An action-packed adventure…

Red Tails is the story of the famed Tuskegee Airmen, inspired by true events from the Second World War. Executive produced by George Lucas and directed by Anthony Hemingway, the film depicts the heroic exploits of the elite African-American fighter pilots who proved their worth in the skies over Europe. With innovative use of digital technology, aerial dogfights are recreated like never before with a cast of noted actors including Cuba Gooding Jr. and Terrence Howard.


Subjected to intense racism at home, the African-American pilots known as the Tuskegee Airmen are given a rare opportunity to prove their bravery in the fight over Europe. Flying the latest aircraft with distinctive tails painted red, the fighter squadron must overcome adversity in its many forms.

We have a right to fight for our country. The same as every other American.
