This was a beautiful Chinese animated film but it made me ask a lot of questions like "was this meant for kids?" cause the movie was rated for 7 year olds and up on Amazon but lemme tell ya...there's a LOT of spicy stuff in this film that would not fly in a Disney movie lol

If you get White Snake on like disc, they have a interview with Zhao and he outright said the film wasn't for kids. That china was finally pushing away from just being for little kids. The whole point of the story is that he's kinda boring, this is a story about HER, about blanca. It's to explain why she loves him in the future, being that he helped save her numerous times. There's a big difference between the concept of this is OUR story and this is MY story. For the feeling of the soap opera-ness I mean there's like 50 billion different soap opera versions of white snake. The whoe thing is a prequel for the folklore that has never really existed. The 1000 year gap at the very end of the film is the start of the folklore story, she already has all these feelings, and he's kind of a boring useless man, there's no reason why she should love him, this was simply to explain a concept of why.

I don't know why I can't send my comment, I actually did some research on Chinese animation, the Chinese animation industry started in 1942 and influenced Osamu Tezuka and Hayao Miyazaki, but after the reform and opening up, the animation production factories changed to private companies, which led to them not being able to maintain the high quality production they had before

At that time, China was undergoing reform and opening up, and the animation production factories were changed from state-run enterprises led by CCP to private enterprises, so Shanghai wanted to learn from Miyazaki about the experience of piece-rate pay, which was a great disappointment to Miyazaki and Takahata Isao. In an interview with a Chinese journalist in 2014, Takahata said, "Miyazaki's disappointment with China is unparalleled. I was the same at this point. Because we had a lot of respect for the Shanghai Animation Film Studio, I didn't realize that this was all they executives cared about. Once the piecework is paid, no more films of the Chinese style can be made." As a matter of fact, after Shanghai Animation Film Studio became a private enterprise, it never produced any good works, and Chinese animation was in a long-term slump, so in the Chinese view, Chinese animation now is not "starting to catch up", but "renaissance".

The first Chinese animated film, "tie shan gong zhu" (Princess Iron Fan), produced in 1942, even influenced Osamu Tezuka, who later made a special trip to Shanghai to interview animator Wan Lai Ming. Hayao Miyazaki was also influenced by Chinese animation, especially the ink animation made in Shanghai that amazed him. Interestingly, Miyazaki was once influenced by an animation produced by Toei, which was the Japanese adaptation of the "Legend of the White Snake" animation. Miyazaki later presented the film of "Nausicaä of the Valley of the Wind" to Shanghai Animation Film Studio in the hope that he could discuss business with them.

I watched both version, frankly. That's on you and the dub. Butchering the original story to suit a dub for a western audiences is frankly a crime. They changed the story so much that i thought I was listening a horrible abridge on a good movie. This is why I admired Japanese Animated Film, they DO NOT cater to western audiences. They tell their story and don't give in to western censorship. Anything that is aired by 4Kids is butchered to suit western audiences, and is horrible and pathetic at its best. I get that you do not understand world building like.....at all. You sure you can review movies here? You didn't even see the story came from the world, the world inside this film is a story. To me is a very simple love story of a mortal and a fiend(beast demon) and a person will sacrifice anything for his love one, in a world where two relationship is taboo.

I have watched a few chinese 3d animated movies and they all had a few things in common to this -beautiful animation -pretty-looking main characters(yeah i love animated characters what look conventionally pretty bc why not)) -boring hetero lovestory line just for the sake of it(would be better off without them, but im gay so i obviously wouldnt like it that much haha) -some kind of fantasy or rpg-ish setting -snakes and dragons everywhere -boring plot, but its all compensated by beautiful animation

All the issues mentioned here are so Chinese omg. Clunky dialogue? Pretty sure they hired a poor translator who wasn't allowed/didn't rewrite the typical cringey writing Chinese fiction loves. Pacing being off? So typical with 99% of Chinese stories. Bland characters? Welcome to 90% of characters in Chinese fiction. The only good characters are characters who'd been given at least 100 full chapters to develop. The animation does look nice. They've finally moved on from the MMORPG aesthetic, yay.

Luckily this was not Disney, and kids in China are not subdued to political correctness and are more allowed. By the way, Kungfu Panda was really not that much of a big deal in China, they are fed loads of animation from homegrown or from japan for decades, so they have been spoiled with animated films.

Implied sex is nbd in China, they have a much healthier attitude around sexuality in most regards. The fact there was violence on this level is actually surprising though, they censor violence the same way the west censors sexuality.

Having watched both the 2019 & Light Chaser's new Nezha retellings, I really like the way these films operate with the assumption that you already know the legend. As an outsider, comparing adaptations for hints has been a lot of fun. It makes me want to learn more about the original stories. I don't like when western films explain their references, so I doubt I'd enjoy a Chinese movie that tries to handhold foreign audiences.

From my experience watching Chinese animations (mostly what I've seen from this studio), they seem to be more style vs substance. Idk if, like you said, its cultural difference that make me value different things when it comes to characters and story telling, but I feel like this studio is so close to making some really good movies.

What was a bit stupid, again, at the end was when Shen|Swen saved Blanka. He used the special device to stop the red snakes and killed them then rushed into the ice with her. He could stop the machine, since he knows how to use it and wouldn't HAVE TO sacrifice himself to save her. yes it was noble to protect her and all BUT Shen could stop the device and saved both of them. Guess he forgot about it :S He's kind although should be more careful!

I like this movie! it has good animation, sweet music, likable characters and cool villains, excellent action scenes and romance. It's awesome, a fun and tragic adventure :D Verta was a bit stupid at the end when the deathly scales were sucked by the villain during the final battle. If she didn't told him what it was, he could be dead but for some reason the snake lady decided to REVEAL TO HER ENEMY what this thing is. That was dumb U-U Beside that, she got a sassy personality; Verta is smart, strong and fast. I like her! I find it weird that the chief of the snakes took their soul to become stronger. I mean, if she need them to kill the humans or find infos about her other enemies they can't since she kill them. This women isn't that clever :S Also, having too much strenght|power is never good cause it's hard to control and would kill you. Guess she forgot about this important detail.

The film was visually really beautiful. I do feel that the story telling could use some expanding on to really feel well-paced and more fleshed out, but the key concepts to make it really great were there. It's made me very curious about the original folktale too now. About Xuan and white snake girl tho. I think I know why they felt bland. There were many spots in the film where they could of taken advantage and created all sorts of juicy conflict between the two. Xuan's fear of snakes for example would of made an excellent obstacle for him to get through while falling in love with the white snake girl. Maybe even funny. I also feel that he should of been more thoughtful/fearful about demons. His "who cares" remark about the danger and fear felt too flippant for the kind of world they lived in. White snake girl was a bit too gloomy for me and some of her actions left me feeling confused. Like the sex scene. Just because it happened right after white snake girl remembers she's mortal enemies with mankind and then wants to leave her new bf imedietly after litterally making love to him 2 minuets ago. Like, ok. O u c h. Xuan also throwing his humanity away... I get the reasoning they were going for but the way he did it felt like it cheapened the value of what he was really giving up. It still felt like a human-demon relationship could of worked, like he didn't actually have to go that far yet. Where was his sense of dignity and self-preservation? The kid flung himself at the idea of becoming a demon too fast! I think it would of ended up meaning more to us as the audience if he had gone to the fox lady because he was in a really desperate situation. Like, maybe becoming a demon was the only way he could save white snake girl or something I dunno. Something that raised the stakes so high he no longer had the option to not consider it. It could of worked really well into the jade seller's motto too. Him getting something precious if he gives something that's precious _to him_ in return. Ah I'm sorry. It's just very hard not to notice the parts that could of turned this film into something even more beautiful. Actually, while the characters did feel a bit dull, the scene where Xuan dies? It was really great. It was very moving and so sad. It gave me a lot of Titanic vibes and made me very tearful
