The book was adapted into an animated film of the same name, which was released in 1986. The adaptation is similar to the book (the main difference being that Dogmatix accompanies his master to Britain). See more »
Although Julius Caesar managed to beat Casivellaunus's coalition and demanding tribute and hostages from them, he never conquered Brittannia as a whole. Even his victory against the southern tribes was short-lived, since he went back to Gaul to stop an uprising and secure Roman rule there. Permanent Roman occupation in Brittannia started about a century later, under emperor Claudius. See more »

As a bonus feature for the German DVD release, each Asterix film was given a new dubbing in a German dialect. This film was dubbed in Swabian. See more »
I viewed this film in my French class (the original french language version). Everyone in my class thought the British characters were hysterical because of their accents while speaking French. It is funny to see how the French make fun of their rivals in Britain. It is also fun to see the barbaric architectural style of London with Big Ben and Parliament made of wood! I would not recommend this film for a person who does not speak French or who is not familiar with the historical background of the film (The Gallo-Roman period in France). Even with the animation style that characteristic of the eighties, it is still fun to watch and see the French version of history.
