It Chapter Two will be coming to theaters in the United States on September 6, 2019. This movie premiered on August 26, 2019.
It Chapter Two finishes the story that began in the movie, It. Both films are based on the Stephen King novel of the same name. It tells the first half of the story, in which a group of children form “The Losers Club” in order to battle an entity who calls himself “Pennywise the Dancing Clown.” Pennywise had killed the younger brother of one of the members and all of the members of the club had been terrorized by manifestations of this clown.
In It Chapter Two, the surviving members of the Losers Club are all adults. They took a vow that they would return if and when Pennywise manifested again, which of course, he does.
The child actors from the first movie got the opportunity to select the adult actors who would play them in the sequel. It Chapter Two stars James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain, Bill Hader, Isaiah Mustafa, Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Andy Bean, and Bill Sakrsgård. The screenplay was written by Gary Dauberman, and this film was directed by Andy Muschietti. Stephen King also makes a cameo appearance in this movie.
It Chapter Two has received fairly good reviews, receiving an aggregate score of 68% on Rotten Tomatoes. Some of the complaints were that the film was too long and that it was not scary enough. Still, reviewers praised the cast and the fact that the movie stayed very close to the novel.
Will It Chapter Two be coming to Netflix in the future?
If you are waiting to watch It Chapter Two at home with your Netflix subscription, you will probably be disappointed.
It is highly unlikely that It Chapter Two will be coming to Netflix in the future, at least not in the United States.
It Chapter Two is being distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures. Warner Bros. Pictures used to have a good relationship with Netflix, and many Warner Bros shows could be seen there. Yet, along with Disney, Warner Bros will be entering the ever-growing field of streaming services with HBO Max.
HBO Max is set to launch in the United States in 2020, and most likely, It Chapter Two will go there when it finishes in theaters.
On the other hand, we do not know what, if any, plans, Warner has for international markets, so it is possible that It Chapter Two may still go to Netflix in regions other than the United States.
Where to stream and watch It
Because It Chapter Two is a direct sequel to It, and they are two parts of the same novel, you will probably want to watch It before watching It Chapter Two.
Unfortunately, you will not be able to see It on Netflix at the present time either. You can watch it on Hulu if you have the Live TV add-on. Other than that, you can buy or rent It on Amazon Prime Video, YouTube, Google Play, and Vudu.
