Watch How ‘It Chapter Two’ Revisits a Drain of Terror | Anatomy of a Scene

“I’m Andy Muschietti,
director of ‘It Chapter Two.’ So this is the moment where
all the Losers separate unwillingly. And this is the scene where
we find Bill Denbrough– James McAvoy plays
Bill Denbrough– just as after he recovered
his bicycle, Silver. This is a great scene, because
we summarize a little bit in this escalation
from not being able to ride his bicycle to
actually getting a grip on it and riding it like a champion. We sort of illustrate how the
adult turns into the child again.” “Hi-ho, Silver! Away!” “And very soon he
arrives to the house where he used to live
and another memory hits. And it’s the memory of that
infamous day where he sent Georgie away with a boat. That’s a scene that we
took from the first movie. So the scene changes
mood a little bit. The mood is now
a little darker. We know what
happened after that. But it’s a memory
that has been pushed down and pushed down. But the intention
with the scene is to like slowly
lure the audience into this memory
at the same time that it’s happening on
the mind of the character. There’s a transition
that you can see when McAvoy first
arrives to the storm drain and looks at the storm drain. He drops the bike, and
the drop of the bike takes us to the past.” “Billy, don’t leave!” “Hello?” “The scene continues. We see McAvoy talking
to a Georgie there. I say ‘a Georgie,’
because at this point, we know that Georgie
isn’t Georgie anymore. Georgie has been
gone for a long time. But because Pennywise is
playing with his feelings, he lures him into the illusion
that Georgie is still there. Everything that is shot from
the outside is location. It’s shot on the street. Everything that is
from the inside out, when the camera is
inside the storm drain, was shot on stage.” “Take my hand.” “Billy, please.” “I’ve got you. Come on!” “He’s coming!” “Take my hand!” “Billy!” “Come on! Take my hand!” “I wanted specifically to make
this a visual effects shot. As a reference, we had some
hands of small performers that we used as a reference. The whole swarming is
divided in three shots, and it’s pretty creepy.” [LAUGHING] “I hate you! I hate you.”


  1. I thought this scene was so dumb. Did he really think Georgie was still down there after what we saw in chapter 1? Also, if Georgie was alive..why would he be the same age? lol

  2. Guys i hope you know pennywise wasnt playing around because georgie is still alive it was Georgies ghost they explain it in an interview with bill skarsgard Georgie couldnt climb out thats why he stood in one place

  3. How would billy fall for that it’s been 27 years and goergie is still little

    Edit do not call me a copy cat I noticed that before I looked into the comments i didn’t know someone already noticed

  4. Dude…it’s so sad, he actually thought for a split second that Georgie was there, MAN PENNYWISE CUT BILL SOME SLACK!

  5. This was one of the best scenes of the film. It had that same eerie, sad, creepy tone of the first film which Chapter 2 lacked a lot.

  6. One of my favourite scenes from the movie! The fact that Pennywise talks to young Bill saying: "Why? Because you weren't there" it's really creepy and sad.

  7. Actually, that isn't Georgie. Pennywise bit his arm off, and if you look closely you see the glowing Pennywise eyes like the time when Georgie looked in the sewer.

  8. I assumed this scene was a battle between Pennywise and Myturin/Gan. Why would pennywise just give Bill a token to his demise without even injuring him?

  9. I'm a bit confused…
    So is that kid georgie or pennywise?
    Is georgie alive?
    Did pennywise eat georgie?
    Anyone answer me(reply pls)

  10. Out of all the scenes of it chapter 2 this is one of my personal favourites. I love how he’s so happy when he recovers his bike again.

  11. Gosh so dramatic its creepy and sad but how the heck does bill believe its georgie when 27 years has passed but good scene

  12. I have a theory that pennywise's like Jeepers creepers the creeper you know how what when Georgie was there he said he's coming I feel like when pennywise kills someone and takes them there still a part of him so when he took his form which Bill already knows and means that Georgie actually had a voice pennywise takes a fictional character something that isn't real that someone fears then he has total control over it but if he's doing something like Georgie Georgie asked to come and talk to him
