The first theatrical full-length computer-animated film to be made at award-winning Reel FX in Dallas, Texas, Free Birds is the story of two turkeys from opposite sides of the tracks who must put aside their differences and travel back in time to change the course of history – and get turkey off the Thanksgiving menu for good.

Directed by Jimmy Hayward (Horton Hears a Who!),  FREE BIRDS continues the comic tradition of the buddy comedy, featuring two incompatible heroes – in this case two turkeys: brainy, self-serving Reggie and dim-witted, heroic Jake – thrown into a rollicking, and ultimately life-changing, adventure.

Finding the right voices for an entire flock turkeys, a sassy time machine, contemporary government officials and pilgrims in 1621 was no simple task, but the filmmakers knew casting was crucial to the film’s benefit.

Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson came aboard Free Birds early in the process due to longstanding friendships with several Reel FX executives, who are fellow Texans. “With Free Birds being a buddy movie, we immediately thought that Owen and Woody would be the ideal pair to play Reggie and Jake.

When we pitched the original premise to them, they agreed to do it immediately,” recalls David Ross, President of Reel FX. Executive producer Aron Warner adds, “Woody and Owen are friends, and that friendship really comes through in the characters because they are very warm towards each other, even when they don’t mean to be.”

Poehler describes her character as “a pretty straightforward lady turkey who knows what she wants. She comes from a lineage of proud turkeys who have always supported and looked out for each other.”
