If, like me, you grew up in the 80s and 90s you will no doubt remember reading the adventures of Asterix & Obelisk books.
The French translated series was certainly all the rage when I was younger but isn’t something I’ve been culturally aware of in the last few years. Well now he’s back with a new CGI animated movie which arrives in the UK this month!
Check out the nostalgic trailer for Asterix: Secret of the Magic Potion in the player below!
On the 60th anniversary of the much-adored comic book series, Asterix and Obelix embark on a quest across Gaul looking for a young druid worthy of learning the secret of the magic potion – a formula which has long helped to keep the Gaulish village safe against Julius Cesar and his invading army. However, once Asterix and Obelix begin their quest, all hell breaks loose at home as the Romans start attacking the village, and an evil wizard named Sulfurix does everything he can to steal the potion’s secret recipe.
Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion stars Christian Clavier, Guillaume Briat, Alex Lutz and Alexandre Astier who also directs the movie with Louis Clichy.
The movie lands in the UK and Ireland on August 30, 2019.
