L'Empire du milieu,

on February 1, 2023. We will therefore have to be patient before discovering Guillaume Canet's approach to the most famous of the Gauls. , of which he is at the same time the interpreter, the director and the co-writer.

In this new unprecedented adventure, Asterix and Obelix see the Chinese princess Fu Yi arrive in their village, victim of a coup in her country and who has come to ask for help.

With its budget of 60 million euros and "big battle scenes" according to its director,

The Middle Empire
