We’re closing in on the release date of ‘It: Chapter Two’ and the cast and crew have started to weigh in on how the story will be different this time around. As we know, Pennywise emerges from the shadows every 27-years to feast upon the innocent in Derry, Maine, but in the second chapter of this story, things are going to be different. As Skarsgard shared about Pennywise, “The arc of the first movie is that he, for the first time, experiences fear himself. His last line — ‘Fear…’ — is him experiencing it for the first time, and he’s sort of shocked and perplexed and surprised. Like, what is this?”

As to how Pennywise will be different, “He’s been doing this forever really, so he doesn’t change in the sense that you would look differently. He looks however he wants to look for any particular prey at the time, but I do think there’s a change.” The changes are partially because “He’s scarier and he’s angrier. There’s a couple of very brutal things in the film.”
Pennywise is quite clearly not used to change, so having both lost and experienced what he feeds on in others will really throw the creature for a curve. Screenwriter Gary Dauberman let us know that the movie is “definitely bloodier than the first and it is just as scary, if not scarier. The two movies feel like a complete whole. This feels like a natural progression and extension of the first.”
While I can’t wait to watch the second act when it is released, after that comment, the idea of seeing them back to back just sounds like fun.
