Plot Summary

The well-known little village from the Asterix and Obelix-comic books is in trouble: It is the last place not controlled by Rome. When Tax collector Claudius Incorruptus does not get his money from the villagers, Julius Caesar himself comes to the place to see what's so special about their resistance. A special magic potion, prepared by the village's druid, gives incredible power to those who drink it. And Obelix, who fell into the pot as a child has been invincible ever since. With the help of Tullius Destructivus, an intrigeur, the Romans try to get Obelix and the druid into their hands in order to wipe the little village off the map, when the last potion of it's stock has been used up. But each individual also has some plans of his own... Written by Julian Reischl

Trivia In the pit-scene the extras had to scream and cheer like crazy. At first the crew couldn't get the people to be loud and wild enough. Then the director decided to split them up in two groups. Fans of adverse German soccer teams were put up against each other. It worked. The extras went berserk from then on. See more »
Goofs Most Roman legionaries are wearing iron helmets and plate armor (lorica segmentata or lorica laminata), which in the time of Julius Caesar were not used by the Roman army yet. Roman soldiers in the Gallic War mainly wore simple bronze helmets and chain-mail armor. See more »
