After what seems like an eternity of waiting, fans of Stephen King’s IT will finally (finally!) be able to see Andy Muschietti’s adaptation when the film arrives in US & UK Theaters this Friday! While Pennywise is already iconic for his appearance in the 1990’s miniseries (played to perfection by Tim Curry), there’s much about the demonic “Dancing Clown” that’s never explained in Tommy Lee Wallace’s adaptation. This complex mythology probably won’t be explained in Muschietti’s IT either (at least not in full).
Our friends at Hybrid Network have put together an amazing Pennywise Origin Video that may or may not enhance or detract from your appreciation of the impending film. Basically, proceed at your own risk! If you’d like to know about the larger universe that Pennywise inhabits, and you aren’t worried about potential spoilers, give it a whirl and let us know what you think in the Comments section.
