An Anastasia parody by 123princess
A Disney/ Atomic Betty crossover production
Ten years later
Belle (narrating): ten years later everything became dim, dull and gloomy. As well as the people, who lived in the once cheery city of St Petersburg, had put the past well behind them.
(Screen moves down into the hustle and bustle of the city/ music plays):
(Eric from TLM)Factory worker: St Petersburg is gloomy!
Wendy (Peter Pan): St Petersburg is bleak!
Sparky (Atomic Betty): my underwear got frozen standing here all week!
People standing in line to start work: oh since the revolution! Our lives have been so grey! Thank goodness for the gossip that gets us through the day HEY!
(Screen moves to town square and to the little stalls as we see a lion with a red mane, this is Mufasa)
People: have you heard there’s a rumour in St Petersburg! Have you heard what they’re saying on the street!
Pete (House of Mouse): although the tsar did not survive one daughter maybe still alive! (People nod their heads in agreement)
People: the princess Roxanne!
(Pete looks around for the soldiers hearing the name!)
A nearby soldier Goofy (House of Mouse) looks over at the crowd, who said the missing princesses’ name. He was not pleased at all!
Pete (whispers): but please do not repeat!
Belle (narrating): Meanwhile Mufasa weaved in and out of the crowd’s way, as he walked up to a door and whispered a password that let him into a secure, area.
People: it’s a rumour a legend! A mystery, something whispered in an alleyway or through a crack! It’s a rumour that’s part of our history!!!!
Esmeralda (Hunchback of Notre Dame): they say her royal grandmamma, will pay a royal sum! To someone who can bring the princess back!
Belle (narrating): the people were offering goods that were, from the palace had all a good price to sell. Mufasa carried on, into the town and got spotted by a young man with chestnut brown hair. (It is Tom as an older man).
Tom: (whistles) Mufasa! Mufasa! Over here!
Mufasa: Tom! It’s good to see you, old friend.
(Camera moves to another part of the little stalls as we see a duck holding a painting of the last, tsar of Russia)
Donald Duck (also House of Mouse): a ruble for this painting! It’s parker, I swear! (Camera moves to another stall with another item to sell)
Rapunzel (Tangled): Count Yusopov’s pyjama’s comrade, buy the pair!
(Camera moves to another stall with a woman, holding a little coat lined with real fur!)
Cruella DeVil (101 Dalmatians): I got this from the palace, it’s lined with real fur!!
Tom and Mufasa: it could be worth a fortune! If it belonged to her!
Belle (narrating): Tom and Mufasa then walked into a little room that had all sorts of trinkets, which were worth a fortune. Including a little music box, that had once belonged to the princess Roxanne long ago.
Mufasa: well Tom, I got us the theatre!
Tom: everything is going according to plan, now all we need is the girl!! Just think Mufasa, no more forging papers, no more stolen goods! We’ll have three tickets out of here! One for you, one for me and one for Roxanne!
Belle (narrating): they dance around the room and packed a few things, Tom brought out a familiar looking box.
Tom (sings): it’s the rumour! The legend, the mystery, it’s the princess Roxanne who will help us fly! You and I, friend will go down in history!!!!
(They picked up a few things for their little trip)
We’ll find the girl to play the part and teach her what to say!
Dress her up and take her to Paris!
Imagine the reward her dear old grandmamma will pay
who else could pull it off but you and me?
(They step out onto the balcony and slid down the roof and stated to sing together)
Tom: we’ll be rich
Mufasa: we’ll be rich
Tom: we’ll be out
Mufasa: we’ll be out
Tom and Mufasa: and St Petersburg will have some more to talk about!
Belle (narrating): they both jumped off the balcony and laughed, all the way as they slid down the rooftops.
Crowd: sshh have you heard there’s a rumour in St Petersburg, have you heard what they’re saying on the street HEY?!!!!
(Lots of chattering)
Crowd: have you heard there’s a rumour in St Petersburg? Have you heard? Comrade what do you suppose? A fascinating mystery!
Tom: The biggest con in history!!!
Crowd: the princess Roxanne, Alive or dead?
Bert (Mary Poppins) window washer: who knows? Shhh!
(The song ended as pigeons flew past Bert and into the street below)
Belle (narrating): meanwhile somewhere outside of St Petersburg, a place called the peoples orphanage, had lots of kids who were waving goodbye. A young woman with red hair and blue eyes was walking with the orphanage, owner and was trying to get the young girls attention. This is Kate (my OC) she had, dark brown hair and light blue eyes that have glasses covering them.
Kate: I got you a job at the fish factory you go straight down this path until you get to the fork in the road-
Kate: are you listening!!!!!
Roxy: BYE BYE EVERYBODY!!! I’m listening comrade Kate
Kate: you have, been a thorn in my side since you‘ve been here! Acting like the queen of Sheba, instead of being the nameless no-account you are!
Belle (narrating): the orphanage owner had known Roxy, ever since she arrived at the orphanage all those ten years ago. She did not like Roxy one bit, because of the young girl’s attitude and slightly cheery tone.
As the both of them reached the gates, Kate said to her in a sourly tone.
Kate: for the last ten years I’ve fed you, I’ve clothed you I-
(Roxy mimics the owner): kept a roof over my head!
Belle (narrating): the young girl rolled her eyes in annoyance and cut the orphanage owner off. The owner scoffed at Roxy and was asking her a question.
Kate: how is it that you don’t have a clue to who you were before you came to us, but you can remember all that?
(Roxy shows her the pendant)
Roxy: but I do have a clue to-
Kate: (mocking her) I know! Together in Paris! So you want to go to France to find your family huh?? (Roxy nodded) well little Miss Roxy it’s time to take your place in life. In life and in line and be grateful too! (She throws the scarf at the girl and mocks her again!) Together in Paris!
(Gate closes as Kate walked back inside the orphanage laughing all the way back there)
Belle (narrating): as the orphanage owner walked back inside, she said reminding her again to be grateful.
Kate: be grateful!
Belle (narrating): Roxy followed Kate’s instructions, and reached the sign post that read fish markets on the left and on the right read St Petersburg.
Roxy (mocking Kate): ha-ha be grateful Roxy! I AM grateful- GRATEFUL TO GET AWAY!! Go left she says... Well I know what’s to the left! I’ll be Roxy the orphan forever.... but if I go right maybe I could find- who ever gave me this necklace must have loved me. (Rolls her eyes and groans) this is crazy! Me go to Paris?
Belle (narrating): Roxy wandered around the sign post and looked at the sky and yelled out.
Roxy: send me a sign! A hint... Anything!
Belle (narrating): Roxy sat down on a pile of snow and waited for a sign. Just then all of a sudden, a little orange dog with long black ears grabbed Roxy’s purple scarf (this is Pluto from house of mouse).
Roxy: hey! I don’t have time to play right now ok! I’m waiting for a sign!
(The dog looks at her and barks happily grabbing her scarf)
Roxy: give me that... would you please leave me alone give me that!
Belle (narrating): the dog ran around, while Roxy tried to get her scarf back from the little pup and fell in the snow in front of the sign.
Roxy: Oh great! A dog wants me to go to St Petersburg! Okay I can take a hint!
Belle (narrating): the wind blew into the direction, of where the sign was pointing to St Petersburg. Roxy was very surprised and followed the direction it was blowing to.
Heart don’t fail me now
Courage don’t desert me don’t turn back now that we’re here!
People always say life is full of choices no one ever mentions...fear or how the world can seem so vast on a journey to the past!
Belle (narrating): Roxy picked up some snow and threw it in the air, the snowflakes landed on the little orange pup who Roxy decided to call Pluto. The little pup caught snow in his mouth. The both of them continued walking down the road as a sleigh, was pulling the Darling family that rushed past them, covering the both of them in snow. Roxy picked Pluto up, held him in her arms and put him back down, as they continued to walk along the road.
Roxy (continues singing):
Somewhere down this road I know someone’s waiting years of dreams just can’t be wrong!
Arms will open wide I’ll be safe than wanted
Finally home where I belong
well starting now I’m learning fast
on this journey to the past!
Belle (narrating): the woman and dog walked past a house where Rodger and Anita (101 Dalmatians) and their two children Sophie and Danny (both OC’s) lived. Both Sophie and Danny ran around them and chased Pluto, while Rodger and Anita happily watched them. After playing with them, Roxy waved goodbye to the family, with a sad smile as the family waved goodbye back.
Pluto ran back to her and continued on their journey.
(Family of squirrels come up to Roxy)
Roxy (continues singing):
Home, love, family
there was once a time I must have had them too
Home, love, family
I will never be complete until I find you
Belle (narrating): Roxy picked up Pluto and twirled him around, as she held him. She carried him, until they got to some fallen snow and covered trees. Roxy slid over some logs and held her hat in her hands, revealing her red messy hair.
Roxy (singing): One step at a time
One hope than another
Who knows where this road may go
Back to who I was, on to find my future
Things my heart still needs to know
Belle (narrating): she finished the last verse of the song as animals, watched her and Pluto followed her.
Roxy (finishes singing):
Yes let this be a sign! Let this road be mine
let it lead me to my past!
And bring me home at last!
Belle (narrating): As Roxy held the last note and onto her hat, as she and Pluto reached the hill Pluto barked happily. with St Petersburg shining in the horizon.
