Ice Queendom of Rwby Plot
RWBY: Ice Queendom, like the original Rooster Teeth series, is set in Remnant, a world where the residents’ dark emotions give rise to frightful monsters.
They can only be defeated by Hunters and Huntresses, who have a semblance of magic and can fight in intricate, stylized battles.
The show will center on Ruby Rose, Yang, Weiss, and Blake, their fellow Beacon Academy Huntresses, as they start their huntress training.
Because of their track record of handling both charming and shockingly serious content, studios like Shaft, which have previously worked on shows like Puella Magi Madoka Magica, were hired to produce the adaptation.
