Great Scott! The first trailer for IT Chapter Two (one of the most anticipated horror movies of 2019) has been released. This film (which is based on Stephen King‘s It) is scheduled for release in September.
Twenty-seven years after the events of the summer of 1989, It returns. The Losers’ Club fulfill their promises and return to Derry to put an end to the evil being once and for all. Unbeknownst to them, It has returned, stronger and crueler than ever.
IT Chapter Two will feature performances by James McAvoy, Jaeden Martell, Jessica Chastain, Sophia Lillis, Jay Ryan, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Bill Hader, Finn Wolfhard, Isaiah Mustafa, Chosen Jacobs, James Ransone, Jack Dylan Grazer, Andy Bean, Wyatt Oleff, Teach Grant and Bill Skarsgård.
Only one pair of IT Chapter Two actors who portray the same character share the same hometown. The actors who portray Stanley Uris, Wyatt Oleff and Andy Bean, were both born and raised in Chicago, Illinois.
Although this movie is about the adults, the kids will be making appearances in some flashback scenes. Bill Skarsgård (Pennywise) has stated that he had more fun on set during this movie because he was actually able to talk to and hang out with his adult co-stars. He had minimal contact with his child co-stars in It Chapter One so that they would be more genuinely scared of Pennywise once they saw him.

Continuing with the extreme coincidence of the number 27, It: Chapter Two is set to be released on September 6, 2019 (9+6+2+0+1+9 = 27). The first chapter was released on September 8, 2017 (9+8+2+0+1+7 = 27).
There’s a 27 year age gap between Isaiah Mustafa (Mike Hanlon) and Chosen Jacobs (Young Mike) as well as Teach Grant (Henry Bowers) and Nicholas Hamilton (Young Henry). IT Chapter Two was filmed under the pseudonym “Largo.”
The film is directed by Andy Muschietti (who also directed Chapter 1). The screenplay for the film was written by John Dauberman (who co-wrote the screenplay for the first film).
