Oh my… I think I can foresee a VERY GOOD and funny Astérix movie. First, allow me to tell you some words about the directors. The first, Alexandre Astier, is someone we really love in France, thanks to his series Kaamelott, a funny, absurd show about King Arthur and his knights (he also made the musics of the show and ‘hired’ his familly for the cast, which is quite lovely…). It has a very Monty Python-esque humor, with the actors saying a lot of crazy, anachronical stuff with an incredible seriousness.
The second director, Louis Clichy, is also someone we really love in the animation scene since he’s the one who animated the infamous “A Quoi ça Sert l’Amour" by Edith Piaf. He’s been at Pixar for several years, working on Wall-E and Up before coming back to France.
Mix the both of them and I think we’ll have a little perl. ;) Now for the transcript (as you could see it’s a very accurate parody of our working system! XDD):
This Christmas… The most powerful army… The most disciplined… The most merciless… Breaks in Gaul!
Centurion: CHAAAARGE!!… Well? What are you doing?
Soldier 1: We’re “doing that” we voted a general strike!
Soldier 2: Unanimously!
Soldier 3: We reckon this assault to be potentially dangerous!
Centurion: Of course it’s dangerous! It’s an assault! We raze a village and all!
Soldier 1: We already said it and repeated it, the war, YES, the hardness, NO!
Centurion: Alright. I get it, I’m going down. (in the sense he’s gonna kick their butt)
