New Asterix Animated Picture: Asterix and the Vikings

Postby Jojo » Thu May 05, 2005 4:19 pm

Hello!


I don't know if any Asterix movies are ever shown in theatres in the US. However, there will be a new Asterix movie this year, and surprise surprise, it will be "Asterix and the Vikings". Here you can see a trailer (Real Player):

The language is French, sorry, "Freedom".

Additionally I learned the directors of this movie are Stefan Fjeldmark and Jesper Møller. I don't know these guys but their names are undoubtedly Danish. So I wonder if it is pure chance that LEGO is coming up with an own Viking line THIS year?

I read the comic. It was one of those ol' good ones when Goscinny still did the writing. Im really looking forward to this!

You all MUST read the comic book. The end is quite hilarious! :D

Everyone seems rather mad about vikings these days... Playmobil, Megabloks, Lego... Like it was europe in the 1880's or something. :!:

Europe in the 1880's? Is this a reference to some European sentiments for the vikings that i am not aware of? Lol, if your talking about the period when the vikings reigned terror over Europe i think the date should be moved back a few centuries. Not trying to be cynical, I'm just curious.

I think what he was referring to the age of Imperialism and how everyone was mad about everything.... Am I right?

Anyway, I've only seen one Asterix movie. My brother had to bring it all the way from France. It's great stuff that most of us are deprived of *sigh*

in the 1800's, there was a viking madness. Everyone wanted some kind of relations to vikings. Unfortunatly it also spawned bad things such as believes of the superior nordic race, which was the beginning of the nazism, actually. Worse was of what Ive heard of yet, the Götaförbundet, in which a number of swedish writers stood together to form a new era of writing to inspire the people to not tolerate the weaker peoples(southern europe) opression of the "superior". Swedes didnt care much, but later a certain evil little man with a wierd mustacho would take up this... Its a long story of an evil era, so i wont tell more right now.

Sorry for going off-topic. :oops:

Luckily we celebrate exactly today the end of the Nazi terror over Europe.

And at Asterix there is shown that the vikings are not superior. At least not superior to the Gauls :-)

I would watch those movies if they were in english, or perhaps in German (I know a little german from school). Actually, if it was convienent to buy them, I would watch them anyway.

P.S. Are viking legos already released anywhere in the world?
