As the Roman Empire continues its expansion, Julius Caesar becomes increasingly exasperated by the small village of indomitable Gauls who continue to hold out against its might. But now he’s come up with his most dastardly plan to crush their resistance. A luxury housing complex, known as the Mansion of the Gods, is to be constructed on the outskirts of the village. With the Gauls in danger of becoming a mere service industry for tourists, it’s time for magic potion-fuelled duo Asterix and Obelix to fight back against Rome’s ‘cultural’ invasion.The first animated Asterix movie in ten years (2014) is a brilliantly fun-packed family adventure with plenty of action and a fabulous satirical storyline. The superb voice cast of comic talent includes Jack Whitehall, Nick Frost, Catherine Tate, Harry Enfield and Jim Broadbent.
