ASTERIX: THE SECRET OF THE MAGIC POTION - OFFICIAL UK TRAILER - ON DIGITAL NOW & ON DVD NOW.
While visiting the forest outside his village, Getafix (John Innes) breaks his foot in an accident. Worried about his mortality, he announces his intention to seek a successor who shall inherit the recipe of the magic potion after he is gone. Despite Asterix's objections to his plan, Getafix holds a meeting with his fellow druids to inform them of his search for a successor, and makes plans to meet with their candidates. In order to protect him during this search, Chief Vitalstatistix (Don Brown) instructs Asterix (Ken Kramer) and Obelix (C. Ernst Harth) and the village's men to accompany the druid, with the exception of Cacofonix (Andrew Cownden), who is ordered to help the women in protecting the village from the Romans with their reserve supply of potion. Alongside the men, Getafix allows a young girl named Pectine (Lévanah Solomon), who admires him and impresses him with her ideas, to join with the group on their journey.
Caesar learns about the Gauls' departure, before he is shortly greeted by Sulfurix (Daniel Mesguich), Getafix's old rival. Bitter of his success with the magic potion and having learnt of Getafix's plans, Sulfurix offers Caesar the chance to secure the recipe, and receives help from his right-hand man Tomcrus (Olivier Saladin) to acquire it. In order to secure it, Sulfurix recruits Teleferix (Alex Lutz), a young druid, and teaches him druidism and fire magic in order to make him a worthy candidate. Asterix soon uncovers their plot after an argument with Getafix over his plans, but is captured before he can warn the others, with Sulfurix burning down the meeting hall of the druids with his fire magic out of spite. Getafix is soon led towards Teleferix who impresses him with what he had been taught, and chooses him as his successor, teaching him the recipe. News soon reaches the Gauls that Cacofonix and the women have run out of magic potion.
