Sean Connery’s animated film Sir Billi, where he is a skateboarding veterinarian battling to save a beaver (seriously), is getting a US release and a new title to go along with it Guardian of the Highlands. It also has the scariest DVD cover I’ve ever seen. Ever.
It can be yours on April 8th! Don’t say you weren’t warned, because that’s what TarsTarkas.NET does. Warns people who go and buy these films anyway. Also I’ll probably get this film. Because even I don’t listen to myself!
Heart warming and hilarious, Guardian of the Highlands features an all-star cast including Academy Award® winner Sir Sean Connery in his first ever animated voice-over role as Sir Billi, the Guardian of the Highlands.
This is an adventure story about an inimitable Highland hero – a grandpa. As active senior skateboarding veterinarian he goes above and beyond the call of duty fighting villainous policemen and powerful lairds in a battle to save an illegal fugitive – Bessie Boo the beaver! Sir Billi braves treacherous ravines and hazardous gullies with his sidekick Gordon the Goat (Alan Cumming) to save Bessie Boo and Wee Dave the rabbit as they hurtle down a perilous river.
Explore the powerful force of this international Highland community, with its unrivalled landscapes, breathtaking scenery and hidden secrets. Discover the power of the local people when they unite as one against evil and embark on an expedition like no other. Sir Billi delivers the charm and panache that one would expect of a true Highlander. As the Guardian of the Highlands, everyone will want a grandpa like Sir Billi!
