IT Chapter Two clocked in at a whopping two
hours 50 minutes. However, the initial cut was around four hours
long, meaning there are a ton of fascinating deleted scenes fans never got to see. Yippee-ki-yay, movie lovers, I’m Jan and in
this video I’m revealing all the deleted scenes from Chapter Two and explaining the six-hour
director’s supercut that we can look forward to. My Pennywise Funko Pop giveaway is still running,
so make sure you subscribe and keep watching for more details on that. And, of course, spoilers ahead! The trailers hint at an intriguing deleted
scene where Mike is taunted by Pennywise when he visits the burned-out building where his
parents died. And the “World of IT” book reveals a lot more
details about the cut scene. At the time, the town of Derry thought that
Mike’s father had set fire to the building on purpose because he’d lost his mind. You can see a hint of this in the actual movie
when Mike’s in the library looking at a newspaper headline that claims his parents were crackheads. In the deleted scene, when Mike returns to
the building, he encounters Pennywise who shows him the burnt corpse of a little girl
who also died in the fire. And the evil clown tries to make Mike feel
even guiltier by claiming his parents were to blame for the girl’s death. If they had included this deleted scene in
the final film, the truth about Mike’s parents would have been discovered after the Losers
killed IT for good. This would have happened in the closing scene
of Mike at the library where he would have noticed that the newspaper headline now read
“2 Locals Die Saving Neighbor’s Daughter From Electrical Blaze”. So, with the evil curse of IT lifted from
Derry, the truth that Mike’s parents were actually heroes who died saving a young girl’s
life would have been revealed. It would have been great to see this cut scene
because all the other Losers visited a place from their childhood and had an encounter
with Pennywise during the movie. But this barely happened for Mike other than
that tiny flashback after which he was attacked by adult Henry Bowers. There’s an extended scene of Beverly’s encounter
with Mrs Kersh at her old house. The scene was already pretty creepy in the
movie, but it was cut down for time as in the trailers some of the moments play out
a bit longer. “There you go. Now some music.” That clip wasn’t in the final film and the
scene instead cuts from Bev looking at the postcard to the music already playing. This trailer shot of flies buzzing around
the window as we hear the music adds to the scene’s creep factor, but was also scrapped
from the final film. There’s also concept art in the “World of
IT” book of an unused scene of Mrs Kersh transforming from the tea-making old lady into the enormous,
grotesque witch that attacks Beverly. The art looks pretty amazing and would have
been cool to see in the film, but the filmmakers’ decision not to show the transformation does
make the giant witch’s sudden appearance more of a disturbing shock. There’s another deleted moment with Bev after
she runs out of the building and into the street which would have shown her being taunted
by a bright red balloon with the words “Sweet dreams, Bevvie.” There’s a similar scene in the book and 90s
TV miniseries where after rushing out of her old house, Bev is almost hit by a truck and
then is freaked out when a yellow balloon appears out of nowhere. Beverly also had an extended scene with the
Mrs Kersh water monster that she encounters when the Losers enter the Cistern just before
they go into Pennywise’s lair. The monster drags Bev underwater and the other
Losers dive in to help her out; however, there’s deleted footage of the battle underwater with
the monster in the trailers. Jessica Chastain apparently injured herself
performing the stunt for this scene, so hopefully the entire scene of the Losers vs the monster
will appear on the Blu-ray or in the Supercut. Chapter Two introduces a pretty trippy origin
scene for IT, with Mike giving Bill a drug that lets him see a vision of how IT arrived
on Earth and slaughtered everything it encountered. However, there was another scene of backstory
filmed for Pennywise that screened briefly for test audiences in Chapter One and which
many expected to appear in Chapter Two. The scene was set in 1637 in a building called
the Wellhouse which later becomes the house on Neibolt Street. In the deleted scene, Pennywise terrorises
a mother and her child by shapeshifting into various forms in front of her and then threatening
to eat her, her baby and all of her other children. Pennywise then makes a bargain with her that
if she leaves her baby for IT to eat, it will leave her alone. Driven mad with fear, the mother gives up
the baby, then becomes hypnotised by the Deadlights so from then on she’s immune to the horror
of Pennywise eating her baby and also his future atrocities. The deleted scene was alluded to in the first
movie via the painting in the town library of a woman carrying her baby to a well. A picture of Bill Skarsgard in an earlier
human form circulated after Chapter One, however, it looks like the filmmakers decided against
using that human form of Pennywise in Chapter Two and instead had him putting on the clown’s
white make-up and tearing bloody red marks into his face during the Mrs Kersh sequence. Although Chapter Two brought the adaptation
of King’s novel to a definitive close, there has been serious talk of a possible third
IT film which would delve much deeper into Pennywise’s origins and time in Derry before
the Losers, so it’s possible the deleted Wellhouse scene could be revisited if that third movie
gets made. Also revealed in the “World of IT” book is
an alternate version of the flashback scene where Ben is taunted by Pennywise masquerading
as Bev. In the final film, this happened back at school,
but originally it was going to take place at the quarry and, linked to this, there’s
some deleted footage of adult Ben walking around the quarry by himself which also never
made it into the actual movie. The book reveals that stunt double Sierra
Jones took the place of Sophia Lillis and wore burn make-up for the flaming head scenes. And it also tells us that in the alternate
quarry-set version of that scene after Bev set her hair on fire, Pennywise’s hand would
have burst out of her chest holding Bev’s beating heart. This does sound intriguing, however, the school
setting in the final film is likely more atmospheric and darker as it’s set indoors and the locker
part of the scene also plays on Ben’s claustrophobia, which was highlighted at the start and end
of the movie. The school setting is also a better fit for
Ben discovering his token for the Ritual of Chud, which is the page Bev signed in his
yearbook. Fans of the book may have been somewhat disappointed
at the lack of explicit references to the cosmic turtle from King’s original novel. However, there was a deleted scene in Chapter
Two involving the turtle at the quarry. In a call-back to Chapter One when they were
kids, the surviving five Losers jump into the lake, and there’s an extended version
of this scene where the adult Losers swim underwater and encounter the turtle that Bill
saw as a kid. “What was that?” “Something just touched my foot right here.” “Right here.” “It’s a turtle.” Director Andy Muschietti has promised that
we’ll learn more about the turtle in the extended version of Chapter Two. For those who haven’t read King’s original
novel, the turtle is a friendly cosmic entity that created the universe after vomiting it
up when it had a tummy ache. Its name is Maturin and as a being of creation,
the turtle is presented as an entity opposed to IT who calls itself “The Eater of Worlds”. There are several other Maturin turtle easter
eggs in Chapter Two which I discuss in more detail in my ending explained video. There’s a link to that in the video description
and also at the end of this video. As well as the scene I mentioned earlier,
Mike had another deleted scene with Pennywise in which the two of them confronted each other
about their plans. Muschietti described the scene on the press
tour as introducing the idea of belief as a weapon. The cut sequence played out like a “chess
game” with Mike saying “We’re going to get you. Now they believe.” And Pennywise contradicting him
“They believe in me.” This would have been an interesting moment,
but I can see why it was deleted as the idea of using belief to defeat Pennywise was touched
upon in particular at the end when Bev gives Eddie the spike he uses against the Pennywise-spider
monster. “Take it, it kills monsters. If you believe it does.” And in the final film, we see the Losers harnessing
the power of belief to imprint their will on Pennywise and shrink him down until he’s
weak enough to kill. Chapter Two had its fair share of cameos including
Stephen King who reunited Bill with his old bike Silver, director Andy Muschietti in the
pharmacy scene, and Brandon Crane who played young Ben in the TV miniseries and returns
in the scene featuring adult Ben’s teleconference with his architecture firm. However, fantasy and horror legend Guillermo
del Toro, who produced Muschietti’s debut feature film Mama, almost made an appearance
in the scene of young Ben running away from Pennywise at school. Del Toro was going to play the school janitor
that Ben bumped into and, of course, the scene would have ended up quite a bit longer, but
sadly, Muschietti couldn’t get schedules to line up with the famous filmmaker. Although Stephen King wasn’t involved in the
first IT movie, he really enjoyed the film; so, for Chapter Two, the filmmakers sent him
an early draft of the screenplay for feedback. The author gave them “a little list of things
that he would like to see in the movie”, one of which was the Paul Bunyan statue attack
on Richie which did make it in. However, in an interview with io9, Andy Muschietti
revealed King had also requested the inclusion of a scene from the end of the book where
“the Standpipe [rolls] down the hill during the destruction of Derry.” The filmmakers ultimately decided against
this and Muschietti explained that “we didn’t go […] in that direction because I wanted
to keep the ending more intimate and more about the emotions of the humans of this group.” Still, there is a nod in the final film to
the novel’s destruction of Derry when after IT’s death, the underground cavern and sewer
cistern collapse and the entire Neibolt house falls apart into the sinkhole below. In Chapter Two, Bev manages to stop the Losers
leaving Derry when she reveals she’s had nightmares where she’s seen them die if they don’t defeat
IT during the current cycle. But there’s also an extended version of this
scene with some deleted footage in one of the trailers where Bev seems to hint at how
they will die. “I’ve seen all of us die. It consumes us from the inside until we don’t
have a choice anymore.” It sounds like she was suggesting that if
the Losers didn’t deal with IT now they might end up like Stan, consumed with fear [from
the inside] and eventually driven to suicide or some other horrible death. After the release of Chapter One, producer
Barbara Muschietti said they planned for the opening scene of the second part to feature
The Black Spot, which in King’s novel was a club mainly frequented by black customers. In the original script for Chapter One, there
was a flashback to the attack on the Black Spot club, however, that was cut from the
first movie and instead there was just a brief mention when the young Losers were checking
over Ben’s research into the history of Derry, and they tell us “the Black Spot was a nightclub
that was burned down by a racist cult.” It would have been interesting in Chapter
Two to see if The Black Spot fire was connected in any way with the fire that killed Mike’s
parents. In the end though, the filmmakers decided
to open the sequel with the brutal Adrian Mellon scene, which follows King’s book and
also fits well with the movie’s new LGTBQ storyline. If you’d like to see many of these deleted
and extended scenes, then the great news is that Andy Muschietti is working on what he
calls a “supercut” of both IT Chapters One and Two, which he estimates could be around
six and a half hours long. As well as adding back in many of the deleted
scenes from both movies, Muschietti is planning to film two additional scenes, one of which
is from King’s novel while the other is entirely new. In fact, one of those new scenes will be “related
to a resolution of the perpetrators of Adrian Mellon’s beating,” bringing some justice for
that crime. Muschietti reckons that in the age of bingeing
content, fans will love a 6-hour plus movie to watch either in one go or to split up into
smaller pieces. In fact, another possibility is that the entire
story gets recut into a mini-TV series that includes the original and unused footage in
a similar way to what Quentin Tarantino did with an extended version of The Hateful Eight
movie on Netflix. By the way, if you’d like to see more cool

  1. Hey Movie Lovers, are you excited for a 6-hour SUPERCUT of IT? 😱🤡😃
    Here's the link for the Pennywise Funko Pop giveaway! ►

  2. I'm not sure if this is true, but there was meant to be a Reddie kiss, but it was cut because Stephen ing didn't want the hardcore IT novel stans to get triggered because it wasn't it the book. we nEEDED THAT stEpHeN, you can't just dO tHAt-

  3. So excited for the supercut. I want to see more action of Pennywise. I wonder if they have filmed the part when Pennywise eats a baby!

  4. Anyone else feel like the 2nd movie still focused too much on the kids and kinda shoved the adults to the side? I didnt mind the flashbacks but it seemed like there was so many of them that it felt like the adults were pushed to the sidelines.

  5. I love how Endgame was hyped up for being 2 hours long, but It Chapter 2 is 15 minutes shy of being 3 hours long and no one cared.

  6. I was a little disappointed that they didn’t put in Pennywise’s dialog during the Adrian Mellon scene. I felt like it would have been much more effective to show his manipulation

  7. 1:22, Um… I actually got to see that scene in the movie? Were there different cuts of the movie for theatrical release?

  8. If theres going to be a follow up scene to Mellons death with the reason that its a crime and to see justice…are we going to get follow up scenes to Victorias and the mirror kids deaths because theyre kids and thats a crime to kill a kid

  9. Wow if the deleted scene was left in it would have made more sense why Mike was so hell bent on killing Pennywise , His determination did not really make sense to me in the movie.

  10. Andy is a legend for just having so much fun in filming more and more material for the IT movie. He even said he still isn't done filming. And he's crazy enough to maybe even make a 3rd movie. Gotta love him for that. I'm looking forward for the director's cut.

  11. I like the history of pennywise terrorizing the lady and her children more than what they went for in the script. It’s seems more terrifying. I would also like to see more of an in depth back story of pennywise and how he came about.

  12. I don’t just want a super cut and a third movie. I NEED them. And if I don’t get them, I’m going to jab razor sharp acupuncture needles straight into my fucking eyeballs.

  13. The beginning of chapter 2 was the saddest part for me. Imagine being completely helpless as you watch your loved one get brutally beaten (nearly to death), thrown over a bridge, then eaten by a fucking clown. Just awful.

  14. They had a four hour cut they liked and they should have cut that in half to get Two Sequels chapter 2 and chapter 3 — they are so stupid to think audiences want a nearly Three Hour long sequel. No that's way too long. Would have been so much smarter to end up with Two two-hour Sequels from the four hour cut they were happy with. The stupidity by Warner Bros. is hilarious they pissed away hundreds of millions of dollars in pure profit by being so dumb.

  15. I don't recall Bev cutting all her hair off as a kid (in the book). Why does she have all her hair chopped off?? Maybe I am remembering incorrectly, but her LONG red hair was supposed to be a big thing/recurring detail in the book.

  16. just a little fun fact: in the scene about the black spot, there is a character named Dick mentioned in the script. That is actually Dick Hallorann from the Shining. He used to cook for the black spot before moving to colorado and cooking for the overlook hotel.
