Asterix and Obelix comics 5 : the title and the date of the filming revealed !

And of 5 ! Seven years after the release of Asterix and Obelix : in The service of His Majesty, a new movie centered around two characters from René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo is in preparation. For this new film in live-action (that is to say, with actors), it is an original story that will be staged. And we already know the name of the director. After Claude Zidi, Alain Chabat, Frédéric Forestier and Thomas Langmann, as well as Laurent Tirard, it’s Guillaume Canet who will stick. Check out the first info with the title and date of the filming.

Born in 1959 in the journal Pilot prior to the publication in 1961 of Asterix, the Gaul, the adventures of the Gauls and his friend, who fell into the magic potion when he was little continues to fascinate the French. The last album, The Daughter of Vercingetorix, was released on Thursday 24 October in all bookstores, and the story will also continue in the cinema. The final component of the saga (not counting the adaptations in cartoon), Asterix and Obelix : in The service of Her Majesty, had not really attracted the crowds with only 3.8 million viewers in cinemas (compared to $ 14.5 million for Asterix and Obelix : Mission Cleopatra).

Asterix and Obelix in the Middle kingdom

Announced in November 2017 by the French Film, the fifth pane of the adventures of Asterix and Obelix is in preparation ! The info has been confirmed on Monday 28 October.

The shooting should begin in the spring of 2020, but it is not known if Edouard Baer and Gerard Depardieu will revert to their roles.
