This Hilarious Deleted Scene From ‘IT’ Shows Pennywise In A Whole New Light

Poor Georgie. It sucks that after all he went through in IT, he died of mesothelioma from being exposed to carcinogens in that sewer. Turns out, he needed the law offices of James Sokolove more than he needed his rugrat friends going on a crusade to rescue him.  For those of you who believed that statement, let this be a lesson to you: never read posts about a movie prior to watching it yourself. That’s like reading Steven Avery’s trial notes before watching Making A Murderer.

I take it I’ve lost all those folks who have preemptively clicked on this post before seeing the movie, and only the sane people remaining. God, what’s with those people?

Anyway, it should be of no surprise to you when I recall the opening scene of the movie when little Georgie is playing with his boat before it slips down a storm drain, only to be surprised by Pennywise lurking in the sewer. Georgie then suffers a gruesome fate when Pennywise severs off his arm and drags him into the sewer.

Well, in a deleted scene shared on Twitter, Georgie experiences a much happier fate, and the incident in which the entire plot of the movie hinges on vanishes.

This wasn’t a scene created by a fan to parody the movie, but an actual scene filmed with the actual cast and crew. It’s not sure why the comedic scene was even filmed–nevermind kept–in the first place. One fan claims that it could have been used to put Jack Grazer (Georgie) at ease before shooting the actual gruesome scene.

Whatever the case may be, this deleted scene is a hell of a lot lighter than the this one.

The anti-drug people gave him a $50 savings bond for his brave contribution to crime-fighting, and upon the bond’s maturity 10 years later, he used it to buy his very first bag of marijuana.
