WHAT’S IT ABOUT?

Turkey Reggie (Wilson) is forced out of his comfort zone when idealistic turkey Jake (Harrelson) takes him on a daring mission back in time to the year 1621 in order to prevent turkeys from becoming a part of the traditional Thanksgiving meal…

IN ONE SENTENCE, WHY SHOULD YOU BE EXCITED?

Free Birds should provide some decent entertainment for children with its colourful visuals and warm-hearted humour, even if the plot is dumb even by kids’ film standards (honestly, turkeys travelling back in time?!).
