IT director Andy Muschietti has revealed to Bloody Disgusting that a Director’s Cut of the film, which is 15-minutes longer than the theatrical cut, is on its way to DVD and Blu-ray.
While there aren’t a lot of details about the IT Director’s Cut yet, we do know that it will include the deleted and extended scenes found on the theatrical DVD/Blu-ray release.
