Trivia: When the adults walk into the library, you'll see some of Bill's books on display (Bill is described as the Stephen King character), and all of Bill's books (Whether it's the name, topic, or cover picture) are based in some way on Stephen King's books. For instance - The Glowing/The Shining.
Trivia: At the library IT writes something on the type-writer, a verse which Bill tells the others his mother gave him as a kid to help with his stuttering. The verse goes "He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts." In the book, young Bill used this verse to defeat IT in the Chüd ritual.
Pennywise: I'm every nightmare you've ever had. I'm your worst dream come true. I'm everything you ever were afraid of.
Bill: He thr-thr-thr-thrusts his fi-fi-fists ag-ag-against the pos-posts and...
Ben: He thrusts his fists against the posts and still insists he sees the ghosts. That's all it says over and over.
Bill: Th-th-thats w-w-what m-m-my m-m-mom g-gave me t-to h-help with my st-st-stutter.
Richie: I hate to tell you buddy, it ain't working.
Pennywise: [digging graves.] Take your pick, B-b-b-billy boy. Oh, except for the one on the end. That one's already taken. Sorry!
Question: Pennywise, the Singing and Dancing clown, is dressed in bright colors in the movie. The clown in the book wore silver. Does anyone know why this change was made?
