Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods, first published in 1971, will be a live-action film due out in late 2011/ early 2012.

Wouldn't it be great to have Asterix and Tintin in the same cinema?

That article seems to be saying it will be animated (for example, the bit where he says he doesn’t know if by 3D they mean it will be 3D animation, or if it will be a 3D experience, using glasses, and that he’d prefer cel animation), rather than another live-action film.

I hope it is live action, because Asterix and the Vikings was awful.

I have recently seen this film with an English (American) dub.
As a fan of Asterix the Gaul it's been a very long time since there was a decent Asterix animated feature-film, probably not since the 80's.

The last one, Asterix and the Vikings (2006) was, in my opinion, probably the worst in the series.

Asterix: The Mansion of the Gods is a welcome return to form, and it's very witty.

At first I was put off by the change in animation direction, but if anything it brings a new lease of life to a feature film series that hasn't really had anything interesting in over two decades.

I watched the English-dubbed version which features predominately American accents, which was problematic in Asterix and the Big Fight.

The voice acting here is good, but nothing like the films of the 80's in terms of British dubbing.

The animation was great and didn't feel too much like watching a video game.

This film has a lot of satire on capitalism in it, which is a much needed boost to the damp scripts of previous films.

Asterix: The Mansion of the Gods is a must see for Asterix fans new and old.
