The year is 50 BC. Gaul is entirely occupied by the Romans. Well, not entirely…One small village still holds out against the invaders. Julius Caesar (Jim Broadbent), exasperated by the situation, decides to change tactics.
Since his armies are unable to prevail through force, Roman civilisation itself will charm the barbaric Gauls. And so he has a luxurious housing complex built near the village for Roman families, called ‘The Mansions of the Gods’.
Will our Gaulish friends resist the lure of easy money and Roman comforts? Will their village become a simple tourist attraction? Asterix (Jack Whitehall) and Obelix (Nick Frost) are going to do all they can to thwart Caesar’s plans.
In an attempt to bring a rebellious Gaulish village under his occupation Julius Caesar plans to absorb the villagers into Roman culture by building an estate of modern tenement blocks next to the village to start a new Roman colony. Our heroes Asterix and Obelix doing everything in their power to resist the Roman onslaught.
Stars : Jack Whitehall. Greg Davies. Catherine Tate. Harry Enfield.
