The plan was always to do a two-part adaptation of King's IT , but while they didn't do any preparation for the sequel when making the first movie, Muschietti told Digital Spy that they did set up a key plot point. Sort of like balls thrown forward to be caught later, in a way. And you see that in the Deadlights," he explained of the first movie. That really paid off at the end, when we caught it, and actually made it the reason why the Losers have to stay in town, actually. In the sequel, Beverly tells the Losers Club that after her experience with the Deadlights at the end of It Chapter One , she knows that they will die if they leave Derry and don't stop Pennywise. We generated a reason — a credible reason — for the Losers to stay, which is basically: if they go, they will die. Which is something that doesn't happen in the book," Muschietti continued.
