THE TRAILER HAS DROPPED: ‘Sir Billi’ – May Be Sean Connery’s Last Film

While Sean Connery is known as the quintessential James Bond, Connery has done extremely well for himself by continuing to build upon an already legendary and distinguished film career, especially before officially retiring in the mid-2000s.

Connery as Bond. James Bond.

We’ll ignore his involvement in The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

Seriously. I’m leaving this film at the wayside.

However, Screen Rant is reporting that Connery had returned to film briefly to voice Sir Billi, the titular hero of the film, which is based on a short that Connery also had a part in 2006. Sir Billi will most definitely be debuting overseas next month, but I’m not so sure this is the thing that Connery fans were waiting for.

Quick synopsis: An aging, skateboarding veterinarian—Sir Billi—decides to do the absolute most by fighting a bunch of corrupt policemen and powerful lairds in the war to save an illegal fugitive – Bessie Boo the beaver.

Eh.

I am torn between the utter f*ckery that is this concept and the awesomeness that is Sean Connery.

Here’s the trailer below:

Since the film is aimed at young children at all, it’ll probably do well regardless. Sadly, however, it won’t being wide distribution outside the United Kingdom.

From the looks of it, this will probably be Connery’s last film. I admit that like many others, I was pretty sure that he’d be taking a different route to end his awesome career, but hey. I wish him well and hope he is enjoying his retirement.
