Sean Connery hasn’t made a film since 2003′s The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen because apparently he wanted to go out on the lowest note possible.  However, Connery is making a semi-return as he’s voicing the lead character in the animated film, Sir Billi.  Connery is a producer on the project and has been heavily involved with its production.  Today, THR reports that Shirley Bassey, who wrote the famous theme song of the 1964 James Bond film Goldfinger, will sing the title song of Sir Billi, “Guardian of the Highlands.”  Sean Connery helping to shepherd this indie animated feature through production and getting a legend like Shirley Bassey to sing the theme is all really positive and I’m glad to hear of his contributions.  So what’s this movie about?  From THR:  The movie centers on a retired, skateboarding veterinarian who lives in a remote Scottish village and who spearheads the rescue of an illegal fugitive who also happens to be a beaver.

That sounds batshit insane.

    I think so also. I like other James Bond title songs, but Shirley was so great she did ones for three movies. In case you're interested, she actually did a fourth, but it wasn't used. It' was “Mr. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang” and it was for “Thunderball”. Unfortunately (in my opinion), what was used was the one by Tom Jones (no disrespect intended to Tom).
