It feels like we’ve been waiting too long for an official look at It: Chapter Two, the upcoming sequel to the hugely-successful film adaptation of the classic Stephen King novel, which covered the childhood portion of the story. The good news is the wait is finally over with the debut of the first official teaser trailer for the film, which you can view above in preparation for your return trip to Derry to confront all of the horrors that await you there.
A real-life ad announcing the trailer debut in Times Square, New York City first tipped us off that a teaser was finally coming. In the days that followed, Stephen King confirmed the news himself, also mentioning that he's seen the film and thinks it's terrific. Other subtle social media teasers began to pop up as well, revealing red balloons hidden in photos of each of the cast members who play the adult versions of the characters. All of this brought us here today for the official teaser release, so go ahead and give it a watch and be sure to read on for more details on the film while you're here.
It: Chapter Two brings the Losers' Club into adulthood with James McAvoy as Bill, Jay Ryan as Ben, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Andy Bean as Stanley, and last but not least, James Ransone as Eddie. It was also previously announced that Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink would be playing the roles of Adrian Mellon and Tom Rogan respectively. Bill Skarsgård is, of course, reprising his role as Pennywise the Dancing Clown.
The film will hit theaters on September 6th, 2019. Andy Muschietti has returned to direct a script written by Gary Dauberman. Both films are based off the 1986 best-selling novel It by Stephen King, one of his most notable works.
