Pennywise The Clown is the main antagonist of the novel and film IT. It was an animalistic extra-dimensional entity who would almost always disguise itself as a clown to attract children, so that it could capture and eat them as they were an easier target.

He is portrayed by Bill Skårsgard.

IT Edit

It was part of the disasters that occurred every 27 years in the Maine town of Derry.

IT was never against killing children. In fact, he actually preferred to kill children as they were an easier target for eating. That was probably why he chose the form of a clown, a figure that both entertained and terrified many young children. he had razor sharp teeth that it could use to eat people.

As the film progressed, a group of teenagers known as the Lucky Seven (also mockingly referred to as the "Losers' Club") banded together to kill Pennywise and end his reign of terror (after he had eaten the brother of one of them) and apparently succeed after they tracked him down to its lair after he kidnapped one of them for food. However, Pennywise, being a lesser-aspect of a higher being, was not going to stay dead forever and he swore revenge on the gang for his defeat before he disintigrated into nothingness.
