For this, he gave missions Anglaigus architect whose works do not collapse only sometimes , construction of the “Domain of the Gods“, a huge complex of buildings surrounding the village …
Let me explain something here.This is comes from a comic book that started on August October 29 1959. I remember this comic books when I was a kid I used to read it a lot and loved it. It is French comic book. It was written by René Goscinny and illustrated by Albert Uderzo until his death in 1977. Uderzo then took over the writing until 2009, when he sold the rights to publishing company Hachette. As of 2013, 35 volumes have been released. Asterix leave in this Gaulish village and the Romans wants to take the village and the Gaulois has beat the roman every time at it. Every time the Romans finds new way to try to take the village. Now Asterix has a let’s say a secret weapon. A magic potion that he carries with him at all the time it is brewed by their druid called Getafix( in the English translation). If he drinks it he has superhuman strength. Obelix is his friend, he on the other hand when he was a kid he fell off in the pot of magic potion. There for he never needs it. You see when Asterix takes it wear off and he has to take some more but not Obelix, although he has to eat a lot of food. This is a terrific Animation made in France. It has a lot of humor in it. This time they done it well finally although I didn’t see the other ones but I heard that they are so-so. Stick with that one. Although we have now in France only A Theme Park named Park Asterix 22 miles north of Paris and every year you have 1.6 million visitors a year it is the most visited Park in France, it open in 1989. This animation of Asterix like I said is the best one of them all there has been a few of them and also in films. This one stayed true to the comic book. 2 million people in France has seen this one so far that we are waiting for the second one with the same terrific actors and the same formula. In the news they were talking about animation in France get this Japan and the U.S are the biggest country who does animation that works well. Well Japan it is no surprise to me it is a culture over there big time. The second one is Canada, third is France. Dreamworks as well as Pixar comes in Paris in this school called les Gobellins , it is an animation school open to the student 18 to 26 years of age. They come in as see if there is student who wants to work for them of course they choose the best of them.
Sorry no English subtitle in this one yet.
