It’s been a busy few weeks for the small town of Derry, Maine.
With the arrival of some new visitors, a photo posted by the IT movie’s official Twitter account has marked our first full look at the adult-version of the Loser’s Club…together:

If you’re unsure of who is who, one Twitter user also shared a comparison shot of each actor and their younger selves.

Seeing the adult-version of the club has us excited, and slightly spooked, of what’s to come.
While this is our first look at the club fully together, the cast doesn’t seem to be shy on posting snippets of their behind-the-scenes shenanigans (!!) Of course, the cast isn’t the only ones who have been giving details of the new horror film.
On June 25, it was announced that Teach Grant and Jess Weixler would be joining the cast of the IT sequel. Grant is set to play Henry Bowers, who was portrayed by Nicholas Hamilton in the first film, and Weixler will play Bill’s wife.
The two will be joining recently announced Xavier Dolan (The Death And Life Of John F. Donovan director,) who will be playing the role of Adrian Mellon and Will Beinbrink (Manhattan Night,) who is set to portray Tom Rogan.
We also know that the adult version of the Loser’s Club has been cast!
Jessica Chastain is set to play Beverly Marsh, James McAvoy will play Bill Denbrough, Bill Hader will take on the role of Richie Tozier, James Ransone will be Eddie Kaspbrak, Jay Ryan will play Ben Hanscom and Andy Bean will play Stan Uris and Isaiah Mustafa will play Mike Hanlon.
While the film will focus on the adult version of the club, that doesn’t mean the kids from the first film won’t make an appearance. As previously reported, the kids from the first film will appear in flashbacks during the sequel.
In addition to the new and old versions of the club appearing in the film, we also know that Bill Skarsgard will be coming back to eat the children, uhm, adults, of the Loser’s Club.
This experience will be something new for Skarsgard, who recently spoke to Den of Geek about what fans can expect from the horror film.
“It’s going to be a very different experience this time around, just given the fact that you have all of these incredible, seasoned actors to play against, as opposed to having all the kids,” Skarsgard said. “So it’s going to be a different experience for sure. But I’m looking forward to it.”
We can’t wait for IT: Chapter two! The new film will be hitting theaters on Sept. 6, 2019.
