First Footage And Making-Of Video For ASTERIX: THE LAND OF THE GODS

The first actual footage and a making-of video for the French 3D/CG feature length animated film Asterix: The Land of the Gods has arrived. Check it out after the jump.

The lucky few who had the opportunity to visit the International Festival of Annecy Animation Film during this past week was able to catch a preview of the upcoming Asterix: The Land of the Gods (aka Astérix: Le Domaine des Dieux).  While a trailer hasn't been revealed for the Belgium comic adaptation of the same name just yet, a news clip was broadcast on M6 that features footage of Julius Caesar unveiling his plans to get rid of these indominable Gauls and a short interview with the two directors, Louis Clichy and Alexandre Astier.

Also on the  children show, Kid & Toi, there is a 4-minute making-of video with co-director Louis Clichy providing a tour of the studio and discussing the animation process.  The animation and VFX was produced by Mikros Image, Grid Animation and Dreamwall.

Julius Caesar unveils his latest plan to get rid of those indomitable Gauls once and for all. As his army has not been able to crush “the last pocket of resistance”, he decides to try a stealth invasion: civilization delivered to the village gates! He builds a new Rome-The Land of the Gods-around Asterix’s village, pressuring the Gauls to assimilate or vanish. Despite Asterix and Obelix’s plans to stop the construction work, the buildings quickly rise and the Roman citizens start to peacefully invade their surroundings, bringing chaos to Asterix’s village. Could this finally mean victory for Caesar?

Asterix: The Land of the Gods is set for theatrical release in France on November 26th, 2014 while a global release is tentatively scheduled in the first quater of 2015.
