As a bonus feature for the German DVD release, each Asterix film was given a new dubbing in a German dialect. This film was dubbed in Kölsch (dialect spoken in Cologne).
The American version of the movie adds a narrator (who speaks during many of silent moments) as well add many new lines spoken off screen. This was included to add exposition for people not familiar with Asterix (explain the setting, Obelix back story etc.) This version was translated into other languages such as Polish.
