Following the release of Red Tails on DVD and Blu-ray Thn had the chance to speak to Paul Kavanagh, lead animator at Industrial Light & Magic. Sadly it was before the news of Disney’s purchase had gone through, but we still had a bloody good chat:

Thn: How was it working with George Lucas and Rick McCallum again on Red Tails after the Star Wars prequel trilogy?

Pk: It was really great! On Star Wars George and Rick would come to Ilm twice a week to look at the work, but on Red Tails we would go up to Skywalker ranch. George is very relaxed in his edit suite at the ranch house and the reviews were creative and fun.

Red Tails is a very emotive and powerful story. How was it to recreate 332nd Fighter Groups’ surroundings given the importance of the story?
