BEIJING, June 19 (Xinhua) -- "White Snake 2," a sequel to Light Chaser Animation's hit film on the legend of the White Snake, is set to lock horns with a sci-fi movie from the makers of "Ne Zha," China's top-grossing animated film to date.

Titled "White Snake 2: The Tribulation of Green Snake," the animated fantasy is slated for release in China on July 23 this year, exactly a week before the release of "Rainbow Sea Fly High," Coloroom Pictures' first foray into the sci-fi genre, according to announcements on social media.

Summer is usually deemed a lucrative movie season in China, and the yearly top earners of both 2019 and 2017 at China's box office were released in late July.

"White Snake" and "Ne Zha," hit theaters in January and July 2019, raking in around 455 million yuan (70.69 million U.S. dollars) and 5 billion yuan, respectively.
