A film by Claude Zidi
Certificate: PG
Running Time: 106 mins
Retail Price: £19.99
Release Date:

Rather than revealing any of the numerous incidents in the story, lets just say that Asterix, Obelix and the brave Gauls and the mean Romans are in it as well as the whole host of Rene Goscinny and Albert Uderzo original characters (including Dogmatix), all playing their traditional roles.

For the first time Asterix will swing into battle with Obelix... Obelix will turn Asterix into the Romans... Asterix will restore the fallen Ceaser to power... Tunnabrix will steal the Roman Tax Collector`s chest. Only to have it stolen from him in turn... And the magic potion will be replaced by Mathusalix`s super-magic-potion...

So is this an Asterix turned inside out? Certainly not. Everybody is completely in character, but... well, it`s too complicated. It takes a whole movie to explain it.
