George Lucas is coming out with another film! Before you start to re-watch the "Star Wars" franchise and brush up on your Jedi knowledge, it's not another "Star Wars" movie. But it is a film of epic proportions.
Lucas serves as executive producer for "Red Tails," an action movie revolving around the Tuskegee Airmen, a group of African American pilots who fought during World War II.
In a recent interview on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart" Lucas said that the film is unique because there aren't any white protagonists, and that it's "one of the first all-black action pictures ever made." The film stars Cuba Gooding Jr., Terrence Howard, Ne-Yo, Nate Parker, Michael B. Jordan and David Oyelowo, and will come to theaters on January 20.
