The teaser for the French CG animated feature Astérix: Le Domaine des Dieux (Asterix: The Land of the Gods) has been released online. The film is set 2 centuries ago during the reign of Ceasar, and will adapt the book The Mansions of the Gods from the iconic French comic series written by Rene Goscinny and drawn by Albert Uderzo.
Astérix: Le Domaine des Dieux is directed by Alexander Astier and Louis Clichy, with animation handled by Universal’s Mac Guff Ligne and Mikros Image Animation Paris. You can check out the teaser below:
The film is scheduled for a November 26, 2014 release in France.[UPDATE] We would like to thank a helpful Toonbarn reader for pointing out the following via the comments:
“Mac Guff is not part of this project. It was at the very begining, until Mac Guff sold its animation branch to Illumination Entertainment. That’s why there are pre-production stuff signed by Mac Guff but the actual movie is not.”
