What to expect in It Chapter Two?
Muschietti revealed while speaking to Syfy in September 2017, that the film would also incorporate the character Maturin, which is an ancient turtle and the antithesis of It.
“I think in the second part, the turtle will try to help them. In the second movie, the turtle left a few clues to their childhood that they don’t remember,” he disclosed. “They have to retrieve those memories from the summer of 1989, and that’s how we jump back to 1989. The keys to defeating Pennywise are left in the past, and as adults, they don’t remember.”
Screenwriter Gary Dauberman told SlashFilm in September, “The Jade of the Orient is such a defining and iconic scene in the book. That was something I remember as a thing I was writing towards”
He added, “It was like, ‘Okay, coming up is Jade of the Orient. That’s going to be super cool’. It was a nice signpost to write towards, which I dug.”
It has also been confirmed that this It reboot won’t stretch all the way to a series. “No, this is a complete story,” Dauberman clarified about the storyline purpose of It: Chapter Two. “The ending I think will satisfy the audience and maybe break their hearts a little bit.”
