What happens when a pardoned turkey goes back in time to the first Thanksgiving in hopes of getting turkey off the menu? Owen Wilson and Amy Poehler play fine-feathered friends in this delightful, animated clip that demonstrates a creative way to spring some traps.
Free Birds stars the voice of Amy Poehler as a 17th-century turkey named Jenny, who becomes the love interest of Reggie, voiced by Owen Wilson, after he travels back in time.
Director Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!) told Variety at the movie premier in Westwood, California, that, “My agenda was to make a heartfelt comedy, and the only message in it is all the holidays are about pressing pause in your life and getting together with the people that you love and appreciating them.” Now that’s a message we can all swallow.
