As a guy who grew up on Asterix comics, and I'm still buying new editions for my kid, I can say that quality of episodes declined with couple of last Uderso's episodes. New team has made last 3 novels, and they had their hits and misses, but it was good for the future of Asterix that new ideas came in.
It was the same with this movie. Completely new story, romans are not the main oponents, and the story is more about druid Panoramix (Getafix), than Asterix and Obelix. It was a risk, but in my opinion it payed off. The whole story was fun, with beautiful animation, and lots of stuff that even grown-ups can laugh to. I felt as happy as when I was as a kid watching my first Asterix animated movie. We also got the origin story of one of the most loved characters - druid Panoramix.
Very good addition to Asterix collection. A must watch for every true fan - young or old.
