Did you know that a special “Sir Billi” tartan was created for our film? It was exclusively manufactured by Lochcarron of Scotland, based in Hawick. The ‘Sir Billi’ tartan fabric was woven over a period of ten weeks, then registered as a member of the Scottish Tartans Authority, proving it’s authenticity for the hero’s real-life and film wardrobes.
Sir Billi is also Scotland’s first full length animated feature. Academy Award® nominated Scottish composer Patrick Doyle, (“Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire,” “Sense and Sensibility”), created the film’s music score and British singing legend Dame Shirley Bassey also joined the project to perform the title track “Guardian of the Highlands,” marking the first time Connery and Shirley have worked together since the 1965 James Bond film “Goldfinger.”
