The film stars Terrance Howard, David Oyelowo, Cuba Gooding Jr., Nate Parker, Marcus T. Paulk, Andrew Royo, Neyo, Tristan Wilds, Kevin Phillips, Michael B Jordan, and a slew of other black actors.

George Lucas, the executive producer of “Red Tails,” said in a statement: “I’ve wanted to do this film for a great many years. So it is especially gratifying to see it all come together.” He added: “The Tuskegee Airmen were such superb pilots that it was essential for us to create visual effects that would live up to their heroism and put audiences in the cockpit with them. They were only in their early 20s when they performed these amazing feats. They became the best of the best — the top guns.”
