It will be necessary to wait a little before discovering the duo on the big screen. The film is scheduled to air from February 1, 2023 in dark rooms. Notice to nostalgics, this will be the very first live action film without Gérard Depardieu in the role of Obélix. This fifth feature film will also be totally original: the Gaul may have traveled around the world, but he never left for China in the albums of René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.
