Anastasia movie font

Recommended Posts

Kat Carreon

I'm trying to identify the font(s?) from the logo of the movie Anastasia, by 20th century fox in 1997.  I got the picture from Deviantart, which I am sure is nothing more than a screenshot from the movie.  I am open to finding similar fonts if the exact font can not be identified.

I appreciate any and all help with this!

Disney film titles are hand-lettered, not typeset. There is no typeface to identify, I’m afraid.

Vaguely reminiscent of Goudy/Goudy Oldstyle and Danmark.

What Kevin said (other than the Disney part 😉).

Depending on the tools at your disposal, your skills, and more importantly, what you want or need to achieve, you could recreate something in the same vein using a Roman serif typeface that offers enough similar alternate and swashed letters, such as Bookmania or Monstice (or perhaps even Cinzel+Cinzel Decorative).

Something suitable could perhaps also be found in places like Letterhead Fonts or Creative Market.

Thank you both.  I was afraid of that. (And thank you Ricardo for also knowing it isn't Disney)

Other possible alternative source fonts are Sorts Mill Goudy or Yana although not quite right has alternative  swashed letters.

My mistake. Don Bluth, the director of Anastasia, used to work for Disney, hence my confusion....
