Dove Review

“Guardian of the Highlands” is an animated movie about protecting animals and the highlands in Scotland. The main character, Billi, and his animal friends, a goat named Gordie and many others all talk and work together to help those that may be in trouble. Billi is the guardian of the area and now the last beaver is being chased by one officer who has gone over the top to destroy them.

This is an intriguing film with Sir Sean Connery as the voice of Billi. At times it will make you laugh as you watch and you can see that some of his past roles are intertwined into this cartoon feature. He also shows the importance of being a part of a team, working together to protecting nature.

We award this movie our Dove “Family-Approved: Seal for ages 12+ due to some language.
