Give Asterix the gold medal for best-selling series ever, as the character gets ready for his close-up in the sure-to-be-blockbuster film, Asterix at the Olympic Games. It has the biggest budget of any Asterix movie ever filmed, stars Gerard Depardieu, and includes guest cameos from David Beckham, Michael Schumacher, Zinedine Zidane, and wrestler Nathan Jones.

When Asterix and the Gauls compete in Athens’ Olympic Games, they find themselves up against an unexpected restriction: their magic potion has been banned as an artificial stimulant. Can they win without it? And what tricks do their rivals have up their sleeves to ensure that Asterix and his friends go down in defeat?

This entirely new volume features a combination of stills and plot highlights, as well as behind the scenes information. It’s the perfect companion to a fun film.
