ASTERIX & OBELIX: THE MIDDLE KINGDOM Posters Introduce The Main Characters Of New Live-Action Adaptation

Pathe has debuted a series of character posters for the latest live-action Asterix and Obelix movie, giving us new looks at Vincent Cassel as Caesar, Marion Cottilard as Cleopatra, and more...

We haven't really been covering the latest Asterix & Obelix movie on CBM up until now, but the comic books and animated/live-action adaptations are still wildly popular in France, Belgium and other parts of the world, so we figured we'd share these new character posters for The Middle Kingdom.

This fifth live-action film, Asterix & Obelix: The Middle Kingdom (French: Astérix et Obélix: l'Empire du Milieu), is directed by Guillaume Canet, who also stars as Asterix, and will reportedly serve as both a soft reboot of the franchise and a sequel to 2012's Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia.

The plot sees Asterix and Obelix (Gilles Lellouche) travel to Imperial China for the first time when Princess Fu Yi, the only daughter of the Chinese Emperor Han Xuandi, escapes from a rogue prince, Deng Tsin Qin, and flees to Gaul to ask the eponymous pair for help.

The posters feature every main and supporting character, including Vincent Cassel as Julius Ceasear and Marion Cottilard as Cleopatra. Check them out below along with the most recent trailer.

Asterix and Obelix: The Middle Kingdom will be released in French cinemas on February 1, 2023. Release dates for North America have yet to be announced.
