5 Guesses About the Much Anticipated ‘It’ Sequel

Published

on

Fans of It won’t have to wait long for a sequel. Omega Underground reports that the second chapter of the Stephen King adaptation is set to begin filming this June in Toronto. Stage work will happen at the Pinewood Toronto Studios, while it looks like Port Hope will once again play the role of Derry.

We couldn’t be more excited for Pennywise and the Losers club, so we put together a list. Here are our five guesses about what we can expect from the sequel.

Less Comedy, More Horror

New Line

Despite a killer clown, abusive parents, and a knife-happy teenager, It had plenty of laughs. Some have gone as far as categorizing it as a horror-comedy. But when the adult versions of the Losers club reunite in Derry 27 years after defeating Pennywise, we don’t think they’ll be cracking as many jokes. Time will have worn away at the Losers’ innocence. Adults carry different fears than children, which provides Pennywise with new opportunities. In It:2, we’ll see how much the Losers Club was affected by the clown when they were kids, especially Mike.

More For Mike

New Line

Mike didn’t play a huge role in the first film. He and Stan received the least development, but we think that’ll change with the second film. In the book, adult Mike is a library-rat, obsessed with unearthing the origins of Pennywise. Director Andy Muschietti has already expressed interest in pursuing this angle. But we think Mike will have more than a killer clown to contend with.

Henry Bowers’ Death

New Line

Henry Bowers took a pretty rough fall into the Sewer at the end of It, convincing many fans the character met his end. However, in the book, Bowers plays a pivotal role in the adult lives of the Losers Club. Bowers is guided by Pennywise to seek vengeance on the losers club–specifically Mike. Whether Mike uncovers the truth behind Pennywise or not before Bowers confronts him is up in the air. Regardless, we will find out about Pennywise’s origin.

What Is ‘It’?

One huge question that we still have after walking out of the first movie is “What is It?”. Right now, the answer to that question is vague. We know that it’s an evil creature that feeds off of fear, but that’s about it. We think the losers will discover more about It’s origin and use that information to defeat It once and for all. Unfortunately, we don’t think one of the losers will make it that far.

One Loser’s Fate

New Line

(Minor Spoilers From Book)

In the book, one of the losers never makes it back to the Losers Club reunion. After hearing of Pennywise’s return, Stan slits his wrists and uses his blood to write “It” on the bathroom wall. Stan was the least-developed character in the first film, so we aren’t sure if the movie is going to give the tragic death to him or a character we’re more connected to. Either way, we’re sure one of the losers won’t make it out of the sequel.
