If you’re a big fan of horror books and films, you’re probably already a fan of Stephen King. This American author, famous for his horror and supernatural novels, is renowned as one of the best modern-classic novelists of his time.
One of the author’s best works is IT, a story which follows a group of kids being haunted by the same monster, Pennywise The Dancing Clown, in the small town of Derry, Maine.
The book-turned-movie was a big hit in 2017, that the fans begged for more; hence, IT CHAPTER TWO.
Pennywise is back in Derry 27 years after members of The Losers’ Club–Bill Denbrough, Richie Tozier, Eddie Kaspbrak, and Stan Uris–defeated him.
Now adults, they are once more haunted by Pennywise as kids around Derry are disappearing one by one.
Here’s What To Expect
According to Collider.com, IT Chapter Two will focus on the origin of Pennywise. Director Andrés Muschietti said in an interview that there will be flashbacks of Pennywise’s first encounter with the humans.
“A flashback, that sort of portrays the first encounter of It and humans, which is an amazing scene,” Muschietti said.
In an interview with Metro UK, Bill Skarsgård, who plays Pennywise, said that there will be scenes that would further expose the clown’s character.
“It’s a different story, but I’m excited to delve in deeper to the character as there’s more exploration for who Pennywise is … to delve into the psychological and metaphysical spaces of this transdimensional being,” he said.
Readers were first introduced to the clown Pennywise when King released his book IT in 1986. The first actor to play the evil clown was Tim Curry in 1990.
