Press Junket Potluck: Free Birds' Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson & Amy Poehler talk turkey

Film Flam Flummox

Although an animated feature starring turkeys, the lead characters of Free Birds--smart, smart alecky Reggie; tough turkey freedom fighter Jake, who enlists Reggie to assist in his time-traveling mission to remove their kind from the Thanksgiving menu; Jenny, daughter of the chief of a turkey tribe in the year 1621--are not only lent voice by, respectively, Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, and Amy Poehler, but also their famously live wire comic personae. This was very much in evidence on Saturday, October 12, when the trio along with the film's director, Jimmy Hayward, took part in a press conference in Beverly Hills that was atypical in its quick-witted energy but all too befitting the celebratory holiday spirit. Relativity Media thankfully provided video of the complete press conference for those of us who attended the event, for text transcription would have failed to captured the personalities of and undeniable chemistry between this group as they offered insight into the production, their characters, and their personal views on holidays and--yes--time travel.

Free Birds opens today, Friday, November 1, in cinemas nationwide from Relativity Media.
