The Gauls are revolting!

Set in 50 B.C., Asterix and Obelix are living in a small but well-protected village in Gaul, where a magic potion concocted by Druids turns the townsfolk into mighty soldiers. When Roman troops carve a path through Gaul to reach the English Channel, Caesar and his aide de camp Detritus discover the secret elixir and capture the Druid leader who knows its formula, and Asterix and Obelix are sent off to rescue them.

Asterix und Obelix stehen vor ungewöhnlichen Schwierigkeiten: Ihr Erzfeind Caesar sitzt im Kerker und dessen Gouverneur Destructivus hat die Macht und den Zaubertrank an sich gerissen. Als dann noch Asterix in die Fänge des ruchlosen Römers gerät, scheint nur noch Obelix das Dorf und seine Freunde retten zu können - der ausgerechnet jetzt ziemlich durcheinander ist, denn er ist schwer verliebt...

Toute la Gaule est occupée. Toute ? Non ! Un petit village résiste encore et toujours à l'envahisseur ! À coup de potion magique et d'effets spéciaux survitaminés, les irréductibles Astérix et Obélix protègent les Gaulois des stratagèmes de l'ignoble Détritus !

Asterix & Obelix contro Cesare
  • a.k.a. Asterix E Obelix Contro Cesare Titolo Alternativo

La pozione magica che il druido Panoramix somministra ai Galli li rende invincibili dinanzi alle legioni romane. L'infido Detritus riuscirà a impadronirsi della preziosa pozione. Asterix e Obelix dovranno darsi da fare per riprendere il controllo della situazione. Il fumetto diventa carne (Depardieu) ed ossa (Benigni) per la gioia dei francesi. Ma solo per la loro perché anche gli estimatori non francofoni del fumetto hanno poco da ridere dinanzi a questa produzione ipertrofica (84 miliardi) di Claude Berri.

    The Egyptian Queen Cleopatra bets against the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar, that her people are still great, even if the times of the Pharaohs has long passed. She vows (against all logic) to build a new palace for Caesar within three months. Since all her architects are either busy otherwise or too conservative in style, this ambivalent honor falls to Edifis. He is to build the palace and be covered in gold or, if not, his fate is to be eaten by crocodiles. Edifis calls upon an old friend to help him out: The fabulous Druid Getafix from Gaul, who brews a fantastic potion that gives supernatural strength. In order to help and protect the old Druid, Asterix and Obelix accompany him on his journey to Egypt. When Julius Caesar gets wind of the project succeeding, he has the building site attacked by his troops in order to win the bet and not lose face. But just like the local pirates, he hasn't counted on Asterix and Obelix.
