The first teaser trailer for It: Chapter Two features Jessica Chastain, playing an adult Beverly, visiting her childhood home. She’s returned to Derry and welcomed into her old house by a seemingly friendly elderly lady. Given that this is Derry, Beverly should have expected her attempt to reconnect with old memories would lead down a dark path. It’s not long into her visit that she discovers the terrifying truth: Pennywise the Clown has returned.
The young cast from It – Jaeden Martell 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 – reprise their roles for the second chapter of It. The adult cast taking on the characters introduced in the original film but 27 years older are James McAvoy (Split, the X-Men films) as Bill, Oscar nominee Jessica Chastain (Zero Dark Thirty, Mama) as Beverly, Bill Hader (HBO’s Barry, The Skeleton Twins) as Richie, Isaiah Mustafa (Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments) as Mike, Jay Ryan (Mary Kills People) as Ben, James Ransone (The Wire) as Eddie, and Andy Bean (Allegiant, Power) as Stanley.
It director Andy Muschietti returned to helm the sequel to the 2017 blockbuster which holds the box office record as the highest grossing horror film. Gary Dauberman (It, Annabelle: Creation) adapted Stephen King’s bestselling novel and Barbara Muschietti, Dan Lin and Roy Lee served as producers. Marty Ewing, Seth Grahame-Smith and David Katzenberg executive produced.
Muschiette’s behind the scenes team includes director of photography Checco Varese (The 33), Oscar-winning production designer Paul D. Austerberry (The Shape of Water), editor Jason Ballantine (IT, Mad Max: Fury Road), and Oscar-nominated costume designer Luis Sequeira (The Shape of Water, Mama).
