First trailer for It Chapter Two finds a grown up cast haunted by Pennywise

Here comes the return of Pennywise

Petrana Radulovic is an entertainment reporter specializing in animation, fandom culture, theme parks, Disney, and young adult fantasy franchises.

The first trailer for It Chapter Two is appropriately terrifying.

It Chapter Two is the follow up to 2017’s It, and is also based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. The first movie followed the first section of the book, focusing on the main characters as children, a ragtag gang known as The Losers’ Club.

The Losers’ Club returns in Chapter Two — but this time they’re all grown up. The sequel sports a stellar (and very on-point) cast, with James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverley, Jay Ryan as Ben, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stan. Bill Skarsgård returns as Pennywise the Clown. The trailer fins Beverley returning to Derry, Maine and stumbling upon Pennywise’s origins. Also, a naked old lady.

The new movie takes place 27 years after the events of the first chapter, which took place in 1989. The original novel took place in 1957 and 1985, while the miniseries took place in 1960 and 1990.

It Chapter Two hits theaters on Sept. 6, 2019.
