The movie "IT" became one of the highest grossing horror films of all time and is one of 2017’s most successful films. Originally planned to be a two-part film, the sequel is scheduled for release on September 6, 2019, according to Deadline. The sequel will focus on the same characters 30 years later.

“It” was directed by Andy Muschietti and produced by Barabara Musschietti, and is based on Stephens King’s 1986 novel of the same name.

Set in 1980s Derby, Maine, the story follows a group of children who are terrorized by an eponymous being they call ‘It.' The children must face their fears and demons in order to defeat ‘It.'

The film received critical acclaim and fans were thankful for the faithful adaptation of the film. The film’s director and producer are compiling Deleted Scenes from the film for a Director’s Cut for the DVD and Blu-ray release of “It”.

Controversial scene

One of the iconic scenes from “It”, both film and novel, is the Georgie and the sewer scene. One other scene was erased from the film because it was highly controversial – the orgy scene.

In the novel, the Losers” club got lost in the sewer system after they defeated Pennywise (for the moment). To be united again, Beverly (the only female in the group) decided she needed to have sex with the six boys.

The plan worked and they were able to escape.

In the film, when Pennywise was defeated, the group simply reappeared outside the sewers - with no indication they got lost.

Origin story

It is known that Pennywise the Dancing Clown resurfaces every 27 years to feed and that "It" can take on different forms depending on the child’s worst fears. Bill Skarsgard (who played the titular character) told Variety’s “Playback” podcast that they shot a scene that didn’t make the final cut.

The actor explained that it was a flashback scene from the 1600s, a time before Pennywise was Pennywise. It was a backstory about where Pennywise came from and what ‘It’ is. Details of the flashback scene have been posted on Reddit and it revealed a scene where Pennywise eats a baby.

The scene involved a woman giving her baby to Pennywise to be eaten in order to save herself and the rest of her family.

Skarsgard said that the scene turned out really disturbing, especially since he wasn’t wearing the clown costume and he looked like himself.

It is the same scene that Timothy Simons revealed in his interview with “Throwing Shade” podcast. He explained that when he auditioned for the role, he read a script for that scene and found it scary. Despite the scene not making the final cut of the film, there is still a chance for it to be included the upcoming sequel.
