Genre Animated adventure
The Asterix adventure began in 1959 with the character’s first appearance in the launch issue of the magazine Pilote. And now the gang is about to embark on an adventure to expand their fan base with an all-new animated feature in Asterix: Land of the Gods.
The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely…
One small village of indomitable Gauls still holds out against the invaders. Julius Caesar, exasperated by the situation, decides to change tactics: since his armies are unable to prevail through force, Roman civilisation itself will charm the barbaric Gauls. And so he has a luxurious housing complex built near the village for Roman families: “The Mansions of the Gods”.
Will our Gaulish friends resist the lure of easy money and Roman comforts? Will their village become a simple tourist attraction? Asterix and Obelix are going to do all they can to thwart Caesar’s plans.
