Chapter 2

2 When the day of Pentecost (A) came, they were all together (B) in one place. 2 Suddenly a sound like the blowing of a violent wind came from heaven and filled the whole house where they were sitting. (C) 3 They saw what seemed to be tongues of fire that separated and came to rest on each of them. 4 All of them were filled with the Holy Spirit (D) and began to speak in other tongues [a] (E) as the Spirit enabled them.

5 Now there were staying in Jerusalem God-fearing (F) Jews from every nation under heaven. 6 When they heard this sound, a crowd came together in bewilderment, because each one heard their own language being spoken. 7 Utterly amazed, (G) they asked: “Aren’t all these who are speaking Galileans? (H) 8 Then how is it that each of us hears them in our native language? 9 Parthians, Medes and Elamites residents of Mesopotamia, Judea and Cappadocia, (I) Pontus (J) and Asia, [b] (K) 10 Phrygia (L) and Pamphylia, (M) Egypt and the parts of Libya near Cyrene (N) visitors from Rome 11 (both Jews and converts to Judaism) Cretans and Arabs—we hear them declaring the wonders of God in our own tongues!” 12 Amazed and perplexed, they asked one another, “What does this mean?”

13 Some, however, made fun of them and said, “They have had too much wine.” (O)

Peter Addresses the Crowd

14 Then Peter stood up with the Eleven, raised his voice and addressed the crowd: “Fellow Jews and all of you who live in Jerusalem, let me explain this to you listen carefully to what I say. 15 These people are not drunk, as you suppose. It’s only nine in the morning! (P) 16 No, this is what was spoken by the prophet Joel:

17 “‘In the last days, God says,
I will pour out my Spirit on all people. (Q)
Your sons and daughters will prophesy, (R)
your young men will see visions,
your old men will dream dreams.
18 Even on my servants, both men and women,
I will pour out my Spirit in those days,
and they will prophesy. (S)
19 I will show wonders in the heavens above
and signs on the earth below, (T)
blood and fire and billows of smoke.
20 The sun will be turned to darkness
and the moon to blood (U)
before the coming of the great and glorious day of the Lord.
21 And everyone who calls
on the name of the Lord (V) will be saved.’ [c] (W)

22 “Fellow Israelites, listen to this: Jesus of Nazareth (X) was a man accredited by God to you by miracles, wonders and signs, (Y) which God did among you through him, (Z) as you yourselves know. 23 This man was handed over to you by God’s deliberate plan and foreknowledge (AA) and you, with the help of wicked men, [d] put him to death by nailing him to the cross. (AB) 24 But God raised him from the dead, (AC) freeing him from the agony of death, because it was impossible for death to keep its hold on him. (AD) 25 David said about him:

“‘I saw the Lord always before me.
Because he is at my right hand,
I will not be shaken.
26 Therefore my heart is glad and my tongue rejoices
my body also will rest in hope,
27 because you will not abandon me to the realm of the dead,
you will not let your holy one see decay. (AE)
28 You have made known to me the paths of life
you will fill me with joy in your presence.’ [e] (AF)

29 “Fellow Israelites, (AG) I can tell you confidently that the patriarch (AH) David died and was buried, (AI) and his tomb is here (AJ) to this day. 30 But he was a prophet and knew that God had promised him on oath that he would place one of his descendants on his throne. (AK) 31 Seeing what was to come, he spoke of the resurrection of the Messiah, that he was not abandoned to the realm of the dead, nor did his body see decay. (AL) 32 God has raised this Jesus to life, (AM) and we are all witnesses (AN) of it. 33 Exalted (AO) to the right hand of God, (AP) he has received from the Father (AQ) the promised Holy Spirit (AR) and has poured out (AS) what you now see and hear. 34 For David did not ascend to heaven, and yet he said,

“‘The Lord said to my Lord:
“Sit at my right hand
35 until I make your enemies
a footstool for your feet.”’ [f] (AT)

36 “Therefore let all Israel be assured of this: God has made this Jesus, whom you crucified, both Lord (AU) and Messiah.” (AV)

37 When the people heard this, they were cut to the heart and said to Peter and the other apostles, “Brothers, what shall we do?” (AW)

38 Peter replied, “Repent and be baptized, (AX) every one of you, in the name of Jesus Christ for the forgiveness of your sins. (AY) And you will receive the gift of the Holy Spirit. (AZ) 39 The promise is for you and your children (BA) and for all who are far off (BB) —for all whom the Lord our God will call.”

40 With many other words he warned them and he pleaded with them, “Save yourselves from this corrupt generation.” (BC) 41 Those who accepted his message were baptized, and about three thousand were added to their number (BD) that day.

The Fellowship of the Believers

42 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching (BE) and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread (BF) and to prayer. (BG) 43 Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. (BH) 44 All the believers were together and had everything in common. (BI) 45 They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. (BJ) 46 Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. (BK) They broke bread (BL) in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, 47 praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. (BM) And the Lord added to their number (BN) daily those who were being saved.

Chapter 2

2 But there were also false prophets (A) among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you. (B) They will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the sovereign Lord (C) who bought them (D) —bringing swift destruction on themselves. 2 Many will follow their depraved conduct (E) and will bring the way of truth into disrepute. 3 In their greed (F) these teachers will exploit you (G) with fabricated stories. Their condemnation has long been hanging over them, and their destruction has not been sleeping.

4 For if God did not spare angels when they sinned, (H) but sent them to hell, [a] putting them in chains of darkness [b] to be held for judgment (I) 5 if he did not spare the ancient world (J) when he brought the flood on its ungodly people, (K) but protected Noah, a preacher of righteousness, and seven others (L) 6 if he condemned the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah by burning them to ashes, (M) and made them an example (N) of what is going to happen to the ungodly (O) 7 and if he rescued Lot, (P) a righteous man, who was distressed by the depraved conduct of the lawless (Q) 8 (for that righteous man, (R) living among them day after day, was tormented in his righteous soul by the lawless deeds he saw and heard)— 9 if this is so, then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from trials (S) and to hold the unrighteous for punishment on the day of judgment. (T) 10 This is especially true of those who follow the corrupt desire (U) of the flesh [c] and despise authority.

Bold and arrogant, they are not afraid to heap abuse on celestial beings (V) 11 yet even angels, although they are stronger and more powerful, do not heap abuse on such beings when bringing judgment on them from [d] the Lord. (W) 12 But these people blaspheme in matters they do not understand. They are like unreasoning animals, creatures of instinct, born only to be caught and destroyed, and like animals they too will perish. (X)

13 They will be paid back with harm for the harm they have done. Their idea of pleasure is to carouse in broad daylight. (Y) They are blots and blemishes, reveling in their pleasures while they feast with you. [e] (Z) 14 With eyes full of adultery, they never stop sinning they seduce (AA) the unstable (AB) they are experts in greed (AC) —an accursed brood! (AD) 15 They have left the straight way and wandered off to follow the way of Balaam (AE) son of Bezer, [f] who loved the wages of wickedness. 16 But he was rebuked for his wrongdoing by a donkey—an animal without speech—who spoke with a human voice and restrained the prophet’s madness. (AF)

17 These people are springs without water (AG) and mists driven by a storm. Blackest darkness is reserved for them. (AH) 18 For they mouth empty, boastful words (AI) and, by appealing to the lustful desires of the flesh, they entice people who are just escaping (AJ) from those who live in error. 19 They promise them freedom, while they themselves are slaves of depravity—for “people are slaves to whatever has mastered them.” (AK) 20 If they have escaped the corruption of the world by knowing (AL) our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ (AM) and are again entangled in it and are overcome, they are worse off at the end than they were at the beginning. (AN) 21 It would have been better for them not to have known the way of righteousness, than to have known it and then to turn their backs on the sacred command that was passed on to them. (AO) 22 Of them the proverbs are true: “A dog returns to its vomit,” [g] (AP) and, “A sow that is washed returns to her wallowing in the mud.”


In 2016, It has returned to Derry, Maine and is killing children again. The only member of the Losers Club currently in the town, Mike Hanlon, calls the other members, Bill Denbrough, Ben Hanscom, Beverly Marsh, Richie Tozier, Eddie Kaspbrak, and Stanley Uris to honor the promise they made 27 years ago to kill It if it came back. All of them travel back with hazy memories except for Stan, who kills himself out of his fear of the creature. At a restaurant, Mike refreshes the Losers with memories before It torments them with hallucinations and Stan's suicide. Richie and Eddie decide to leave until Beverly reveals that she has had psychic visions of their deaths should they fail to fulfill their promise. Mike shows Bill, via a drug-induced vision, that the Native American "Ritual of Chüd" can stop It for good.

Mike explains that the ritual requires items from their past to be sacrificed. The members' searches of these involve traumatizing encounters with It, mostly its main form of Pennywise the Dancing Clown one of these involves Pennywise taunting Richie about his sexuality, and another prompts Eddie to defend himself and for It to shrink and flee. Henry Bowers, whom It frees from a mental institution Henry was sent to after being arrested for murdering his father, also hunts the Losers. He attacks Eddie at the Losers' hotel, and then Mike at the library, but Richie kills him. The Losers rejoin Bill, who just failed to save a young boy named Dean from being killed by It, at the Neibolt House, talking him out of facing It alone.

After saving Richie, Ben, and Beverly from It, the group descends into a cavern beneath the sewers and perform the ritual in the remains of the meteor that brought It to Earth. The ritual traps the Deadlights, It's true form, in a sealing jar, but It emerges from the jar as a giant red balloon, which bursts, revealing It as a Pennywise-spider hybrid. Pennywise pressures Mike into revealing that It killed the Natives originally performing the ritual because their fears overtook them, a fact Mike had hidden. It attacks the Losers and places Bill, Ben, and Beverly in nightmarish hallucinations, which they escape once Bill releases his guilt over It's murder of his younger brother Georgie, and Beverly realizes Ben was the one who wrote a love letter to her when they originally encountered It. Mike stands up to Pennywise, only to almost get eaten, but Richie manages to distract It, getting caught in It's Deadlights. Eddie saves him, but is fatally impaled. After Eddie explains how he made It feel small earlier, the Losers mock Pennywise, calling It various names and insults and causing It to shrink. Mike rips out It's heart, which he and the Losers crush, finally killing It. The Losers are forced to leave Eddie, who died from his injuries, when It's cavern implodes, destroying the Neibolt House.

The remaining Losers return to their old swimming area and wash off from their confrontation with It, and join hands to comfort Richie as he mourns for Eddie. It's demise has also caused the scars on their hands to disappear. After the Losers part ways, Ben and Beverly get married, Richie returns to the kissing bridge where he had once carved his and Eddie's initials, Mike decides to move out of Derry and start a new life, and Bill begins writing his new story before receiving a call from Mike as he leaves Derry, learning that Stan sent them all posthumous letters. The letters reveal because Stan was too scared to face It, his suicide was intended to strengthen his friends against It. He asks the remaining Losers to "live life to the fullest potential."

    as Beverly "Bev" Marsh: The only female member of the Losers Club, who was abused physically and sexually by her father and was bullied at school over false rumors of promiscuity. As an adult, Beverly has become a successful fashion designer in New York City while enduring an abusive marriage to Tom Rogan.

    Other forms of It include Joan Gregson as Mrs. Kersh, an apparently sweet and gentle elderly woman, actually a monster who lives in Beverly's childhood home Javier Botet as Hobo, a leper who encountered Eddie at the 29 Neibolt Street house, and also as The Witch, the monstrous form of Mrs. Kersh Jackson Robert Scott as Georgie Denbrough, Bill's deceased younger brother and Owen Teague as Patrick Hockstetter, a young hoodlum who was killed by Pennywise in the sewers in 1989. It also briefly appears without clown makeup, as his alias Bob Gray (also Skarsgård).

    Additionally, Teach Grant portrays Henry Bowers, [4] who terrorized the Losers Club in the summer of 1989 before he was incarcerated for killing his father while under It's influence. Nicholas Hamilton reprises his role as the young Henry Bowers. Molly Atkinson reprises her role as Sonia, Eddie's Munchausen syndrome by proxy-stricken mother, and also plays Eddie's wife Myra, who is very similar to Sonia. Xavier Dolan and Taylor Frey appear as Adrian Mellon [5] and Don Hagarty, a gay couple who are attacked by a group of youths during a carnival before Mellon is killed by It, while Jake Weary appears as Webby, the leader of the youth gang who attacks Adrian and Don. Luke Roessler portrays Dean, a young boy who meets Bill near the storm drain where Georgie was killed in 1988, and is later killed by It at the Funland, while Ryan Kiera Armstrong appears as Victoria Fuller, a little girl with a large birthmark on her cheek, who is killed by It after he lures her to under the bleachers at a baseball game. Jess Weixler portrays Bill's wife Audra Denbrough (née Phillips), Will Beinbrink portrays Beverly's abusive husband Tom Rogan, [5] and Martha Girvin appears as Stanley's wife Patty. Stephen Bogaert, Jake Sim, Logan Thompson, Joe Bostick and Megan Charpentier reprise their roles from the first film as Beverly's abusive father Alvin Marsh, Henry's friends Reginald "Belch" Huggins and Victor "Vic" Criss, pharmacist Mr. Keene, and Keene's daughter Gretta, respectively. Juno Rinaldi portrays the adult Gretta. Katie Lunman reprises her role as Betty Ripsom in a vocal capacity, in addition to portraying a second character, Chris Unwin, one of Webby's friends who participates in assaulting Adrian and Don.

    Stephen King cameos as a pawn shop owner, the film's director Andy Muschietti cameos as a customer at the pharmacy, and filmmaker Peter Bogdanovich cameos as himself, the director of the film based on Bill's novel. Brandon Crane, who portrayed the young Ben in the 1990 miniseries adaptation, also makes a cameo appearance as a board member of Hanscom Architecture. [6] Filmmaker Guillermo del Toro was sought for a cameo as the janitor that Ben encounters when fleeing from Pennywise. Despite nearly securing del Toro, he was not included in the final film. [7] King's son and fellow author Joe Hill was originally envisioned to cameo as the younger version of the pawn shop owner in a flashback scene with young Bill and Beverly, but the scene was cut from the final draft of the screenplay. [8] Maturin the Turtle was reported to be in the film. [9] This did not happen, although a golden turtle statue can be seen in the adult Ben's home and a smaller one can be seen in a classroom scene. [10]

    Development Edit

    On February 16, 2016, producer Roy Lee, in an interview with Collider, mentioned a second It film, remarking, "[Dauberman] wrote the most recent draft working with [Muschietti], so it's being envisioned as two movies." [11]

    On July 19, 2017, Muschietti revealed that production was set to begin in the spring of 2018, adding, [12] [13] "We'll probably have a script for the second part in January [2018]. Ideally, we would start prep in March. Part one is only about the kids. Part two is about these characters 27 years later as adults, with flashbacks to 1989 when they were kids." [14]

    On July 21, 2017, Muschietti spoke of looking forward to having a dialogue in the second film that does not exist within the first, stating, ". it seems like we're going to do it. It's the second half, it's not a sequel. It's the second half and it's very connected to the first one." [15] [16] Muschietti stated that two cut scenes from the first film will possibly be included in the second, one of which being the fire at the Black Spot from the book. [17]

    On September 25, 2017, New Line Cinema announced that the sequel would be released on September 6, 2019, [18] with Gary Dauberman [19] [20] writing the script and Andy Muschietti returning to direct. [21] Dauberman would later leave the project to write and direct Annabelle Comes Home, while Jason Fuchs was brought in as his replacement. [22]

    Casting Edit

    In an interview in July 2017, the child actors from the first film were asked which actors they would choose to play them in the sequel. Sophia Lillis chose Jessica Chastain and Finn Wolfhard chose Bill Hader, [23] both of whom would end up cast in those roles.

    In September 2017, Muschietti and his sister mentioned that Chastain would be their top choice to play the adult version of Beverly Marsh. [24] In November 2017, Chastain herself expressed interest in the project. [25] Finally, in February 2018, Chastain officially joined the cast to portray the character, [26] making the film her second collaboration with Muschietti after Mama. By April 2018, Hader and James McAvoy were in talks to join the cast to play adult versions of Richie Tozier and Bill Denbrough, respectively. [27] In May 2018, James Ransone, Jay Ryan, and Andy Bean joined the cast to portray adult versions of Eddie Kaspbrak, Ben Hanscom, and Stanley Uris, respectively. [28] [29] [30]

    In June 2018, Isaiah Mustafa joined as the adult version of Mike Hanlon, while Xavier Dolan and Will Beinbrink were also cast as Adrian Mellon and Tom Rogan, respectively. [31] [5] Later, Teach Grant was cast to play the adult version of Henry Bowers, played by Nicholas Hamilton, and Jess Weixler was also cast, as Bill's wife. [4] This is the second collaboration between McAvoy, Chastain, Hader, Weixler and Beinbrink after The Disappearance of Eleanor Rigby. In September 2018, it was revealed that Javier Botet would appear in the film. He played It forms, Hobo the Leper and The Witch. [32]

    Filming Edit

    Principal photography on the film began on June 19, 2018, [33] at Pinewood Toronto Studios. The sewer system set was constructed at Pinewood, [34] while the actual grate is located in North York. [35] Much of the location work was done in and around Port Hope during summer 2018, as the town stood in for the fictional Derry, Maine signs and decor were changed as necessary. [36] The Town Hall exterior was used as the Derry Library. [35] Some exterior shots of the hotel were filmed at the town's Hotel Carlyle. [37] [38]

    Some interiors were filmed at a 1902 mansion in Toronto, Cranfield House, while homes in the city, and in Oshawa and Pickering, were used as exteriors. An old mansion set was built for exteriors of the Pennywise home, and later burned, in Oshawa. [35] The synagogue in the film was actually the Congregation Knesseth Israel in Toronto. Derry High School exteriors were filmed at the Mount Mary Retreat Centre in Ancaster, Ontario. Other locations used by the production included the Elora Quarry Conservation Area, the Scottish Rite in Hamilton, Ontario, Audley Park in Ajax, Ontario, Rouge Park in Scarborough, Toronto (as The Barrens) and The Mandarin Restaurant in Mississauga. [39] [35]

    Filming concluded in early November 2018 after 86 days of production. [40]

    Post-production Edit

    The visual effects were provided by Atomic Arts and Method Studios. They were supervised by Brooke Lyndon-Stanford, Justin Cornish, and Josh Simmonds, as well as Nicholas Brooks as the Production Supervisor, with help from Cubica, Lola VFX, Make VFX, Rodeo FX and Soho VFX. [41] The teenage actors were digitally de-aged to match their respective ages during filming of the first film. [42]

    Music Edit

    On March 29, 2019, it was announced that English composer, conductor, and pianist Benjamin Wallfisch, who had previously composed original scores for films such as Hidden Figures, Blade Runner 2049, and Shazam!, [ citation needed ] was set to compose the soundtrack for It Chapter Two, [43] marking this as the second time the composer has worked with director Andy Muschietti, after previously composing the soundtrack for the first film It (2017). [ citation needed ] The soundtrack features 45 original tracks that were released on August 30, 2019. [44]

    According to Wallfisch, the score for It Chapter Two features a larger orchestra and choir than previously and draws on both themes from the first film's soundtrack with "more scale and ambition — to reflect the scope of the film", as well as creates new themes to reflect the characters development over the past 27 years.

    It Chapter Two had its world premiere at the Regency Village Theater in Los Angeles, California on August 26, 2019, and was theatrically released in the United States on September 6, 2019 by Warner Bros. Pictures. [46]

    Marketing Edit

    The first image of the adult versions of the Losers' Club was released on July 2, 2018, as principal photography began. The first teaser poster of the film was released on October 31, 2018. Footage from the film was shown at the CinemaCon on April 2, 2019. A second teaser poster was released on May 9, 2019, along with a teaser trailer. [47] On July 17, 2019, the second poster and the final trailer were released at the San Diego Comic-Con. [48] [49] The studio spent a total of $95 million promoting the film worldwide. [50]

    Home media Edit

    The film was released in a digital format on November 19, 2019. A release on DVD, Blu-ray, and 4K was on December 10, 2019 in the United States. [51]

    Box office Edit

    It Chapter Two grossed $211.6 million in the United States and Canada, and $261.5 million in other territories, for a worldwide total of $473.1 million. [3] Deadline Hollywood calculated the net profit of the film to be $169 million, when factoring together all expenses and revenues. [50]

    In the United States and Canada, the film was projected to gross $90–100 million from 4,570 theaters in its opening weekend, and the week of its release broke Fandango's record for most advance tickets sold by a horror film. [52] The film made $37.4 million in its first day, including $10.5 million from Thursday night previews, the second-highest total for both a September opening and horror film, behind the first film's $13.5 million. It went on to debut to $91 million, also the second-best ever for a horror film and a September release, while being over $30 million less than the first film. The lower debut was attributed to a more mixed critical reception, as well as the nearly three-hour runtime, which exhibitors said curbed business. [2] It made $40.7 million in its second weekend, retaining the top spot, before making $17.2 million in its third weekend and being dethroned by newcomer Downton Abbey. [53] [54]

    Critical response Edit

    On Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 62% based on 375 reviews, with an average rating of 6.1/10. The website's critical consensus reads, "It Chapter Two proves bigger doesn't always mean scarier for horror sequels, but a fine cast and faithful approach to the source material keep this follow-up afloat." [55] On Metacritic, which uses a weighted average, the film has a score of 58 out of 100, based on 52 critics, indicating "mixed or average reviews." [56] Audiences polled by CinemaScore gave the film an average grade of "B+" on an A+ to F scale, the same as the first film, while those at PostTrak gave it an overall positive score of 76% and a 56% "definite recommend." [2]

    Writing for the Chicago Sun-Times, Richard Roeper praised the production design and cast, but said the film was not as scary as the first, specifying, "For all of Muschietti's visual flourishes and with the greatly talented Bill Skarsgård again delivering a madcap, disturbingly effective, all-in performance as the dreaded Pennywise, It Chapter Two had a relatively muted impact on me." [57] Variety ' s Peter DeBruge wrote, "The clown is back, and the kids have grown up in part two of Stephen King's monster novel, which inspires an overlong, but suitably scary sequel," [58] while Christy Lemire of gave the film two-and-a-half out of four stars, stating that "It Chapter Two can be a sprawling, unwieldy mess—overlong, overstuffed and full of frustrating detours—but its casting is so spot-on, its actors have such great chemistry and its monster effects are so deliriously ghoulish that the film keeps you hooked." [59]

    Katie Rife of The A.V. Club gave the film a grade of "C+," praising Hader's performance but summarizing, "What a shame, then to build this beautiful stage, populate it with talented actors and high-level craftspeople, and then drop them all through the trap door of plodding humor and scattershot plotting." [60] Aja Romano of Vox called the film "well-made and entertaining," but criticized what she termed the "lack of chemistry" between members of the adult cast, and wrote that the film "muddles [the] message" of the novel on which it is based. [61] Rich Juzwiak of Jezebel gave the film a negative review, calling it "meandering" and "a movie that has no sense of its rules." [62]

    In September 2019, Skarsgård spoke of the possibility of a third installment, saying, "It would have to be the right type of approach to it. The book ends where the second movie ends, so that is the final chapter of this story. There is this interesting aspect of going back in time before all this happened. There might be a story there that might be worth exploring. Obviously that would be a story that's not in the book, it would be a freestanding story, but obviously within the same universe. So, there might be something interesting out of it. I think it would be fun." [67]

    Two months later, Dauberman discussed in an interview of the possibility of a third film, saying, "I do think it's possible. Anything in the Stephen King Universe interests me, but there's only so much of the story we could tell in the two movies. There are definitely elements of the novel you could expand on and make its own movie. It's just a question of whether or not people want to see it. I do think It was on this planet for a very, very, very long time and that's a lot of bloodshed and a lot of stories to tell and I think you could do that for sure." [68]



    Prashanth Neel, worked on the film's screenplay after the release of Ugramm (2014), and development of the film began in early 2015. [18] However, he decided to split the film in two parts, as the narration of this story is in non-linear format, and the decision to split the film into two parts, also had to with the commercial prospects. In an interview with The Times of India, in October 2018, he added “The scale of the project is huge and we had a scope for a beginning, an interval and an end for both parts, so it made sense for us to release it as two parts”. As for the decision to make it as a multilingual, he says that it was because the film is based on a unique idea and has a universal theme. [19] In December 2020, Prashanth Neel confirmed that there is no third instalment in the KGF franchise. [20]

    Prashanth Neel decided to rope in composer Ravi Basrur [21] and cinematographer Bhuvan Gowda as a part of the technical crew for the second part of the film. [22] [23]

[24] Media rumours that Raveena Tandon would appear in the film started making rounds as early as February 2019. [25] A news report in The Times of India confirmed that Tandon will be seen in a "major role" in the film. [15] Despite Srinidhi becoming a breakout star, post the release of the predecessor, she rejected seven films, in order to start shoot for the film.

[45] The JMFC court has issued an injunction notice to the producer Kiragandur, also ordering to stall the shoot.

[47] The same day, the makers started shooting for the second schedule in Hyderabad. [48] [49] On 25 September 2019, Sanjay Dutt joined the sets of the film in Hyderabad.

[62] Prashanth Neel claimed that Sanjay Dutt had completed shooting for the film, with only dubbing for his portions, is pending, [63] after Sanjay Dutt was diagnosed with lung cancer, and left US for immediate treatment on 12 August 2020. [64]

    The film was resumed on 26 August 2020 at Bangalore post a gap of 5 months. [65] Malavika Avinash and Prakash Raj joined the sets on this schedule.

[69] Sanjay Dutt confirmed that he will join the shooting of the film on November, [70] although he resumed the shooting only in December.

[74] On 20 December 2020, the makers announced that the climax scene of the film was completed. [75] [76] The team planned to complete the shooting of the film within January 2021. [77]

    The film score has been composed by Ravi Basrur.

    As a part of the promotional activities, a fictional newspaper named KGF Times was designed based on vintage newspapers. [78] Starting from 4 to 10 January 2021, the makers unveiled the new editions of the film through their social media accounts. [79]

    The teaser trailer was initially scheduled to release on 8 January 2021, coinciding with Yash's birthday. [80] [81] However, after few cuts from the teaser leaked through the internet, [82] the makers unveiled the teaser on 7 January, ahead of the official launch. [83] Instead of releasing the teaser in five languages, the makers released it as a single teaser featuring English dialogues. [84] It became the most viewed and most liked teaser. [85] [86]


    K.G.F: Chapter 2 was originally scheduled to release in theatres on 23 October 2020, [87] coinciding with Dusshera festival. [88] But the release was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic in India. [89] On 29 January 2021, the filmmakers announced [90] that it will be released theatrically on 16 July 2021 [91] in Kannada and dubbed versions of Telugu, Hindi, Tamil and Malayalam languages. [92] However, it was postponed again for the same reason. [93]

    Meanwhile, The Seven had successfully destroyed The Zero Point, causing The Blackout and sent players to a new island. The black hole revealed the shape of the new map throughout its stay and teased the Eye Land. On the new island, things are different. There are two sides, A.L.T.E.R. and E.G.O. The two are military agencies trying to battle each other.
