IT - POP! "Pennywise" Vinyl Figure
The origins of IT...
The creature called IT is obviously not a clown at all. IT is an ancient evil being that is perhaps billions of years old, as old as the universe itself. IT comes from the void that contains our entire universe called the Macroverse (this is also referred to as the Todash Darkness in Stephen King's Dark Tower novels). IT's home dimension is a realm called the Deadlights; in the novel, Billy (played by Jaeden Lieberher in the 2017 film) glimpsed IT's true form in the Deadlights for a moment and he described it as an endless, crawling, hairy creature made of orange light. Though IT likes to manifest itself as a male clown named Pennywise, in the novel IT also takes the form of an enormous female spider. IT's natural enemy is another being from the Macroverse called The Turtle. The Turtle also appears in The Dark Tower series as Maturin, one of the Guardians of the Beam. IT describes itself as "the superior being" compared to the Turtle.
IT arrived on Earth in a cataclysmic event millions of years ago, landing in the section of North America where the town of Derry, Maine, would eventually be built. IT slumbered beneath the Earth for millions of years, awaiting the arrival of Mankind. When the town of Derry was built in 1715, IT awoke and began a cycle of feeding on the fears of the people of Derry and then resuming hibernation for cycles of 27 to 30 years. IT would prey on the children of Derry because children's fears are easier to harvest and then manipulate into physical form. IT takes the form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown because King believes "clowns scare children more than anything else in the world." In the novel, however, Pennywise's real name is Bob Gray. IT also influences the adults of Derry to passively ignore it and not interfere with IT's attacks on Derry's children.Read more at: https://screenrant.com/it-movie-pennywise-clown-origin-explained
