Today in breaking princess news: Anastasia, the star of the beloved 1997 animated film Anastasia, which was based on the legend of Anastasia Romanov, is finally a Disney princess.

As Entertainment Weekly notes, Disney's over-$52 billion takeover of 20th Century Fox means that Anastasia and a number of other Fox characters will soon fall under the Disney brand. In Anastasia's case, this means she technically just became a Disney princess.

It was originally produced by Fox Animation Studios, excluding our heroine from the Disney princess club.

Anastasia fans were quick to point out the news on Twitter, and the internet promptly lost it:
