International Comic-Con San Diego (SDCC) got a scary start. The annual ScareDiego event shared an epic behind-the-scenes look at It: Chapter Two, the sequel to last year’s horror film that you are still having nightmares about (or is that just me?).
Director Andy Muschietti sent a video from the Toronto set, where his cast and crew have been hard at work on the sequel since July 2. The BTS footage gave a glimpse of the Losers’ Club, which reunites in the film nearly 30 years later. The clip flashed scenes of the adult actors catching up in a restaurant in Derry. Cue grownup Finn Wolfhard: “Sup, losers? What do you want to talk about?”
The adult cast includes James McAvoy as Bill Denbrough, Isaiah Mustafa as Mike Hanlon, Jessica Chastain as Beverly Marsh, Jay Ryan as Ben Hanscom, James Ransone as Eddie Kaspbrak, and Andy Bean as Stanley Uris. Bill Skarsgård will return as the ghost of Pennywise the Clown (It). The official Twitter for the film shared a snap of the cast of beloved Losers.

When news first broke of last year’s adaptation, fans were skeptical. Despite the uncertainty, the movie was a success at the box office, thanks in a large part to its All Star list of child actors. Lucky for us, the all-grown-up cast seems just as promising.
This week, Chastain also shared a pic on Twitter that fans are already so on board for.

Say it with me, here 👏for 👏 this👏.
As of right now, the clip isn’t available anywhere online, and with the sequel not hitting theaters for more than a year, there likely won’t be any other sneak peeks for a while. Until then, happy horrors!
