Asterix et Obelix: Mission Cleopatra on VOD

Directed by Alain Chabat | Written by Alain Chabat and Rene Goscinny

Queen Cleopatra bets against the Roman Emperor, Julius Caesar, that her people are still great, even if the times of the Pharaohs have long passed. She vows against all logic to build a new palace for Caesar within three months. Since all of her architects are either busy or too conservative in style, this ambivalent honor falls to Edifis. He is to build the palace, covered in gold, and if he fails, he is to be eaten by crocodiles. Edifis calls upon an old friend to help him out -- the fabulous Druid Getafix from Gaul -- who brews a fantastic potion that gives supernatural strength. In order to help and protect the old Druid, Asterix and Obelix accompany him on his journey to Egypt. When Julius Caesar gets wind of the project's success, he orders the site to be attacked by his troops in order to win the bet and not lose face. But, just like the local pirates, he hasn't accounted for the efforts ofAsterix and Obelix.
