The 2012 film Sir Billi is to Scotland what Toy Story is to the United States—the country’s first CGI animated feature. Cinedigm and Random Media have renamed the film to the more majestic-sounding Guardian Of The Highlands and will release it on DVD, digital and On Demand on April 8th.

The film, written by Tessa Hartmann and directed by Sascha Hartmann, stars Sean Connery as an old skateboard-loving veterinarian who is on a mission to save Bessie Boo the beaver. It currently has a 0% rating on Rotten Tomatoes, but that hardly dampens my enthusiasm for seeing the film. It can be pre-ordered on Amazon.
