The first footage from It: Chapter Two was shown at Comic-Con on Wednesday, a behind-the-scenes glimpse which provided fans with their fist look at the adult versions of the Losers’ Club.
The second part of the blockbuster film adaptation of the Stephen King classic only started shooting a few weeks ago in Toronto so it was too early in the sequel’s production to show too much of what they’re working on.
A behind-the-scenes featurette anchored by director Andy Muschietti revealed James McAvoy as Bill, Jessica Chastain as Beverly, Bill Hader as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike, Jay Ryan as Ben, James Ransone as Eddie, and Andy Bean as Stanley.
There were on-set virgnettes of the actors filming various shots, as well as glimpses of Bill Skarsgård back as the monstrous demon clown Pennywise.
While there was nothing truly revealing or scary shown — and almost all of the footage was of the filming of scenes rather than the scenes themselves — the footage did show the adult Losers’ Club reuniting at a restaurant years after the events of Chapter One. Hader’s Richie asks the group, knowingly, what they’d like to talk about …
There was also some footage from the first It featuring the younger members of the Losers Club: Jaeden Lieberher as Bill, Wyatt Oleff as Stanley, Sophia Lillis as Beverly, Finn Wolfhard as Richie, Jeremy Ray Taylor as Ben, Chosen Jacobs as Mike, and Jack Dylan Grazer as Eddie.
The It: Chapter Two presentation was part of New Line Cinema’s “ScareDiego” panel touting their upcoming horror slate, which included The Nun and The Curse of La Llorona.
It: Chapter Two scares its way into theaters September 6, 2019.
