Asterix is back! He returns with a story as tight as a slingshot. In Asterix’s new adventure, everyone is persistently searching for the chieftain’s shield. This is the shield that one of the Gallic chieftains placed at Julius Caesar’s feet as a sign of surrender (let’s face it, he wasn’t very gentle). The Romans thus subjugated Gaul. But Asterix, Obelix and their Gallic friends don’t just give up! All in turn – Gauls and Romans – are looking for the lost shield, which is not just a myth. Caesar wants to organize a magnificent triumph with him and show the Gauls who is the master. Well, Asterix and Obelix, of course – to put it mildly – do not agree with him and will do everything to overtake the Romans in their search for the shield. Who dares say they won’t succeed? And of course: whoever laughs last… has read the new Asterix!
