Return to Gaul
Without a doubt, Alain Chabat is one of the favorite personalities of the French. Actor, screenwriter, director, presenter, comedian, Alain Chabat shines in the French film and television landscape for thirty years. And everything suggests that he still has many projects in his cupboards to make us laugh out loud.
After resuscitating his cult show in 2018 on TMC Burger Quiz (with the success we know), Alain Chabat will return for Netflix to the universe ofAsterix, nineteen years after the triumph (and again, to put it mildly)Asterix and Obelix: Mission Cleopatra.
Be careful, however, it will not be a sequel to his second feature film, but a 3D animated series. After his remarkable participation in the vocal casting of animated films Asterix: The Domain of the Gods and Asterix: The Secret of the Magic Potion of his friend Alexandre Astier (Kaamelott), Chabat will his first foray as a director in animation. To our colleagues from Parisian, the director of Didier entrusts :
Writing and directing an animated series has always been a dream. I am delighted to be able to do it with Asterix, of which I have been a fan for years! It promises to be an extraordinary adventure.
Great comic book lover, the director ofIn pursuit of the Marsupilami this time will adapt one of the favorite volumes of fans of the universe of René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo: The Battle of the Chiefs. The village chief, Abraracourcix, is challenged by the chief of a neighboring village, Aplusbégalix. Problem: Panoramix is unable to brew magic potion, following an accident (a menhir has fallen on his head). Particularly funny, The Battle of the Chiefs only asks to be adapted by Alain Chabat.
For the time being, no information has filtered out concerning the vocal casting, even if we suspect that Alain Chabat will lend his voice to one of the characters, and that he will call on his usual clique. The series would be scheduled for 2023. We look forward !
