By matters of box office results and popular impact, it is quite fair to say It (2017) is the biggest horror film of this decade. Everything was so favorable with the movie that shortly after it was out the producers and filmmakers confirmed that a sequel was already in the works. Not to surprise anyone, I must say. So if It (2017) was circling around a bunch of kids called The Losers’ Club facing a demonic spirit in the shape of a creepy clown called Pennywise, in the sequel the menace is to be dealt with by the adult versions of those kids.
As it happened with the original film, It Chapter Two (2019) is based on the characters created by Stephen King and has been written by Gary Dauberman, popular for having penned other recent hit supernatural films of The Conjuring universe like Annabelle (2014), Annabelle: Creation (2017), the upcoming sequel Annabelle Comes Home (2019), and The Nun (2018), as well as other horror titles like Within (2016) and Wolves at the Door (2016). Andy Muschietti repeats as the director with his sister Barbara Muschietti as the producer.
In It Chapter Two (2019), twenty-seven years later, The Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back. Because we should not forget it, history says every 27 years the evil form revisits the town of Derry, Maine. And, of course, will do whatever is on his hands to finish the undone job.
It stars Bill Skarsgård reprising the role of Pennywise, a character he mastered in the first movie, and also Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, and Andy Bean, portraying the adult versions of The Losers Club, with Sophia Lillis, Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Chosen Jacobs, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Jack Dylan Grazer, and Wyatt Oleff returning as the kids.
The filming of It Chapter Two (2019) began on June 19, 2018, at Pinewood Toronto Studios and on other locations around Ontario, and wrapped on October 30, 2018. It is scheduled to open worldwide the first week of September. The movie is now in its process of post-production, and the first trailer was published recently. You can watch it here:
