The second part of New Line/Warner Bros’ Stephen King adaptation It Chapter Two is set to hit theaters on September 6, and the studio has been building up excitement since debuting the first trailer.
The return of Bill Skarsgard’s Pennywise the Clown has played a major part in Warner Bros’ Comic-Con activities with an installment dubbed “Scare Diego” that premiered a second trailer as well as some new footage from the movie directed by Andy Muschietti.
If you haven’t read King’s novel or seen the original 1990 mini-series starring Tim Curry as Pennywise, the second part of the horror adaptation takes place twenty-seven years after the events of It. The “Losers Club” are all grown up and Beverly (now played by Jessica Chastain) returns to Derry, Maine just as Pennywise is ready to make his dastardly return.
The new cast includes James McAvoy, Bill Hader, James Ransome, Jay Ryan and Isaiah Mustafa as the grown-up “Losers,” and of course, the younger actors — Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard (Stranger Things), Jack Dylan Glazer (Shazam!), Jaeden Martell, Chosen Jacobs and Owen Teague are all back, probably in flashbacks. This enormous ensemble is also joined by Xavier Dolan and Jess Weixler.
You can watch the second trailer below and let us know in the comments if you’re as excited to see the end of this story as we are.
As an added bonus, Muschietti and some of the It Chapter two cast in attendance at “Scare Diego” did a bit of a singalong of the ’50s song “Tonight You Belong to Me” that was captured by an attendee from Fandango:
