Andy Muschietti, the director of It Chapter Two, has discussed what has been different about making the sequel, compared to the first movie.
Horror fans around the world are starting to get pretty excited for It: Chapter Two, the follow up to the enormously successful adaptation of Stephen King’s It.
With the jump in time in the film’s narrative, there are certainly differences in front of the camera but what has changed when it comes to making this particular movie? Well, director Andy Muschietti has said the following to EW:
“In general, I feel more comfortable. I have more toys. On the first one, I was struggling to get a Technocrane [a massive telescopic crane for a camera] on certain days. But now the Technocrane is always there!”
What can fans expect from the sequel? The director teases: “I think that everything that people love from the first one, like the humor and the emotions and the horror, will all be there and cranked up, in some cases.”
Fingers crossed the sequel can recapture the magic and horror of the first installment. Luckily, it’s not long now until we find out, thanks to its 6th September release date.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters—who’ve long since gone their separate ways—back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.
It Chapter Two will see Bill Skarsgard reprising his role as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, while Jessica Chastain (Beverly), James McAvoy (Bill), Bill Hader (Richie), James Ransone (Eddie), Andy Bean (Stanley), Jay Ryan (Ben) and Isaiah Mustafa (Mike) star as the adult versions of The Losers’ Club. Young It stars Jaeden Martell, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Sophia Lillis, Finn Wolfhard, Wyatt Oleff, Jack Dylan Grazer and Chosen Jacobs are also set to reprise their roles from the first movie in flashback sequences.
