    With the recent arrival of It Chapter 2 in theatres, fans everywhere seem to have even more questions about the origins of the notorious Pennywise The Dancing Clown! While some of us prefer to think of monstrous clown creatures as little as possible, others have delved deep in order to uncover the fascinating backstory of one of our most frightening villains. If you belong to that second camp, we’ve done some serious digging and have come up with some answers about the origin of Pennywise that might just have you running to the movies, or in the opposite direction.
    For starters, It has actually been hanging around Earth causing mayhem for upwards of thousands of years, even millions! We know that It came to Earth from another universe and landed in what would later become the town of Derry, Maine. There, he first encountered the First Nations Shokopiwa peoples, and it is believed that it is with them that his habit of eating children for a year and then chillaxing for twenty seven began to form. We know that they tried to defeat him but failed, and then moved to the outskirts of Derry to get away from his evil behaviour. But why does It seem to have to stick to Derry if he is so powerful? Well some believe that he and the town are actually tied together on a much deeper level, that It’s wellbeing is dependant on that of the town. Check out these amazing theories and more incredible backstory of Pennywise in the video below, and we hope you have fun watching!

    Pennywise is like Jeepers Creepers. A demon that feeds on fear every twenty-something years.
