We’re all patiently waiting for the home release of the most successful Stephen King adaptation of the last few years – Andy Muschietti’s It: Chapter One, which will hit stores on January 9. The first cinematic adaptation of King’s iconic horror story followed the original TV miniseries that first introduced us to the live-action Pennywise the Dancing Clown, played by Tim Curry. Curry left some pretty big shoes for Bill Skarsgård to fill when Muschietti brought the story to the big screen, and a new featurette has been released that takes a closer look at Skarsgård’s version of the character.
Pennywise Lives! will be included in the upcoming Blu-ray release, but you can check it out now:
Pennywise has featured heavily in all marketing for the film, and the upcoming Walmart exclusive Blu-ray follows suit with this recently revealed cover:
