What is the Storyline of IT Chapter Two?
The movie opens with the return of It to Derry, Maine, where he begins to spread his terror. The only member of the Losers Club to have stayed in Derry, Mike Hanlan, informs other members of the group about the entire situation and reminds them about the promise to return if It also returns, in order to kill him. While not all the members of the Losers Club were sure to stay, the fear of getting killed stopped them.
While It continues to wreak havoc, Mike and Bill discover that Ritual of Chud can help stop It forever. As the story progresses, the Losers encounter threats from It in various ways but somehow manage to survive. Towards the end, by overcoming their past guilts and fears, Losers successfully kill It forever.
However, Eddie gets killed in the encounter. At last, members are seen happily moving on in their lives without the fear that once haunted them as children and caused their pal Stanley to kill himself.
