The Cast of ‘It’ Then vs. Now
It Chapter 2 floats into theaters today (September 6), which means it’s finally time to return to Derry with our favorite kids from the Losers Club.
The sequel, which follows 2017’s It, features a star-studded cast including Finn Wolfhard, James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and many more. The Losers Club are now all grown-up and ready to face Pennywise on yet another terrifying journey.
While many horror fans recognize the recent It franchise, we can’t forget where it all began: The terrifying tale that kicked off our collective fear of clowns is based on Stephen King’s 1986 novel of the same name. In 1990, it was adapted into a television mini-series, which was followed by two films in 2017 and 2019, respectively.
Over the years, different actors have brought to world of It alive on screen, from OG Pennywise Tim Curry to Bill Skarsgård — and we've rounded up both the original television cast and the recent movie series' stars to see how the characters have changed over the years.
So grab your single red balloon and yellow raincoat because it’s time to take a walk down memory lane. Keep your eyes peeled for Pennywise — you never know when he will pop up next.
