Roger Carel, who had voiced Asterix in French since the 1960s, had retired and so was replaced by Christian Clavier who had played Asterix in the first two live action films.

Let's Bash the Romans: The Making

In 2014 Asterix: The Mansions of the Gods was the year's most successful animated film in France, where it made $26 million and over $55 million worldwide, despite not being released in the US at all. After this phenomenal success a sequel was inevitable. Again French studio Mikros Animation, a division of Mikros Image and owned by Technicolor, did the animation, with film made by writer/director Alexandre Astier and former Pixar animator Louis Clichy. This was produced by M6 Studio who had produced both previous Asterix animated films. The production and merchandising budget was €37 million.
