Seven Minutes of LucasFilm’s ‘Red Tails’

Posted filed under Film, USA, Videos.

“According to executive producer George Lucas, Red Tails is “as close as you’ll ever get to [Star Wars] Episode VII.” So it seems appropriate that seven minutes of the film have made their way online for your viewing pleasure.

The action epic, over two-decades in the making, is directed by Anthony Hemingway and sports a super-impressive cast such as Cuba Gooding, Jr., Terrence Howard, Bryan Cranston, David Oyelowo, Tristan Wilds, Method Man, Andre Royo, Ne-Yo and Michael B. Jordan, just to name a few. It tells the inspirational story of the Tuskeegee Airman and is the first non-Star Wars or Indiana Jones film LucasFilm has released in almost two decades.

And here’s Lucas on The Daily Show. It’s a really good interview in which he talks about Hollywood’s aversion to “black” movies, potential sequels and prequels and, of course, lots of Star Wars references.”
