Check out this footage from Asterix: The Land of the Gods

Wow! I just saw some of the first 3D animated footage from the upcoming Asterix: The Land of the Gods movie, and it makes me wish two things, 1) That I could speak French, and 2) that Asterix was more popular in the United States so we could get this movie in theaters stateside.

This clip comes from M6 and features Caesar revealing his plans for those Gauls that keep plaguing the Romans.

GAH! I want to see this NOW! Mansion of the Gods may have to be the next Asterix volume reviewed during our annual Thanksgiving Retro Review.

With the intent to wipe out the Gaulish village by any means necessary, Caesar concocts a plan to absorb the villagers into Roman culture by having an estate built next to the village to start a new Roman colony. The colony is to be called the Mansions of the Gods.
