Candyman is an upcoming supernatural American movie directed by Nia DaCosta and written by Jordan Peele, Win Rosenfield, and DaCosta. It is a sequel of 1992’s cult classic movie of the same name and fourth movie in the franchise of Candyman. The movie has postponed the production and premiere because of the pandemic outbreak of Covid-19, but director DaCosta is not in any way letting the legend Candyman be forgotten.

DaCosta took to Twitter to share a puppeteer video which is absolutely heartbreaking and lays the message of racial horrors underneath the Candyman myths and daily lives of humans.
She wrote, ‘CANDYMAN, at the intersection of white violence, and black pains are about unwilling martyrs. The people they were, the symbols we turned them into, the monster we told they must have been.’

The movie is more or less is like the 92’s movie, the writer-director Bernard Rose set the location to Chicago from the UK and added a new twist of Candyman being an African-American, a painter and artist with a hook in his hand done by the lynch mob, and he is also in love with a white woman from a wealthy family. Candyman was turned into a monster because of racial injustice and brutality which took his life, and unjustified bigotry filled him with rage. Watch the trailer here!

The puppet video is an apt analysis of the plot of the movie. In the video, we see there is a clear line drawn between the original story of Candyman and daily racial discrimination and violence of Black bodies in the US.

 

 

The video clearly depicts the picture of what’s happening right now in the world. The movie, Candyman is all set to mirror the realities of 2020, which is all set to release on 25 September.
