(Relaxnews) – Burberry has unveiled its 2015 festive advertising campaign which pays tribute to the 15th anniversary of the cult ballet movie “Billy Elliot”.

Burberry’s short film for the occasion features a star-studded cast including British musician Sir Elton John, who provided the score for the movie’s theater adaptation, and the UK actress Julie Walters, who treaded the boards in the play. Romeo Beckham, Naomi Campbell, Rosie Huntington-Whitely and James Corden are just some of the additional stars putting in an appearance, while a series of still photographs taken by Mario Testino round out the campaign.

“Billy Elliot is an incredible film full of so much joy and energy, so it was a real thrill and a great honour to be able to celebrate its 15 year anniversary through our festive campaign,” said the British fashion house’s Chief Creative and CEO Christopher Bailey.

The campaign film will be launched Tuesday on the brand’s social media platforms at 7pm GMT.
