Everything is connected in the Stephen King Universe.
While this year’s The Dark Tower heavily played up the story’s connection to other King tales, loaded with direct references to everything from Cujo to The Shining, Andy Muschietti’s IT didn’t quite take the same approach.
But there was at least one fun King Easter egg that you might’ve missed…
As pointed out by my friend Michael Varrati on Twitter, the car that Henry Bowers and his gang drive around is the very same car that the cat-like Charles drives in Mick Garris and Stephen King’s 1992 film Sleepwalkers!
Both Henry Bowers and Charles Brady drive a 1978 Pontiac Firebird Trans Am – the exact same vehicle, right down to the “Martinique Blue” color!
Sadly, Pennywise never takes the form of a hairless cat creature in the new film.
