In this visually ravishing animation, a girl with magical gifts embodies the Chinese legend of the White Snake, in a land of magic, demons and plenty of snakes.

Blanca wakes up in a remote village with no memory of who she is or how she got there. Xuan, the snake-catcher who saved her, helps to search for clues that might lead to her true identity. As fragments of her memory return, Blanca discovers that she has magical gifts, and also skills as a kickass assassin.

Fresh from its success in China, White Snake features gorgeous serpentine design and eye-popping characters. With its jaw-dropping spectacular of a climax, animation fans will definitely find it time well spent!

Conceived as a prequel to one of the most ancient and enduring stories in Chinese history, White Snake presents a sumptuous tale of trickster demons, deadly mythical beasts, assassins, wuxia action, and the promise of eternal love.
