365 Days of Film: 30 Awesome Animated Flicks 

1. Anastasia (1997) Dir. Don Bluth & Gary Goldman 

How Do I Love You: Here she is, y’all! QUEEN OF THE ORPHANS! The only animated princess I ever truly wanted to be! She had it all: a bad ass wardrobe, an equally attractive orphan was in love with her, an adorable pup, a crazy Paris obsessed grandma, a fat man that loved her like the daughter he never had, and Christopher Lloyd with a bat HELL BENT (HA! I hate myself) on killing her. It’s a classic film that will always always ALWAYS be my favorite animated film. No matter how much Disney paraphernalia I have collected over the years, 20th Century Fox will always have my heart. The animation is sub-par at best but this movie was all I had as a young’n with four siblings and no friends, and frankly, all I needed because she was living the life I wanted, as disturbed a life as that is. I just can’t even begin to describe how much pleasure I get out of sitting in front of my TV even now to spend ninety-four minutes in a frozen dreamland. At least until they get to Paris and BAM! It’s the twenties. I will tell you I love the songs. I did ALWAYS want my own Puka. I love the vocal cast, excluding K-Dunst obviously. I love the excess of crossed eyes. I love that she was cursed and how incredibly creepy Rasputin was. I love the songs. I love the script. I love the mystery behind the whole ‘Anastasia’ thing in reality. But most of all I love that this movie just fell into my lap by pure happenstance one day when I was walking through Giant Eagle with my mom and I saw the tape and I said to her ‘Can I have this?’ and she said ‘Have you seen it?’ and I lied and said ‘Yeah!’ and she said ‘Alright!’. And I’ve been a different girl ever since.
