20th Century Fox did create children’s books based on the movie as merchandise. Unfortunately there’s no adult novel length book about Anya, Dimitri, and Vlad bumming through Europe with recovering retrograde amnesia and make outs. But there should be.
The 1997 animated Anastasia film is loosely based off of a 1956 film by the same name, starring Ingrid Bergman and Yul Brynner. That earlier film, in turn, was based off the urban myth surrounding the real Anastasia Romanov.
If you still want a fictionalized account of Anastasia’s life I remember as a kid I enjoyed Anastasia: The Last Grand Duchess from the Royal Diaries series.
