The newest release from Ghibli Museum Library, Studio Ghibli's label for Japanese-subtitled versions of classic animated films from throughout the world, will be the 1957 Soviet feature Snezhnaya Koroleva (The Snow Queen, based on the Hans Christian Andersen story). This film had a significant influence on Hayao Miyazaki, who became inspired by the quality of its animation and its emotional impact, and decided to continue working as an animator after considering a career move into manga. It will be released to Japanese theaters on December 15 as a double bill with Lev Milchin's Stoikyi Olovyannyi Soldatik, a 20-minute adaptation of Andersen's The Steadfast Tin Soldier.
