This is great news! But who decided to release It after Christmas? That is a mistake as it's after Christmas since they could have sold a gazillion copies for presents under the tree!!
Yeah, I'm surprised by that too. I would have to think there's some reason they can't get the physical copies made in time, because obviously they will have the content ready before Christmas since the digital version will be released.

If I'm parsing the linked article correctly, this version will have the deleted scenes but they will be extra features (as opposed to being interwoven into an extended cut of the movie). That's a little disappointing, but I'm glad we're getting them at all. I would've loved this movie if it had been 3 hours or longer.

We're planning on upgrading to a 4K TV soon, so looks like I'll be purchasing the 4K version. Can't wait to see Pennywise in ultra HD.

It's all marketing- they WILL release the Director's cut at a later date. Trust me. Just like they did with the Lord Of The Ring's movies- first we had theatrical versions then came the extended cuts with the added deleted scenes. $$$$

Maybe they will release the director's cut after they start working on Chapter 2 fully, and give us a behind the scenes look.

I'm holding out for the Director's Cut.

And on another note: I know everyone's probably fed-up of me posting the Box Office Mojo links, but even though the film is on its way out of theatres, IT is STILL making money!

As of yesterday (13/11), our clown-busting Losers have racked up a worldwide gross of $683,462,390.

Congratulations again to the cast and crew of this absolute gem of a movie. I hope I live long enough to see the horror film that tops this.

Hopefully, they will not interfere with the production of Chapter 2 when it starts. Just leave them alone, and it will be amazing.

Hopefully, there will be no trouble getting them all back for Chapter 2 since they are supposed to be doing new flashback scenes that weren't filmed for Part 1.
