Andy Muschietti’s IT arrives on 4K Ultra HD, Blu-ray and DVD tomorrow, January 9, and though we’re unfortunately not (yet) getting the Extended Cut of the film we had recently been promised, the good news is that the package will include eleven deleted/extended scenes, which together add up to 15-minutes of new content!
One of those extended scenes is actually an alternate ending, showing Bill’s return home after the Losers’ Club defeats Pennywise. The theatrical cut of the film ends with Beverly kissing Bill before the two kids part ways, but this extended scene shows Bill returning home afterwards and embarking on a family vacation with his mom and dad.
“I know it’s not Acadia,” Bill’s mom tells him after kissing him on the forehead, “but maybe we can make some new memories.”
Georgie, of course, didn’t make it home for the trip.
If this extended version of the final scene had stayed in, the film would’ve ended with an ominous shot of a storm drain, teasing the return of Pennywise in IT: Chapter 2.
