With the film already clocking in at over two hours, director Andy Muschietti had to cut various scenes that further developed the friendships of the Losers' Club, teasing to Yahoo! Movies in September what scenes he had to cut.
"There's a great scene, it's a bit of a payoff of the Stanley Uris plot which is the bar mitzvah, where he delivers a speech against all expectations," the director shared. "It's basically blaming all the adults of Derry [the town in which the story unfolds], and it has a great resolution. … Maybe it will be in the director's cut!"
In the original novel, a group of adults reunites to battle an evil force they faced 27 years earlier when they were growing up together in the small town of Derry, ME. Now that the presence has returned and is more deadly than ever, they aim to settle the score once and for all.
Both the original novel and 1990 miniseries utilized flashbacks to explore these characters in two different timelines, but the 2017 adaptation focused solely on the young characters with the 2019 sequel set to focus on the adults.
"After the spitting contest it escalates into something that is completely weird and irrelevant to the scene but is so funny," Muschietti teased of another cut scene. "Jack Grazer, who plays Eddie, does something that is completely bonkers."
