If you are among the many that were blown away by Andy Muschietti’s It then you will be glad to know that you’ll be able to see even more when the film is released on DVD and Blu-ray, because a director’s cut will accompany its home release.
When speaking to Yahoo! director Andy Muschietti spoke about a particular scene that he’d like to see make the director’s cut:
“There’s a great scene, it’s a bit of a payoff of the Stanley Uris plot which is the bar mitzvah, where he delivers a speech against all expectations… it’s basically blaming all the adults of Derry [for the town’s history of deadly “accidents” and child disappearances], and it has a great resolution. … Maybe it will be in the director’s cut!”
Muschietti has suggested that around 15 extra minutes will be added to the Director’s Cut and may also feature an extended version of the scene where the Losers Club jump of the cliff. Apparently, “It escalates into something that is completely weird and irrelevant to the scene but is so funny. Jack Grazer, who plays Eddie, does something that is completely bonkers.”
We’d love to see even more from It and its characters like Stan Uris, even though we thought the theatrical cut was a fantastic adaptation of the story as it is. Check out our review of It here and keep your eyes and ears open for a release date for the
DVD and Blu-ray.
It is out NOW!
