Get ready to geek out, horror fans. We just got the first photo of the IT: Chapter 2 cast all in one place, and we didn’t know how much we needed this.
For those who need a refresher, the grown-up Losers Club officially consists of Jessica Chastain as Beverly; James McAvoy as Bill (whose little brother disappears); Jay Ryan as Ben (who writes the poem for Beverly); Bill Hader as Richie (played by our favorite, Finn Wolfhard, in Chapter 1); Andy Bean as Stanley; James Ransone as Eddie, and Isaiah Mustafa as Mike.
The photo was posted on the official IT Movie Instagram account with the caption, “Back to Derry with these Losers,” and it appears to be a snapshot from a table read. Even better, it looks like the new cast is getting along just like the childhood besties they’re portraying.
Here’s their childhood counterparts, just for reference:
And of course fans are ecstatic to get this first — albeit brief – look at the adult cast. One wrote, “I’M CRYING,” while a number of others simply posted dozens upon dozens of red balloons.
IT: Chapter 2 is set to be released on September 6th, 2019, and takes place 27 years after the events of the first film. We’re both excited and terrified.
