This is one of my favorite animated musicals. This film boasts an all star cast. Meg Ryan portrays Anastasia, and Kirsten Dunst plays the girl Anastasia. However they do not provide the singing parts. Liz Callaway sings for Anastasia. John Cusack and Kelsey Grammer plan the two who discover her. Christopher Lloyd plays the evil Rasputin. Bernadette Peters plays the grandmother's cohort, and Angela Lansbury the Queen mother, or Anastasia's grand mother. I love the song "Once Upon a December." "Journey to the Past" is also wonderful. And the story of finding yourself, and then maybe that is not the thing you really want to do. I think the Rasputin character may be over done. He is always falling apart and putting himself back together, and it gets old after a time.
