Disney+ is about to be bigger than ever as we’re set to get a wealth of new Disney+ Star content soon. The new service brings in thousands of hours of films and TV shows from Disney’s wider creative studios, and doubles the amount of content available – the update since Disney Plus first launched in 2020.
One of the questions fans have been asking is whether the 1997 hit movie Anastasia is part of the line-up of what we have in there to watch. And if you’re scratching your head, distinctly remember that Anastasia was not a Disney film? Well, it is now is, since it was made by 20th Century Fox, a studio that Disney now owns.
Here’s everything you need to know about the animated tale of the Russian orphan who may, just may turn out to be the last surviving member of the royal family.

What is Anastasia about?
Made by 20th Century Fox Animation, Anastasia is the story of Anya, an eighteen-year-old amnesiac orphan who has a striking resemblance to the Grand Duchess. Using that likeness she sides with a group of con men who want to use her appearance to their advantage. On her journey, Anya looks for any signs of who she was and if she has any family of her own out there.
