Did You Know?

Edit
Trivia The first live-action Astérix film to be a fully original story not based on one or several of the comic books. Previously, the animated films The Twelve Tasks of Asterix (1976) and Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (2018) were also original stories, although the former was written and co-directed by Astérix creators René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.
