Before 2017's IT haunted the big screen, the 1990 miniseries Stephen King's IT brought King's epic novel to life on ABC. Featuring an iconic performance by Tim Curry as Pennywise, Stephen King's IT has chilled generations of viewers, and nearly 30 years after its premiere, the behind-the-scenes stories from the making of the miniseries will come to the surface in Pennywise: The Story of IT, and we've been provided with the extended trailer that features several of the more than 40 interview participants, including Tim Curry, Tim Reid, makeup effects guru Bart Mixon, and more!
