It is the first and to this day, only Asterix film not to be made in a French-speaking country, and loosely adapts the comic book Asterix and the Great Crossing. Two songs of the film were performed by the French band Zouk Machine. Circa 50 BC, Julius Caesar has had enough when yet another of his Roman legions is smashed to pieces by that one indomitable Gaulish village because of the magic potion of their druid Getafix, so he decides to tackle the problem at the root before conspiratorial senators exploit his humiliation.
He orders his sycophant Lucullus to capture the druid who they believe to be immortal and throw him over the edge of the world which they believe to be flat as a pizza.
Following a storm, Asterix, Obelix, Dogmatix and Getafix think they have reached the edge of the world Meanwhile in Gaul, Caesar now sees his chance to overrun the village, and besieges it. In Asterix Conquers America, she has the body proportions of a bathing suit model and a much prettier face, and Obelix is understandably sad to leave her. Adaptation Expansion : While the film cuts the subplot with the Vikings, it adds two new subplots to the story: Caesar wanting Getafix tossed off the edge of the world so he can conquer the village without having to face magic potion-empowered villagers anymore.
The evil Native American medicine man wanting to get his hands on the magic potion after Getafix uses it to best him in a magic duel. They were later amalgamated into Asterix and the Vikings , the adaptation of Asterix and the Normans.
Romans talk about pizzas. The pizza was invented in the 19th century. Getafix drops the name "Amerix" to name the land in the French version. Obelix saves her from it. Ascended Extra : Getafix. In The Great Crossing, he stayed in the village and only appeared at the very beginning and very end of the comic. Also the Romans, who in the comic only appeared at the start of the story and are not on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle. Here, they cause the conflict by abducting Getafix, and come very close to finally bringing the Gaulish village to its knees.
And they get their asses kicked. As Long as It Sounds Foreign : The Natives talk using a random mix of North American place names that were taken from words in the languages of the actual tribes that lived in those regions. Asterix makes quick work of it with the magic potion. Bullet Catch : Obelix catches a tomahawk that was thrown at Asterix and Getafix, who were tied to a totem. Lucullus, the sycophantic Roman patrician who Caesar tasks with kidnapping Getafix and bringing him to the edge of the world, did not appear in any Asterix comic book before.
The evil medicine man does not originate in any of the comic books either. Catapult to Glory : Lucullus catapults Getafix from his trireme, thinking they have reached the edge of the world. He lands in North America. The centurion has the idea to catapult a lion on the village. Which lands right in the arms of Caesar. Darkest Hour : This story is the only one where the Undefeatable Little Village has been soundly militarily defeated by the Romans.
Dressing as the Enemy : Asterix and Obelix knock two legionaries out and steal their clothes to infiltrate the Roman camp where the Gaulish villagers are prisoners and bring them the magic potion in amphoras. Exact Words : Before attacking the Gaulish village at the beginning, the Roman centurion trains his legion by ordering it to form a "turtle" testudo in Latin. They obey and form the shape of a literal turtle with their shields instead of the historical testudo formation.
Fat Bastard : Lucullus is as overweight as he is evil, complete with Evil Laughs. Throwing Dogmatix to the sharks is particularly vile as Kick the Dog acts go. Flat World : Both the Romans and the Gauls believe the world is flat. The Romans capture Getafix and plan to throw him at "the edge of the world" since they believe him to be immortal. The protagonists finding out about that new continent across the ocean proves them wrong.
He is saved in the nick of time by a dolphin that heroically jumps in action, knocks the shark out and brings him back to Asterix and Obelix. The dolphin then leads them to the trireme of Lucullus. Injun Country : Asterix, Obelix and Getafix land in a stange mix of every imaginable type of land inhabited by Native Americans instead of what should be just the Northern woodlands.
The Natives meanwhile are portrayed with Tipis and Totem Poles. Mobile Shrubbery : Caesar uses a barrel to escape the Roman camp after the Gauls regain their magic potion and wreak havoc at the end. Obelix meanwhile wakes up and sees Asterix as a scary green buffalo, which causes him to run away in terror and crash into everything in his way.
It is clearly not the same character between films still. Running Gag : Once again, a Roman legion tries to conquer the Gaulish village at the beginning. And once again, it ends up on the receiving end of a Curb-Stomp Battle by the magic potion-empowered villagers.
Upon exploring America, Asterix and Obelix walk past a Mount Rushmore expy, which has the faces of four natives carved in the mountain, including those of the chief and the medicine man they meet later.
The Savage Indians : Natives are portrayed like this at first, attacking Asterix and tying him up to a totem with Getafix with both of them to be executed in a ritual.
Partly justified since they believe Getafix to be immortal, but they never even try to kill him on the spot to see if this is true. You Are Too Late : Asterix, Obelix and Getafix make it back to Gaul, only to discover the Romans have succesfully ravaged their village and taken all the other Gauls captive, except for Cacofonix. Fortunately, the three are not too late to save their fellow Gauls, since they are locked in a big mobile cage in a nearby Roman Camp waiting to be deported to Rome.
