** Ironically, the live action film ''Asterix and Obelix: God Save Britannia'' did not make it to Britain. Though the publisher of the French DVD did put in the option of English subtitles, perhaps to compensate for this.

* CanonDiscontinuity: ''The Twelve Tasks of Astérix'' is ignored by the albums that were published after its release, and ''had'' to if one wanted to go on with the series, since it ended with Cæsar retiring to the countryside and Astérix being put in charge of Rome in its place. (There is a popular {{Fanon}}, however, that ''The Twelve Tasks'' must be taken as an ending to the series as a whole, happening after any other item of the series, even those released after ''Twelve Tasks''. It has never been confirmed or informed by the official creators.)
