ASTERIX: THE SECRET OF THE MAGIC POTION - OFFICIAL UK TRAILER - ON DIGITAL NOW & ON DVD NOW.
In the forest outside the village of indomitable Gauls, the druid Getafix (John Innes) falls from a tree, breaking his foot. Worried about his mortality, he resolves to find a successor to inherit the secret recipe of his magic potion which imbues the user with superhuman strength. He is escorted to a meeting of his fellow druids by Asterix (Ken Kramer) and Obelix (C. Ernst Harth), while a creative young village girl named Pectine (Lévanah Solomon) has stowed away in his cauldron. The meeting is disrupted by Getafix's nemesis, Sulfurix (Daniel Mesguich), who wreaks havoc before being chased away. Getafix then travels throughout Gaul to meet with aspiring young druids in his quest for a successor. He is accompanied by Chief Vitalstatistix (Don Brown) and the village's other men, with the exception of Cacofonix (Andrew Cownden), who remains behind with the village women and a reserve supply of magic potion to repel attacks by Roman legionaries.
Sulfurix offers Julius Caesar (Mark Oliver) the chance to secure the recipe and is assisted by Senator Tomcrus (Olivier Saladin), who plots to attack the village until it runs out of potion. Sulfurix recruits Teleferix (Alex Lutz), a promising young druid, and teaches him magic in order to impress Getafix. Asterix uncovers their plot but is captured before he can warn the others. Sulfurix burns down the sacred forest of the druids, while Getafix chooses Teleferix as his successor. News soon reaches the Gauls that Cacofonix and the women have run out of magic potion.
Getafix has Obelix, Pectine and Teleferix help him source most of the ingredients for the potion. However, Sulfurix steals them and freezes Obelix with a spell. Getafix returns home for his reserve ingredients, but finds them squandered by his fellow druids vying to make their own concoctions. Sulfurix orders Teleferix to make the potion, but a key ingredient is missing. Sulfurix inadvertently augments the incomplete mixture with his fire magic, consumes the resultant potion and attacks both the Gauls and the Romans.
