Whites­nake

Animation Magazine - - FRAME-BY-FRAME -

[Shout!, $17 | $27 BD] An ear­lier ar­rival from the Mid­dle King­dom, this mytho­log­i­cal pre­quel imag­ines the lead-in to one of the coun­try’s most beloved folk­tales — a young wo­man is saved by a ru­ral snake catcher, but loses her mem­ory. As their love grows, so do the dark threats co­a­lesc­ing around the reemer­gence of her true iden­tity. Ren­dered in beau­ti­ful 3D CG by Light Chaser An­i­ma­tion, the idyl­lic land­scapes, slash­ing ac­tion and de­monic trick­ster an­tics have earned Whites­nake a warm re­cep­tion at screen­ings around the world. GKIDS’ English dub stars Vin­cent Ror­driguez III, Stephanie Sheh, Matthew Moy and Faye Mata. Plus, the set in­cludes an in­ter­view with Ji Zhao (co-di­rec­tor with Amp Wong). [Feb. 4]
