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.
