The movie is based on the books "Asterix the Legionary" and "Asterix the Gladiator". Apart from that, many minor characters in the movie are from other Asterix stories. For instance, the over-ambitious legionary is from "Asterix on Corsica", while the tradesman who sells Panacea and Tragicomix in Rome has the same appearance as a recurring Phoenician salesman.

Astérix et la surprise de César(Asterix and Cesar`s surprise) is definitely the best Asterix cartoon. It captures the atmosphere and style of the classic comics extremely well and this is a must see if you liked the comics. Those who have read the comics will soon see that some of the plot-details have been changed, but it doesn`t matter since the end-result is very good. 9/10
