Vikings UK release

Beitrag: #Beitrag Wussycat »

Does anyone know when Vikings gets released in the UK? I find it odd that the English dialogue was recorded years ago but the English dub hasn't been released yet.

The Internet Movie Database has no date yet.
No news from the official site (the Missive) either as far as I have seen.

I have lived off-line for a few months, so I came on the forum looking for opinions about the film "A. and the Vikings".
I've found no thread ; have I overlooked something ?
Has the film been released only in France so far ?

I live in France, and surprisely few echoes of the film reached me. I've seen a few posters in the streets advertising the film, but little else. Nothing on TV program - but I did not spend much time watching TV in early April. No specific collectible items in my usual shops. Did I miss something ???

A month on and still no news of the English version. Is it possible that we may even see the French DVD release before an English version at the cinema!

Oddly, there was a private screening of it months ago in London. I had an invite and stupidly didn't go thinking it would be in the cinemas soon anyway ... They're probably waiting for Christmas, it looks like a snowy film.

You want opinions Christine? Very well....

Well I must say the movie is very good how ever I wasn't 100% satisfy.
There were just to many jokes from the oryginal book they didn't used (Roman Patrol, Cacofonix opsesion with Lutecia, Asterix and Obelix talking during the Viking faith) and the joke's wich were used from the book waren't as funny on the scren. Some gag's like the one obaut Vikings names end with "AF" just waren't as funny as they shud be.
Justfokix and his love interest Abba took the center place in the movie, while Asterix and Obelix, fellt to be in second place at the moments. We olsow didn't get a itndroduction (like in the book) obaut Viking, and explenation, theat they don't know fear...
I must agre with somthing I herd in a opion on the internet - Obelix talk to much. Their were many clever lines, wich rely fit more for the Asterix character, and yet Obelix got to say theam. Ther is olsow a small lack of Dogmatix who don't play any part in the story and at the moment you can forget his there.

How ever movie did greait with making the plot longer a adding new character's, wich I must agre were as good as rest of Uderzo's "Cast".
Animation was well done and music is prety cool.

Anny way - The movie is good and I think it was the best animated movie I saw this yer. Stil, I got the filing the scrip writers concetrait more on their own ideas rather the plot parts from the oryginal Book.

I just read that the german DVD-edition of "Asterix and the vikings", which will be released in November 2006, shall contain the english dubbing as well.

So, if I got it right and there still is no possiblity to watch this Asterix-cartoon in english language (in cinema or from DVD) until now, it might be a solution for you, just to order the german DVD-version and activate the english track on it.
