Roger Carel, the French voice of Astérix in all previous animated productions, had originally retired from acting when this film was announced, but agreed to return to voice the character one last time. See more »
After the disappointment of the 2012 Astérix & Obélix: Au service de sa Majesté and the lame 2008 Astérix aux jeux olympiques, finally a fun and entertaining Asterix movie at the level of 2002 Mission Cleopatre!
I really liked the subtle (and sometimes not so subtle) humour, similar and so faithful to the comics albums. Yes, Asterix and Obelix are back to their genuine roots!
One album at the time, one story at the time. There is enough content (adventures, characters, plots) in an Asterix comics album to feed an entire movie, thank you for understanding that.
Also the "secondary" characters were attaching (like some Roman family, some labour slaves, some Roman legionnaires, etc.), making them a strong addition to the movie and the quality of the story.
