Chinese adventure of the Gauls
Asterix and Obelix is a series of fantastic comedy films that has been on screens since the end of the last century. The main characters are funny friends, who have in stock some kind of magic potionthat turns them into real superheroes. One of the last projects of the series came out in 2012, and then the title characters went to Britain.
Now they are waiting for another trip, and this time to the Middle Kingdom. The upcoming part, which comes out under the heading “Silk Road”, will send the Gauls to China. Their task is to help the princess, who is suffering from the illegal overthrow of her mother from the imperial throne. Of course, the mission will not go smoothly – Roman troops have already advanced towards the Celestial Empire and are ready to expand the zone of influence of the restless Caesar.
Sass-Yi understands that the valiant Gauls are her only salvation, because they have a magical drink in their hands that can bestow superhuman strength on them. Inseparable comrades agree to help – this is how their “Silk Road” begins. And how this adventure will end, we will find out in the film “Asterix and Obelix: China”, the release date of which is worth waiting for February 1, 2023.

So we learned that there was a castling in the composition of the actors – the characters will go to the Celestial Empire with other people.
Initially, the release date for the film about the adventures of Asterix and Obelix in the Celestial Empire was planned earlier – filming was supposed to begin in 2020, but due to the pandemic were shifted to 2021. Following the filming schedule, the release date also moved out, shifting as far as 2023.
Almost immediately after the start of the filming process, information about the actors appeared. Asterix has always been fickle – in different parts of the project he was played by Clovis Cornillac, Christian Clavier, Eduard Ber. Now Guillaume Canet will have to embody the character. The news about the change of actor for this role was not a surprise.. Gerard Depardieu was a regular performer of the role of Obelix, but this time he will not appear on the screen. Now the colorful Gaul will be played by the French actor Gilles Lelouch.
