It, also known as Pennywise the Dancing Clown, The Deadlights and Robert Gray, is the evil entity that has plagued Derry for over a million years. Throughout the novel, It by Stephen King, we receive a trickle of information regarding the history of It, from It's inception millions of years ago in an interdimensional void known as The Macroverse, to It's arrival in Derry before the Ice Age to It's ultimate battle against the Losers Club and beyond.
In this video I'll be going over the ENTIRE (!) chronological life of Pennywise / It, doing a complete breakdown and analysis of the character, discussing what drives It, what rules bind It, and explaining the events seen in the book that never made the movie or mini-series adaptations.
This will cover the entire known history of Pennywise from the creation of It to the present. Please note that this will only analyse the ancient creature as It is are written in the books of Stephen King. I will show clips from the movies as a visual aid, but for the purposes of Horror History, the books are canon!
I'll be covering every single detail we know about It from the book including It's origin, the mythology of It, the inspiration behind Pennywise, It explained + how it operates, discussing the different forms of It with the shapeshifting ability, and even talking about a few Things You Missed in this comprehensive breakdown and analysis of the character.

--About IT Chapter Two--
Evil resurfaces in Derry as director Andy Muschietti reunites the Losers Club-young and adult-in a return to where it all began with “It Chapter Two.”
The film is Muschietti’s follow-up to 2017’s critically acclaimed and massive worldwide box office hit “IT,” which grossed over $700 million globally. Both redefining and transcending the genre, “IT” became part of the cultural zeitgeist as well as the highest-grossing horror film of all time.
Because every 27 years evil revisits the town of Derry, Maine, “It Chapter Two” brings the characters-who’ve long since gone their separate ways-back together as adults, nearly three decades after the events of the first film.

@Jay Tee I recommend reading the Dark Tower Series. I read them all last year and got really into it.

@Shiv this is indeed one of the mythologies that inspired the Turtle being, which also is tied to The Dark Tower.

This was a really well done video but all I have to say about your Pennywise questions towards the end is, read The Dark Tower series. Because IT is in the series... so there ya go. Stephen King's various versions of his worlds have to exist because of the Dark Tower. The Dark Tower is the blood that flows through all of King's work and variations of his work.

I want to see this guy do a video about my life. I have a feeling he already knows more about me than I know about me. Give him a week, he will unlock all the mysteries of my existence. PS: I am 7 minutes into this and I can’t watch it anymore. This 7 minutes of Pennywise info is more than I needed to know. PPS: I’m turtle puke? PPPS: Just 7 minutes in he already has 2 taco metaphors. I’m almost curious enough to watch the rest to see how many more taco metaphors there are. PPPPS: How did the turtle puke? It was one of only 2 things that exist. How did its stomach get filled with anything in a void? Let alone full enough to puke the whole fucking universe? For all the complexity of this story and history, how do you just skip over puking a universe on an empty stomach??? Bro... someone needs to explain that.

I am amazed by people who take books/movies this seriously. This guy knows more about Pennywise than I know about anyone in my own family. I wish that was sarcasm, but it’s actually true.

So basically, the concept is “IT” is a spiritual or supernatural bully and picks on the weak. ESpecially kids kuz they have fears that are easily manipulated. So what you sayin is, he a bitch in real life.

so clearly because IT the clowns true form is a spider and a beldam could be a spider from our theory about Coraline's movie, they both could be related somehow, The clown could be the same beldam since the clown is a female, and the beldam is a female, Also they both like children the beldam in Coraline's movie liked children because they are scared easily, and it helps the beldam to live, and the clown eats children because of the same reason the children help the clown to live the beldam and clown are also very old these are many evidences and are based on both the characters so my theory is that the beldam and clown are 1 person or are related somehow and they both try to be friendly with the victim then come out on their true form because when the clown wanted to eat Georgie he started to friendly then ate him, and the beldam started being friendly with Coraline to feed of her soul they both use helpers and things that the kids dislike, Coraline dislikes insects they both choose a place in which they could kill kids without anyone knowing , in derry people simply did not care , and they were not wise enough , in coraline movie , there were not a lot of residents , and they didnt care , and didnt go out of the house often .

By 1:30 you made your several mistakes. 1. The Deadlights is where IT lives/its existence. Several times it mentions that it lives in the Deadlights. 2. The other didn't create it. The other only crested the turtle. The turtle created it during a stomach ache. This is directly referenced the first time Bill does the ritual of chitlu (misspelled). As Bill goes "skidding by" the turtle tells Bill not to blame him for IT. He had a tummy ache. Get yiur king right brah.
