Asterix, the beloved satirical French comic series about the last Gaulish village holding out against Roman rule, is heading to Netflix. The streaming giant announced Wednesday that it has partnered with the series’ publisher, Hachette’s Les Editions Albert René, to create an “animated limited series” based on the beloved property.
