Vingt-sept ans plus tard, Bill Denbrough et ses amis reviennent à Derry suite à l'appel de Mike. Ils vont devoir à nouveau combattre le sinistre clown « Ça », qui s'est réveillé et recommence à se nourrir d'enfants. Les souvenirs resurgissent et le Club se souvient, qu'il y'a vingt-sept ans, la divinité Maturin (qui fait contraste à Grippe-Sou), manipulait les Ratés (bien qu'eux pensaient agir de leurs plein gré) en se servant de leur union pour détruire « Ça ». Lorsqu'ils reviennent à Derry, ils découvrent la véritable histoire de « Ça » et comptent bien l'achever, sous l’œil vaillant de Maturin.

The film is a celebration of the casting profession, highlighting its previously unsung role in film history while also serving as an elegy to the lost era of the New Hollywood. It focuses on casting pioneer Marion Dougherty, an iconoclast whose exquisite taste, tenacity and gut instincts brought a new kind of actor to the screen that would mark the end of the old studio system and help to usher in this revolutionary new period. The film draws a line through the last half century to show us the profession’s evolution from studio system type-casting to the rise of large ensemble films populated with unique and diverse casts.
