'Asterix: The Land of the Gods' is Getting a Sequel
Asterix: The Land of the Gods was released in France in 2014, and is soon opening theatrically in the UK (1st April, 2016), where it will be known as Asterix and Obelix: The Mansion of the Gods. At A113Animation, we enjoyed that film a lot, so we were pretty stoked when we learned this morning that a sequel was on its way.
The news came from the Mikros Image (a VFX company that was responsible for the animation on the first Asterix movie) website, where a job offer clearly mentions an Asterix 2 being in the works.
Asterix: The Land of the Gods was a critical and financial success, so it only makes sense to see that a sequel is being developed. We don't know yet if Alexandre Astier (writer, co-director) and Louis Clichy (co-director) will be back to helm the yet untitled Asterix 2, but that's very likely.
