In Free Birds, Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson play turkeys who travel back in time! Jake (Harrelson), calls upon Reggie (Wilson), a turkey who has been pardoned by the president and now lives in luxury, to join him on a mission to go back to the first Thanksgiving and make sure turkeys never get on the menu.
Expect a lot of jokes like this:
“Turkey, sir, how did we address it?”
“Uh, with cranberry sauce.”
Amy Poehler and George Takei also lend their voices. Plus, there’s a Green Day song. Watch the trailer below:
Free Birds is slated to open November 1, in 3D and 2D, just in time to make your kids fall in love with the turkeys and then not want to eat them for Thanksgiving. Wait, was that the plan all along?
