According to legend, a horde of goblins and monsters live in the depths of the primeval forest. Among these evil spirits are two snakes, one white and one green. One day, a young herbalist Xu Xian comes to the mountains and accidentally falls into a lake. White Snake, in the incarnation of a beautiful lady, comes to his rescue and they fall in love. With the help of Green Snake, she ventures into the human world and marries Xu Xian…but the sorcerer Fa Hai (international action star JET LI) has detected her presence and is leaving Jinshan Temple on a mission to vanquish evil from our world.
A dynamic blend of romantic fairy tale, sumptuous visuals and kinetic action, THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE stunningly brings the ancient Chinese fable of unrequited love, heroic righteousness and self-sacrifice to the big screen.
THE SORCERER AND THE WHITE SNAKE is available to rent or buy on Blu-ray, DVD and Digital February 22, 2012
