Owen Wilson & Woody Harrelson Turkey Time Travel in 'Free Birds'
Every single year, the President of the United States pardons a single turkey from being eaten for Thanksgiving. But what happens to that turkey afterwards? Apparently he lives the life of luxury. Owen Wilson voices a pardoned turkey who has his cushy life interrupted when he's recruited by another high strung, eccentric turkey (Woody Harrelson) to go back in time and stop their kind from being on the menu at the very first Thanksgiving. Amy Poehler also lends her voice to the animated time travel adventure Free Birds from the director of Horton Hears a Who!, and it looks like some good holiday fun.
Here's the first trailer for Jimmy Hayward's Free Birds, originally from Apple:
Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!) directs Free Birds, written by Craig Mazin (The Hangover sequels), David I. Stern (Open Season sequels) and John J. Strauss (The Santa Clause sequels). Two turkeys (Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson) from opposite sides of the tracks must put aside their differences and team up to travel back in time to change the course of history - and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good. Amy Poehler, Dan Fogler, Lesley Nicol, George Takei, Colm Meaney, Keith David and Dwight Howard lend their voices to the animated film which Relativity Media releases on November 1st this fall. Funny?
