* AllAnimationIsDisney: Could very well be the UrExample of this. This film is mistaken for Disney more than any other animated film out there, due largely in part to it copying many aspects of the "[[UsefulNotes/TheRenaissanceAgeOfAnimation 1990s Disney Princess formula]]" thanks to Creator/DonBluth being at the helm. It is mistaken for a Disney film so often that if you search "Anastasia" on Google, one of the very first search suggestions will be "anastasia disney". Muddling things further is that Disney now owns the movie due to the buyout of 20th Century Fox's movies and TV shows in late 2017, so it retroactively ''is'' a Disney movie.

** In the past, many people have mistaken ''Anastasia'' for a Disney movie, but as of Dec 14th 2017, when Disney bought out all of 20th Century Fox's movies and TV shows, it actually '''is''' a Disney movie now.

** With her hair down and partly tied back with a bow as she appears on the ship to France, Anya resembles [[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Ariel]]. Now remember that ''WesternAnimation/AllDogsGoToHeaven'' was [[DuelingMovies crushed]] by ''Disney/TheLittleMermaid'' at the box office.

* PopularityPolynomial: "Journey To The Past" was well-received when the film was released, getting an Oscar nomination, before fading from public consciousness. In TheNewTens it has suddenly enjoyed a massive surge in popularity, with ''The New York Times'' even calling it "The [[{{Disney/Frozen}} 'Let It Go']] of the 90s". Blog/UnshavedMouse admitted to being blown away, saying Liz Callaway's performance was "[[Disney/TheLittleMermaid Jodi Benson]] good". It has seen plenty of covers and recreations on YouTube too.

* BrokenBase: The Rasputin subplot for a lot of people. On the one hand, people love Rasputin and think he's a very [[EvilIsCool charismatic villain]] - also lending to a very action-packed climax. On the other, some fans feel that the story of Anya trying to find her family is interesting enough on its own without a villain needed. Notably Rasputin disappears for a good chunk of the film after they meet Sophie. The stage musical removes him completely, splitting fans who can't agree whether it's an improvement or not.



* MemeticMutation: Many Website/YouTube postings of "In the Dark of the Night" come with parody lyrics featuring another villain (such as [[Franchise/SuperMarioBros Bowser]], [[{{Franchise/Transformers}} Megatron]], or [[WesternAnimation/MyLittlePonyFriendshipIsMagic Discord]]) in place of Rasputin.

** Bernadette Peters starred in another animated film [[Disney/BeautyAndTheBeastTheEnchantedChristmas where she played a French character alongside Angela Lansbury]] around the same time.

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The ScreenToStageAdaptation completely removes the subplot involving Rasputin and Bartok. Fans of these characters did not take it well.
** On the other hand, people who felt the more "Disney-ish" elements of the original film that didn't work well appreciate that they were axed in the musical, instead allowing for more historical context, a more appropriate mood, and character development.

* WhatDoYouMeanItsNotPolitical: The fact that the film portrays the Russian Revolution as being the result of a dark spell, courtesy of Raputin (as opposed to perceived injustices of society) could easily be taken as a TakeThat to revolutionaries as being pathetic dupes of evil men.
