Goldfinger’s Connery & Bassey Reunite

The first time they worked together it became one of the most famous feature films ever made. Now, 45 years later they’re coming together again for an animated feature.

The Hollywood Reporter indicates that Dame Shirley Bassey and retired acting legend Sean Connery are both a part of the indie CG animated “Sir Billi” for .

The story 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.

Connery will provide the voice of the lead role while Bassey will sing the title song “Guardian of the Highlands”. Alan Cumming, Miriam Margolyes, Ruby Wax, Alex Norton, Ford Kiernan, Greg Hempill, Barbara Rafferty, John Amabile, Larry Sullivan and Chris Jai Alex also lend voices to the movie.

Bassey sung the opening credits songs for three films in the James Bond franchise, two of which starred Connery as 007 – 1964’s “Goldfinger” and 1971’s “Diamonds are Forever”. “Goldfinger” has since gone on to become a cinematic classic in its own right, is still often cited as the quintessential 007 movie, and the theme is both one of cinema’s most memorable and nearly fifty years on remains Bassey’s signature tune.

Sascha and Tessa Hartmann direct the project which is in post-production and will be completed sometime next year.
