First appearance of the Adventures of Asterix the Gaul on the big screen, and the first success in the series. Originally planned for broadcast on television, the potential of this first cartoon film convinced the Siritzky brothers (cinema owners) to distribute it in cinemas, just like a Disney production! And indeed the film was hugely successful, in France and abroad. It was a real hit with German audiences in particular.
