Where did Pennywise come from

Cut IT scene shows the origin of Pennywise

The "disturbing" scene was not seen in the final cut of the Stephen King film "Es - It".
"There was a scene that we shot, a flashback from the early 17th century, before Pennywise," said Bill SkarsgÄrd, the cast of the horror clown, whose form ES prefers to take, already revealed in September (via "Digital Spy") .

"The scene got really dark and disturbing. And I'm not the clown. I look more like myself. It's very disturbing and kind of a backstory about what IT is, or where Pennywise is from."

The "disturbing" scene is not yet to be seen (the bonus material of the upcoming DVD or the second part of "Es" planned for 2019 could help), but read about it. An excerpt from the script is currently making the rounds on the Internet.

Mother sacrifices her child

The year is 1637; a 19-year-old woman named Abigail crouches in front of the dying fire of her hearth with her baby in her arms. IT approaches her, "naked, slim, his flesh pale and transparent, a half-finished imitation of a person" with "razor-sharp teeth". The monster demands the child as an offering and wants to spare Abigail's rest of the family for it. Finally the young woman agrees.

"She turns away from the baby. Looks at the dying sparks. We stay with her face as it shines brightly [over her shoulder - blurred] while Pennywise crawls over to the baby and begins to eat."

"The baby's piercing scream stops and we hear a crack. Abigail continues to look into the bright orange glow that comes not from the flickering fire ... but from the dead lights. Her expression changes. Fear. Denial. Grief. Acceptance . And then nothing. Just a gloomy look. As if nothing terrible was happening behind her. "
