IT Chapter Two, the sequel to 2017’s IT Chapter One, hits theaters next month and is the conclusion of the big-screen horror adaptation of the best-selling Stephen King novel It. Chapter One introduced audiences to “The Losers Club,” a group of young friends in Derry, Maine, who come up against the evil clown-faced Pennywise. Chapter Two picks up 27 years later and sees the return of the Losers as adults to their New England hometown to once against face their deadly foe.
Warner Bros. has released a 3-minute featurette for Chapter Two called “Coming Home,” where author Stephen King, directorAndy Muschietti, and the adult cast members talk about the upcoming sequel and what it means for the friends to come home under these terrible circumstances. Watch the featurette here below.
IT Chapter One is currently available on Blu-ray, DVD, 4K Ultra HD, and Digital, but will be making a 2-night return to select theaters on August 3 and August 6, with these limited screenings to include 8 minutes of new footage from the upcoming sequel.
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club—young and adult—in a return to where it all began with “It Chapter Two.”
The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, “IT” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
Directed by Andy Muschietti and starring James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, Jaeden Martell, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, and Bill Skarsgård, IT Chapter Two comes to standard and IMAX theaters on September 6, 2019.
