Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion (Astérix: Le secret de la potion magique) is far from the first film adaptation of René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo classic comic books. It first appeared in comic book form back in 1959 and alongside the 37 volumes that have been released to date (a 38th is on the way later this year) this is the 10th animated Asterix film. There have also been four live action versions and further four lost films. The Roman-bashing duo are now celebrating their 60th anniversary with the release of Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion and you can watch the trailer above now.
On the 60th anniversary of the much-adored comic book series, Asterix and Obelix embark on a quest across Gaul looking for a young druid worthy of learning the secret of the magic potion – a formula which has long helped to keep the Gaulish village safe against Julius Caesar and his invading army. However, once Asterix and Obelix begin their quest, all hell breaks loose at home as the Romans start attacking the village and an evil wizard named Sulfurix does everything he can to steal the potion's secret recipe.
Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion will arrive in UK cinemas on August 30.
