Warner Bros.' It, an updated version of the Stephen King novel of the same name, arrived on digital platforms today with a slew of deleted scenes. One of these deleted scenes features alternate ending that serves to bring the story full circle.
In the theatrical version of the film, the Losers make a blood oath to return to Derry, Maine in thirty years should Pennywise the Dancing Clown (Bill Skarsgard) return after his defeat. Once the other Losers depart, Beverly (Sophia Lillis) and Bill (Jaeden Lieberher) share a kiss before she leaves to live with her aunt in Portland.
The film's alternate ending sees Bill and his family leave for their family vacation. After they've packed and driven off, the camera pulls into the drain where his younger brother Georgie (Jackson Robert Scott) was taken at the beginning of the film. The camera then stops as rain begins to hit the pavement. This ending's inclusion would've been the closer to an arc about the Denborough family making plans for the yearly family trip, which was also cut from the theatrical version of the film.
The deleted scenes feature an alternate (gag) opening and scenes like "Bill's Dad looks in the basement," "Evacuating the Neibolt house," "The Losers find Georgie's walkie" and more. The extras also include a behind-the-scenes featurette about Pennywise, a featurette about the Losers' Club and an extended interview with King. To see full descriptions of these extras, check out this post or purchase the film on a digital platform.
Directed by Andy Muschetti, It stars Jaeden Lieberher, Finn Wolfhard, Sophia Lillis, Chosen Jacobs, Jack Dylan Grazer, Jeremy Ray Taylor, Wyatt Oleff, Nicholas Hamilton, Jackson Robert Scott, and Bill Skarsgard. The film is available on digital marketplaces now and release on Blu-ray and DVD on January 9.
