Asterix, Obelix and Dogmatix are Coming to Netflix in 2023

Netflix are bringing Asterix the Gaul to the small screen with a new 3D animated series from renowned French auteur and playwright Alain Chabat. The series, coming in 2023, will be the first-ever animated limited series based on the timeless classic that has been published since 1961. The long-running graphic novel has also been made into 15 feature films including 2002’s Mission Cléopâtre,’ the most successful of them all, which was also directed by Chabat.

The stories tell the saga of the pugnacious warrior and his irreverent village companions who keep a tiny corner of ancient Gaul free from bumbling Roman invaders. The Netflix series will be adapted from one of the classic volumes, Asterix and the Big Fight, where the Romans, after being constantly embarrassed by Asterix and his village cohorts, organize a brawl between rival Gaulish chiefs and try to fix the result by kidnapping a druid along with his much-needed magic potion. Spoiler alert: it doesn’t go as planned.
