Asterix 3D Feature Film
Rumours of a 3D Asterix feature film, adapted from 'The Mansion Of The Gods', have been circulating since late 2010. The first official still from 'Asterix Et Le Domaine Des Dieux', has now been released online. There have been 8 previous animated Asterix films but this is the first 3D CG feature. The still depicts a rather convincingly rendered CGI Obelix sampling some magic potion... can't wait to see more, but we might have to wait until the 2014 release date.
Directed by Louis de Clichy ('WALL·E' and 'Up') and Alexandre Astier and produced by VFX/post house Mikros Image... Mikros Image announced earlier this month that they’ve launched a new studio dedicated to feature animation, and they intend to produce a film every 18-20 months.
