A slightly more satisfying presentation for the DVD player, on the other hand, is on the disc of a more traditional animated feature, Fox’s well-done 1997 Disney knockoff Anastasia. Both the widescreen and full-frame versions of this romance/fantasy about the legendary lost daughter of the Russian czar are included, as are language tracks in French and Spanish. In addition to the usual extras–a “making of” special; a featurette lifted from the electronic press kit; the trailer for the film and its horrid direct-to-video spinoff, “Bartok the Magnificent”–there are other of cute enhancements, namely an interactive puzzle game and two singalong clips that’ll please the kiddies. That’s the big shortcoming of this disc; it pleases the young ‘uns, but adult animation afficionados will be hungry for something more substantial.
However, the of Anastasia DVD is a veritable feast compared to the pathetic initial digital entries of the granddaddy of the animated genre, Disney.
