborn and strong minded,  she showed kids they did not have to fit the “perfect” princess stereotype and could fight for what they believed in. With an Academy Award nomination for “Best Original Musical or Comedy Score”, Anastasia became a pop sensation encapturing the hearts of many.

In 2017, Anastasia was revived in the form of a Broadway musical starring Christy Altomare and Derek Klena. The musical quickly became a fan favorite due to the number of fans from the original movie as well as many new musical fans. Many new younger fans were introduced to the animated classic, and the movie became popular once more. 

Recently, Netflix has made the decision to remove Anastasia from their streaming network. On March 1, 2018 the film will be removed from the site and there has yet to be any news of its return. Though this may not seem like a big deal, due to the decline in dvd popularity, Netflix was one of the only places people could stream the movie. By removing this film, younger generations will no longer be able to watch Anastasia, and the animated classic that captured so many of our hearts could become long forgotten.
