The last surviving child of the Russian Royal Family joins two con men to reunite with her grandmother, the Dowager Empress, while the undead Rasputin seeks her death.
Originally, Tilly the cat, a kitten of the Dowager Empress Marie was going to have a larger role in the movie, and have a friendly rivalry with Anya's puppy Pooka.
Dowager Empress Marie:
There was a time, not very long ago, where we lived in an enchanted world of elegant palaces and grand parties. The year was 1916, and my son, Nicholas, was the czar of Imperial Russia.
After Anastasia sees her grandmother and Sophie at the Paris Opera and says, "Please let her remember me," she points the binoculars back towards them, but the reflection is of the Russian Ballet dancers on stage.
