Synopsis by Eleanor Mannikka
Asterix, the popular French cartoon character, comes back to the big screen in this second feature-length animated film by Pino Van Lamsweerde. Helped (and occasionally hindered) by his muscular sidekick Obelix and his faithful pooch Idefix ("fixed idea"), Asterix must go to Britain to come to the rescue of his cousin. The Roman legions are about to run roughshod over his cousin's village and must be stopped. Saddled with the task of getting a huge barrel through the city of Londinium, Asterix meets with unexpected circumstances. The end result is a new brew made of tea leaves and a whole new custom.
