"IT" fans are thrilled with the newly released full trailer for the Stephen King adaptation which is due out in theaters everywhere on September 8. The first full trailer of "IT" has fans chomping at the bit and wanting more. For those not familiar with Stephen King, or his books, here is a little background on "IT."

Pennywise the Clown promises major scares

The 2017 film is an Andres Muschietti adaptation of King's 1986 novel. Actor Bill Skarsgard stars as Pennywise the evil clown. The plot of the horror film follows a group of outcast pre-teen children who have banded together, forming a club called "The Loser's Club." The story follows the group from the year 1958 through adulthood.

Jaeden Lieberher stars as Bill Denbrough, the leader of the "Loser's Club."

'IT' hits theaters on September 8th

The "IT" trailer starts off revealing Pennywise The Clown luring a young boy -- Bill's little brother Georgie -- into a storm drain. Following Georgie's death, the kid's team up to fight the curse of their hometown in Derry, Maine. The town has suffered from great loss throughout the decades, and after doing research on the town, the gang learns that there is one common factor in all of the tragedy that has taken place throughout the years.

The first film of the two-part saga reveals the younger version of the kids attempting to battle Pennywise. They believe all is good until 1985 when bad things once again begin happening for the members of the "Loser's Club" -- only now they are all adults.

This will be the second part of the story which is reserved for the sequel.

Longtime Stephen King fans are well aware that this is the second adaptation of the novel. The first was a 1990 made-for-television- mini-series that starred Tim Curry as Pennywise. For those who have not read the Stephen King novel, it's 1,138 pages long, so it's a good idea to get started on it now, before the film arrives in early September.

If you would like a chance to see the original Film Adaptation mini-series, this can be done currently by renting the movie on Amazon or picking up a copy of the DVD. One thing that all Stephen King fans are well aware of is that the book is a frightening read. You can also expect the 2017 version to be increasingly more terrifying and graphic than the made for TV mini-series.

Check out the new trailer, and don't forget to mark your calendar for the September 8th theater release of the film.
