"You must follow me blindly!" Relativity has released the first trailer for their upcoming animated movie Free Birds from Jimmy Hayward (director of Horton Hears a Who!) and featuring the voices of Owen Wilson, Woody Harrelson, Amy Poehler, Dan Fogler, George Takei, Colm Meaney, Keith David and Dwight Howard... Yes, the busted Los Angeles Lakers star.

The film centers on two turkeys (Wilson and Harrelson) who travel back in time to the first Thanksgiving in hopes of taking turkeys off the menu.

The film hits theaters on November 1 and will be competing for a slot in the lackluster list of Oscar-potential animated films this year. Think it stands a chance?

    I cracked a smile a few times, but that looks like pretty bad animation.

  • Joe Maumah

    The animation is fine, some of you people have a weird stick up your backsides. This looks like it could be pretty fun if the story does justice to the weirdo concept.

    After they fail to get turkeys off of the menu, that leads to the inevitable sequel:
