You know those “adopt-a-turkey” campaigns that appears just before the Thanksgiving holiday? Something tells me their going to get a big boost this year from kids.

Relativity Media is putting the final touches on its latest animated film “Free Birds,” starring Owen Wilson and Woody Harrelson as two time-traveling turkeys who go back to the Pilgrim era to try and change the course of history. The goal, naturally, is to get turkeys off the Thanksgiving menu forever.

Wilson plays Reggie – a turkey living the good life after a Presidential pardon – while Harrelson plays Jake – the only member of the Turkey Liberation Front. According to a sneak peek in USA TODAY, Jake convinces Reggie to travel back in time with him where they meet wild turkeys living underground in fear.

“I’ve been really studying for this part for a long time because I’ve been a vegan for 23 years,” Harrelson told the site. “I had an instinct a long time ago: Don’t eat turkeys. Eventually you’re going to play one.”

A trailer for “Free Birds” should hit online shortly. Who’s excited for a bit of turkey activism in theaters?

We don’t need heat-resistant animals, we need veganism.
