Europe's popular comic character Asterix and his well-rounded sidekick Obelix is getting the CG/3D animated treatment for the first time in Asterix: The Land of the Gods
(aka Astérix: Le Domaine des Dieux) from the directing team Louis Clichy and Alexandre Astier and Mikros Image's animation studio. The film is based on the 17th volume of the comic series by writer René Goscinny and artist Albert Uderzo.
Julius Caesar unveils his latest plan to get rid of those indomitable Gauls once and for all. As his army has not been able to crush "the last pocket of resistance", he decides to try a stealth invasion: civilization delivered to the village gates! He builds a new Rome - The Land of the Gods - around Asterix's village, pressuring the Gauls to assimilate or vanish. Despite Asterix and Obelix's plans to stop the construction work, the buildings quickly rise and the Roman citizens start to peacefully invade their surroundings, bringing chaos to Asterix's village. Could this finally mean victory for Caesar?
