IT movie: Did new Pennywise trailer just reveal THE LEPER?


A new Spanish trailer for the horror movie has revealed Pennywise talking to one of the terrified kids.

The scene isn’t dubbed in Spanish so it is the first clear chance to hear Bill Skarsgard’s interpretation of the iconic character.

The lines are certainly creepy enough as he almost whispers: “Where are you going? You look like a nice boy. I bet you have a lot of friends.”

Fans have imemdiately divided over whether the voice sounds right, or whether it is supposed to be The Leper rather than Pennywise speaking.

To modern ears the tone and content immediately suggest disturbing undertones of an adult grooming a child.

Comments on the new trailer mention the “paedophile” implications, but most are focussed on the actor’s performance and whether or not fans will see more than just the scary clown aspect of the monster known as IT. 

One fan gushed: “This is incredible and the voice of Pennywise is perfect.”

Another, though, blasted: “‘Where you going?’ He sounds like Scooby doo.”

Many fans are alraedy debating whether the voice heard isn’t in fact Pennywise the clown but another one of the creature’s famous manifestations.

One said of the dialogue: “It won’t be Pennywise’s voice, it will be the Leper’s.”

Another added: “The scene where he says ‘You look like a nice boy,’ could be The Leper.”  

In the original source novel, The Leper or Diseased Homeless Man is the version of IT Eddie first encounters under the porch of the house on 29 Neibolt Street.

The scenes shown in the new trailer don’t seem to portray that moment, however the movie could move certain things around, or be showing visuals accompanied by the lines from a different moment in the horror blockbuster.

Although we have only seen Pennywise so far in the teasers and trailers, it’s clear that many fans are hoping for other aspects of the horror icon to also appear in the upcoming movie.
