why was the Blue squadron in the ANH novelization changed to Red squadron in the movie?
A little late, but... *runs in gasping* I... know... the answer! It's because they were working with blue screen techniques... the blue paint on the squadrons confused the CGI stuff, so they went with red instead...
There. I just had to post the answer since it was figured out.

Unless they have a magic boat. If they have a magic boat, I'm pretty much doomed.... *cough*

That's Maud'dib... I think... anyway, just a side note about the whole Blue Squadron thing, they also had to use black on Artoo so his blue markings wouldn't disappear with the blue screen. So, if it looked like Artoo was black instead of blue for the Battle of Yavin, he was... But nowadays, with all their new technology, they don't have to, so Artoo is back to being blue throughout the entire movie...
