The 88-year-old senior actor will lend his voice in a six-minutes long animated film 'Tim' tributed to the 'A Nightmare Before Christmas' filmmaker.
Horror legend Sir Christopher Lee has narrated a special animated film tribute to his moviemaker pal Tim Burton.
"The Lord of the Rings" star is the star of writer/filmmaker Brian Joseph Ochab's stop-motion picture "Tim", which was inspired by the "Alice In Wonderland" director's first short film "Vincent", narrated by another horror movie icon, Vincent Price.
"Tim" follows the story of a young boy who aspires to be just like Burton and Lee admits he was more than happy to get involved in the six-minute project, after the eccentric filmmaker presented him with the prestigious BAFTA Fellowship Award in London last month, February 11. Lee says, "I think this has been done in a delightful way, and I think Tim will be very pleased."
