** Additionally, the film's Anastasia is essentially Anna Anderson, who was a fraud in real life. Her claim to being Anastasia was debunked before this movie was made. Notably, Anastasia is actually referred to as "Anna" in the 1956 Ingrid Bergman version, which was made before Anna Anderson's story was fully debunked. This version refers to her instead as "Anya", perhaps to distance itself from the Anna Anderson legacy.

A stage adaptation was announced for the 2016/2017 Broadway season, with an initial out-of-town tryout in spring/summer 2016. The original songwriting team will return, and the stage version will make some significant changes while maintaining the spine of the film, blending the fairytale tone of the animated film with more of the actual history of post-imperial Russia and the Romanovs.

* GirlsNeedRoleModels: At the time it was astonishingly rare for any children's movie to have a lead Female Protagonist. Even then the female lead might end up reliant on male characters.[[note]]The only two before this were BeautyAndTheBeast and {{Pocahontas}} - and even these are questionable as they still revolve around romance - ''Anastasia'' only gradually becomes a love story.[[/note]]
