The untold story of 19th-century pirate Cheng I Sao, the great Chinese swashbuckler that history forgot.
In a lawless world overrun by roving ships and ruthless men, a young woman propels herself from a life of forced sex work to command one of the largest and most successful pirate fleets in the world. Her 60,000-strong squad terrorised the Qing Dynasty’s Imperial Navy and even repeatedly rebuffed the Portuguese and British forces. Blending vibrant tilt-brush animation with spectacular, spirited action scenes, Madame Pirate: Becoming a Legend puts you centre stage to witness the incredible real-life story of a fierce, formidable woman.
