Originals vs Remakes: IT Movies

March 2, 2020

We start a new series for the podcast, by talking about the original films versus the remakes or reboots. Do they work? Do they fail? This is the idea behind the new idea. And first up to debut this new creation is our chat about the IT movies. So let's take a look at what we'll be talking about. And if you enjoyed this idea, please offer suggestions for future episodes.

---------------------------------------

IT (1990): In 1960, seven pre-teen outcasts fight an evil demon who poses as a child-killing clown. Thirty years later, they reunite to stop the demon once and for all when it returns to their hometown.

This was also known as a TV Mini-Series. Separated into 2 Episodes for One Season.

---------------------------------------

IT CHAPTER ONE (2017): In the summer of 1989, a group of bullied kids band together to destroy a shape-shifting monster, which disguises itself as a clown and preys on the children of Derry, their small Maine town.

This was the remake from the original mini series, taking both parts and turning them into two separate films.

---------------------------------------

IT CHAPTER TWO (2019): Twenty-seven years after their first encounter with the terrifying Pennywise, the Losers Club have grown up and moved away, until a devastating phone call brings them back.

The second and final chapter of the new run. Which the original showed both "chapters".
