Though we’ve seen it 1 billion times (approximately), we can’t help but fall in love with Anastasia over and over again. We’re talking about the 1997 film that follows the journey of Anastasia Romanov (the last surviving child of the Russian Royal Family) as she works to reunite with the Dowager Empress (her grandmother). Along the way, she meets the hunky Dimitri and, together, they fight back against the evil forces of Rasputin (the film’s antagonist).

Basically, the entire movie is pure gold and we would not be opposed if it underwent a live-action remake – especially now that illustrator Jirka Väätäinen has shown us what Anastasia and Dimitri would look like in real-life.

We now present you with the intrepid Anastasia:

She’s even wearing her “Together in Paris” necklace!

And the swoon-worthy Dimitri:

According to Seventeen, Väätäinen solely uses Photoshop to create his illustrations. Using traits from about 30 different people, the artist will blend together these elements until he achieves his vision.

So… this is pretty much proof that we need a live-action Anastasia, right?
