This film has a rather fascinating behind the scenes history, though.[[note]]Basically, this movie was never actually made or conceived by Disney. The premise and poster were a joke used by Lindsay Ellis (WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick) in her 5 Least Awful Disney Animated Sequels video to parody the Disneyfication of real events (such as ''Disney/{{Pocahontas}}''), and serious-toned stories (such as ''Disney/TheHunchbackOfNotreDame''). All the names of real people associated with this movie are only used as satire. In short, there is no actual ''Disney's Anne Frank'' movie, and this page is JustForFun.[[/note]] Please keep the sensitive nature of this topic in mind.[[note]]Feel free to add whatever you'd like, but the tone should be that of a sincere, but extremely misguided, effort by a studio that didn't think too hard about the UnfortunateImplications. And the number of characters, songs, etc, should be within the limits of an animated film. Otherwise, anything goes. Remember, this whole thing's just for fun -- the film itself doesn't even exist. It was meant as a joke on the part of WebVideo/TheNostalgiaChick. We just took it and ran with it.[[/note]]

* BigLippedAlligatorMoment: When Miep tries to cheer up Anne when her birthday turned out to be very disappointing, she leads into a big band musical number with a DisneyAcidSequence going on in the background. The whole thing is loud and bombastic to make Anne happy and flies directly into the face of the fact that at the start of the movie, Anne's father '''clearly''' stated that they had to try to be as quiet as possible.[[invoked]]

* TalkingToHimself: Creator/JimCummings plays both of Anne's parents.
* TheyJustDidntCare: The accents. Goodness, the accents.[[invoked]]
** Molly Ringwald seems to have donned an accent akin to Creator/JeanClaudeVanDamme. She was a known Francophile, and thought it could add some verisimilitude to her performance.

** One of Mel Brooks' contributions (that was never used eventually) was a version of [[Film/TheProducers the trope namer]] being sung by various townspeople in the opening credits, concluding with the Frank family themselves.

** [[Film/TheProducers Springtime for Hitler]] was originally in the [[DevelopmentHell Second]] Creator/HarlanEllison version of the script. And he wanted it to be sung by A NAZI Creator/BrianBlessed! It eventually made it into the final film, albeit under different circumstances (see above).

* NoSwastikas: All swastikas are replaced by black X's, including the one on Sgt. Olga's sleeve. The word "Nazi" is absent, except (weirdly) in the song numbers -- most notably "Free Again". The X's may be a reference to ''TheGreatDictator'', another movie that treats the holocaust in a humorous fashion, albeit much more successfully.

** Originally, Sgt. Olga was supposed to [[BreakTheBeliever realize that she was wrong and what she had done was evil,]] and then decide she was beyond forgiveness and [[DrivenToSuicide commit suicide by throwing herself into the well of souls who's deaths she contributed to,]] but [[ExecutiveMeddling the producers decided that be too dark for a Disney movie,]] and cut out the bit where she sees that she and her ideology are evil, decides she's beyond forgiveness, and jumps, leaving the "DraggedDownToHell" scene in... But they kept in some of the breakdown, which makes a heck of a lot less sense without the fallout or the HeelRealization.

'''''Disney's Anne Frank''''' is an[[note]]imaginary[[/note]] animated film released by Creator/{{Disney}} in the spring of 1989. It is very, ''very'' loosely based on ''Theatre/TheDiaryOfAnneFrank'', but takes a lot of liberties with the source material, adding three talking animal sidekicks, a Nazi necromancer FemmeFatale, and a HappilyEverAfter ending.
