Synopsis

The indomitable French heroes Asterix and Obelix are back for another rollicking adventure! Beloved French superstar Gérard Depardieu appears for the fourth time as Obelix, joined by Édouard Baer as Asterix and the legendary Catherine Deneuve as Queen Cordelia. When Julius Caesar lands on the island of Britannia, his mind set on conquering yet another territory for his vast empire, one small village bravely holds out against the attack of the Roman Empire’s legions. The situation in the village becomes critical, so Cordelia, Queen of the Britons, asks her loyal officer Jolitorax to travel across the sea to Gaul to seek assistance from his second cousin: Asterix, that perennial thorn in Caesar’s side. A barrel of Asterix’s magic potion is sure to help the besieged Britons, but getting it to Jolitorax’s village is easier said than done.
