About Asterix and Obelix: Middle Kingdom

“Asterix and Obelix: Middle Kingdom” is a French live-action movie released in 2021. The movie is based on the famous French comic book series “Asterix and Obelix” created by René Goscinny and Albert Uderzo.


Behind the scenes of Asterix and Obelix: Middle Kingdom

The film features a mix of live-action and computer-generated imagery (CGI) to bring the world of the Gauls to life. The VFX (Visual Effects) team of MPC & The Mill behind “Asterix and Obelix: Middle Kingdom” has done an impressive job in creating a believable and immersive world for the characters. The film is set in ancient China, and the VFX team has created an entirely new world, including the Great Wall, imperial palaces, and traditional Chinese architecture.


One of the most challenging aspects of creating the VFX for this film was ensuring that the CGI elements blended seamlessly with the live-action footage. The VFX team had to ensure that the lighting, shadows, and reflections on the CGI elements matched those in the live-action footage. They also had to ensure that the CGI characters and props looked natural and interacted with the live-action actors in a believable way.


The VFX team used a combination of traditional animation techniques and cutting-edge technology to bring the characters to life. They used motion capture technology to record the performances of the actors and then used this data to animate the CGI characters. The team also used advanced software to simulate cloth and hair movement to ensure that the characters looked realistic.


In addition to creating the world and characters, the VFX team also worked on several action sequences in the movie. They created explosions, fire, and smoke effects, as well as enhancing the movements of the actors during fight scenes.


Overall, the VFX in “Asterix and Obelix: Middle Kingdom” is a significant achievement, and the team behind it deserves recognition for their hard work and dedication. The result is a visually stunning movie that immerses the audience in the world of Asterix and Obelix like never before.
