Trailer Time: Astérix : Le Domaine des dieux

asterix
Oddly enough, just last night I was watching an Asterix movie — Asterix & Obelix in Britain. Now there’s a trailer for an all-new, all-CGI Asterix. I’m cautiously optimistic — or should that be Optimistix?
Not just a trailer, but also a making of — if your French is up to scratch, that is.

But even if it’s not, it’s quite clearly based on the book known in English as “The Mansion Of The Gods”, which I don’t think has been done in either animated or live action form previously. An interesting choice, to say the least.
Added bonus: Here’s the trailer for the movie I watched last night, which, in short review fashion, I’ll say is well worth your time if you’re an Asterix fan. This one has a local release (with subtitles) and is very, very, very well done.

  1. Great movie for children and adults, i laughed a lot! I was not sure about the 3D animation (because older Asterix cartoons were drawn) but it was really beautifully done!
    Im a huge Asterix and Obelix and I’m really pleased with the result of the movie.
    Also nice how they implemented humour that both works for children and adults.
    Really a recommended movie for anyone.
    Looking forward to any sequels in this style.
