It Chapter Two (2019) Poster

Trivia

Jump to: Cameo (3)  | Director Cameo (1)  | Spoilers (29)
Bill Skarsgård (Pennywise) has stated that he had more fun on set during this movie because he was actually able to talk to and hang out with his adult co-stars. Skarsgård had minimal contact with his child co-stars in Chapter One so that they would be more genuinely scared of Pennywise once they saw him.
Bill Hader was unaware that Bill Skarsgård can actually move his eyes in two different directions. Hader asked Skarsgård what kind of editing was done to achieve the effect in the first movie. Skarsgård, in full costume and makeup, responded by saying "Oh, you mean this?" and doing it, causing Hader to freak out.
The young actors who were the Losers Club in chapter one grew tremendously in the 2 years following filming. They had to be digitally 'de-aged' in some scenes as they looked significantly older than before.

Bill Hader was approached for the role of Richie Tozier based on Finn Wolfhard's wish to cast him in the sequel. Hader, who had never met Wolfhard, was extremely flattered that Wolfhard wanted him to take on the role.
When adult Richie enters the abandoned theater, there is a shot where an old delapidated You've Got Mail poster is behind him. If you look closely, the torn parts of the poster spell out "IT".

The members of the Loser's Club from It (2017) were asked who they wanted to play their adult parts: Finn Wolfhard (Richie Tozier) said Bill Hader, Sophia Lillis (Beverly Marsh) said Jessica Chastain, Chosen Jacobs (Mike Hanlon) said Chadwick Boseman, Jack Dylan Grazer (Eddie Kaspbrak) said Jake Gyllenhaal, Wyatt Oleff (Stanley Uris) said Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Jeremy Ray Taylor (Ben Hanscom) said Chris Pratt and Jaeden Martell (Bill Denbrough) said Christian Bale. Wolfhard and Lillis's choices were the only two that ended up being cast.
Bill Skarsgård stated in an interview that even after filming had wrapped, he would have nightmares of Pennywise. In these nightmares he would have to battle Pennywise just as the characters in the film do.

One of Richie Tozier's character traits is his ability to do "voices" and impressions. Bill Hader is a well-known impressionist, famous for the celebrity impressions he did for years on "Saturday Night Live." With this in mind, screenwriter Gary Dauberman wrote a scene in which Richie does an impression of Al Pacino, a voice that Hader is quite good at. However, Hader requested that the impression be removed from the script because the Pacino impression was old material and he didn't feel like doing it again.

The role of Richie Tozier was written with Bill Hader in mind, but it still allowed freedom for another actor to potentially take on the role. Once Hader officially joined the cast, the script was edited to tailor the role specifically for his talents.

On the side of Mike's Native American artifact is a symbol of a circle with one large point and several smaller points. This represents the Dark Tower. Stephen King's Dark Tower series of novels connects a number of his works including It, The Shining, The Stand, Salem's Lot, Insomnia, and numerous others. The sixth book, Song of Susannah, implies that It is one of the six greater demon elementals. It's rival, the turtle Maturin, is one of the guardians of the tower's beams while It's mission is to destroy the beam.

A recurring criticism about Stephen King's novels is his lack of inspiration for endings, even in otherwise well-acclaimed novels. This is repeatedly addressed in the movie, where Bill receives the same comments about his books (even from King in person).

Eddie's death in the book was a bit more gruesome than in the film. In the book, It bites Eddie's arm off and tosses him aside. Eddie then dies of shock from pain and blood loss. In the film, when the Losers are standing around the very weakened Pennywise, Richie approaches and rips one of It's arms off.

Towards the end, Pennywise takes the form of the deceased Stanley Uris's head. The head soon grows insect-like legs and begins to crawl after them. This is an obvious homage to John Carpenter's The Thing (1982), especially apparent in the way that the creature is back-lit by their flashlights; upon seeing the spider-head creature, Richie even makes the same exclamation as the Palmer character does in The Thing. Carpenter previously directed the Stephen King adaptation Christine (1983).

The climax of the book and movie are much different: in the book, Mike is severely wounded after his encounter with Henry Bowers and unable to join the remaining Losers in the sewers for the final battle against Pennywise. Stanley Uris also dies without leaving a suicide note or sending a letter to the rest of the group. Also, unlike in the movie, the Losers do begin to forget their memories again after parting ways
