A monster of unknown origins, It originated before the creation of the universe itself in a dimension named the “Deadlights,” and It’s true form is never revealed. Because of this, the Losers’ Club does not know what It actually is, giving the creature its name. The form It takes the most is that of a sadistic clown, named Pennywise. The clown form is used as a decoy when stalking a child. In It’s home under the sewers, It takes the form of a monstrous pregnant female black spider. This form is determined to be the closest to It’s true physical shape. Having control over what happens in Derry, many of the child murders It commits are never solved, as the adults of Derry either act as though nothing is happening or have forgotten about It.


The monster arrived on Earth in the form of an asteroid during prehistory, landing on what later would become the town of Derry, and hibernated there until humans settled and colonized the place. It awoke, fed on the settlers, and started a cycle of hibernation, in which It would sleep for almost three decades and be awake for over two years. Every time It’s hibernation stage finished, events of extreme violence happened in Derry. To feed on its prey, It transforms into the shape of whatever the victim most fears to extract their fear and consume it.

“The costume definitely incorporates all these otherworldly past lives, if you will. He is definitely a clown from a different time.” said costume designer Janie Bryan in an interview with EW.

‘It’ based on Stephen King’s novel is scheduled for a September 8, 2017, theatrical release.
