Adaptations of old stories will frequently move them closer to the production in time and/or space, even if the original is only a couple of decades old.
Distinct from Recycled IN SPACE in that the purpose is to make the story more familiar and accessible, whereas that trope is often based around transplanting a story into a less familiar setting. Also, by its nature, a Setting Update is typically made long after the original, whereas a Recycled Premise is usually a Me Too made to cash in on hot demand. Sometimes, especially with the more radical changes, it can be a genuinely clever analogy.
I love Anastasia but they get so much shit wrong and I had to talk about it.
As a history major currently studying Soviet Russia I would like to formally bless this post

I love how the historical revisionism of this movie basically said “Look, communism wasn’t actually a THING, people were CURSED into killing the BELOVED TSAR!
Despite the terrible inaccuracies and possible unfortunate implications of this film, I love this stupid movie. And it’s soundtrack. Especially it’s soundtrack; it never leaves my itunes.
