China is coming for us with an epic romantic fantasy story. Exploring the origins of the Chinese fable, “Legend of the White Snake”, the film takes you on a journey through love and tolerance. When Blanca gets lost and loses her memory after a fight with the Snake Master, she runs into Xu Xuan who vows to help her find out who she is. With epic fight scenes and magnificent sound design blasting you away, you will be holding your breath, but remember to breathe because directors Amp Wong and Ji Zhao have left little room for relaxing. White Snake is a beautifully animated fantasy adventure, with a familiar story and characters, but also the twists and turns of Asian fables.
