Storyline

In the year 50 BC Gaul is occupied by the romans - nearly. But the small village of Asterix and his friends still resists the Roman legions with the aid of their druid's magic potion, which gives superhuman strength. Learning of this potion, a Roman centurion kidnaps the druid to get the secret formula out of him. Written by Michael Zink

Wrong dubbing credits
21 October 2018 | by nsb68See all my reviews

I don't know where these credits come from but that's definitely not Paul Angelis, Terry Scott etc on the English language version of this. They are clearly American actors for a start.

The terrible dubbing and the crude animation (so unlike the beautiful work of the originals) spoils this film for me.
