    Man, I am still wishing for those director cuts of the movies, but I guess that will never happen. The series sounds great though. To bad I don't have HBO Max.

    Netflix, Disney+, HBO Max, Hulu, Peacock etc...
    If people wants it all, it costs a fortune... may as well not bother with any and use the alternatives

    Andy Muschietti told me about this project back in 2020. It was driving me insane that it didn't move forward

    According to Variety, HBO Max and Warner Bros. have announced the development of an It prequel series, titled Welcome to Derry. Andy Muschietti, the director of the two films in 2017 and 2019, will return to executive produce the series, alongside his sister Barbara Muschietti.

    I see HBO Max has added the 1990 It miniseries in HD. I didn't know it was remastered.

    I don't know about the US, but around 2003 or so, the french distributor did a brand new audio recording so that the quality was satisfying for DVD.
    And the audio recording is not quite as scary as the original VHS IMO

    There’s been a Blu-ray release for a few years now.

    Demystifying Pennywise by filling in a lot of background material is the typical lazy Hollywood approach. There is no plausible explanation for Pennywise. That's part of what makes him interesting. To attempt to provide a narrative will make the story ludicrous. Sometimes vague is better to paraphrase Pet Semetery.

    While I don't think in a million years that they will incorporate this into the new series, Pennywise is from, Roland's world I believe is the general consensus of the constant readers and Dark Tower junkies. I believe, Dandelo is thought to be related to, Old Pennywise. Therefore, its a decent chance that IT (pun intended LOL) originally came from "Kas-Ga-Rey" (?) very near the tower itself. Incorporating that back story on how he came to dwell in, Derry would certainly provide a pretty good reason to the story.

    However, since there is, IMHO little chance that they are smart enough to realize this angle or can legally portray it in film I don't really see where this series will have any worthwhile content. That's just MHO. Taking the "Losers" and the 2 30 year conflicts out and I don't see where they will do more than re-package the films basically.
    28 in 22 (?)!!!!
