Director Andy Muschietti has recently been floating the idea of a massive, extended “supercut” of both IT movies, which would include unseen deleted scenes from both along with (potentially) brand new scenes that haven’t even been filmed yet. This is all hypothetical at this point, with no concrete plans in motion, but Muschietti seems determined to make it happen.

“It would probably be around six hours and a half,” he recently noted.

Now in a new chat with Consequence of Sound, Muschietti details two of the deleted scenes that would be part of that nearly 7-hour-long combination of Chapter One and Two.

“There’s a scene that we shot that’s in the 1600s. I decided not to put it in the film because it was a little confusing,” Muschietti explained to the site, touching upon an “origin story” sequence for Pennywise. “You know, the problem is that people sometimes want to know a little more, but if you give them too much, then they’re disappointed. It’s like a magic trick in a way.”

He added, “That’s a scene that I love, but I will have to see how it can be re-orchestrated into the big cut if it happens.”

Muschietti also touched upon a deleted scene involving the celestial turtle known as Maturin, an ancient figure who appears in King’s IT novel as well as The Dark Tower.

“When you see McAvoy confronting his fear in the flooded basement, and he kills the notion of guilt by killing himself as a kid, he jumps back in the water. He’s lost, there is no way out, and suddenly, the eyes of Pennywise — Pennywise Bill, the kid — come out of the dark. But it’s not Pennywise, it’s the turtle that is swimming by him,” Muschietti details. “And he views the turtle and he’s sort of fascinated, like, ‘What is this thing?’, and very soon after, the kids are swimming after it. So, McAvoy follows them toward the light, and he emerges back in the cavern.”

“It’s a beautiful scene, but I had to leave it out over pacing reasons. It was very emotional, but it was not in the right moment, where things had to move faster.”
