“I was making the movie when Trayvon [Martin] was [killed]”said Peele The New York Times in 2017. âWhat started out as a movie to fight the lie that America has gone post-racial has turned into a cat-no-bag movie, and now we’re having this conversation. I realized I had to change it up a bit. It was less a question of trying to create awakening than of trying to offer us a hero out of this turmoil, to offer escape and joy.
