It’s a happy ending after all.
If you’ve watched “IT”, you probably already know that Georgie is one of Pennywise’s first victims in the movie.
Director Andrés Muschietti created a nightmare when he decided to let Bill Skarsgard play Pennywise in the film but in this deleted scene, it gives Georgie a happy ending.
It looks like something out of a Scary Movie spoof which shows a missed opportunity for Pennywise.
The people who made IT (2017) actually made a joke version of the Pennywise/Georgie scene. I don't think I've ever heard of a film doing a joke version of a scene and actually keeping it as a deleted scene. pic.twitter.com/RQhoHhFwiU

Bill told his older brother Alexander on Interview Magazine he felt “horrible” scaring children on set.
“At one point, they set up this entire scene, and these kids come in, and none of them have seen me yet. Their parents have brought them in – these little extras, right?”
He added, “And then I come out as Pennywise, and these kids – young, normal kids – I saw the reaction that they had. Some of them were really intrigued, but some couldn’t look at me, and some were shaking.”
“This one kid started crying. He started to cry and the director yelled, ‘Action!’ And when they say ‘Action!’ I am completely in character.”
“So some of these kids got terrified and started to cry in the middle of the take, and then I realized, ‘Holy shit. What am I doing? What is this? This is horrible.'”
But Bill did apologize to the kids after, saying it was just “pretend.”
Maybe that’s why they kept a Scary Movie-like deleted scene, to show that Pennywise isn’t such a bad guy after all.
