If King wrote a prequel I'd be down for a prequel but them going out on their own and doing it from scratch, no thanks. Firestarter 2 and Carrie 2 come to mind when they decide to take a King story and do their own thing, and those were horrible films. As for merchandise, I have a hunch they'll run Pennywise merchandise into the ground. McFarlane is taking it slow with Stranger Things and Harry Potter but Neca and Funko are going overboard with Pennywise and they're beyond obsessed with Aliens, lord knows why.
Agreed

I honestly don't see the point of doing an IT: Chapter Three. Yes, Pennywise is cool, and the mythology detailed in the book is fantastic. BUT...

...exactly what kind of story are you going to tell? Watching IT crash to Earth in a meteor and feed on dinosaurs and eventually cave-men (er, sorry, I meant persons of the cavern-like persuasion, just in case there are any Social Justice Warriors reading this although I care not one whit about their feelings) and then... what? Pennywise never faced any challenge to IT's existence until The Losers. So we'd have an Antagonist with no challenge, hence no drama, hence no story to be told. Watching Pennywise torture and kill people over a span of generations will get dull real quick because it's an aimless journey. The mythology King wrote in the book was to serve the main story, which has already been told in both films. The best we can hope for now is the director will get his wish from the studio to do a "supercut," which is both films edited with previously unreleased footage and some new scenes that Muschietti said he wants to film, thereby fleshing out the story even more.

Of course, if we're still around in 27 years, the next logical step would be a slavish adaptation of the books in cable series format.

That is about the average price for an official band or movie mug but one has to keep in mind, it is very expensive to get the licensing rights for popular films an IT is very, very popular right now.

Average movie t-shirt = 18-25 (if its actually licensed and not some bootleg)
Average movie figure = 15-30 (the better the sculpt the higher the price)
Average movie poster = 5-10 (this has pretty much been the same for the last 20 years)
That is true. I am also seeing it as something I don’t need as I already have a bunch of it and pennywise merchandise from the last movie. and most of the stuff I am seeing in stores is the new pennywise not much of tim curry pennywise

I hope not let it rest. If people whant to know more then read the book. I did hear something about the director has no really intrest in doing More but he whould like to shoot some more scenes and stuff that he could not do in the movies. For like a. Extended extended directors cut where he puts in all the delet d scenes and put it into one long ass 6 hour movie
