ConanCon features cast of 'It: Chapter Two' as O'Brien hosts James McAvoy, Jessica Chastain and Bill Hader
If you're a fan of the Pennywise nightmare 'It' and of Conan O'Brien, the late-night talk show host has just the perfect gift for you! This year's ConanCon special, inspired by the San Diego Comic-Con (SDCC) just had their first guests and it was the jubilant cast of 'It: Chapter Two'.
The entire cast of the sequel to the film adaptation of Stephen King's popular thriller 'It' decided to indulge in some quipping and teasing at O'Brien's talk show just before heading to the film's official panel for SDCC. If you're looking for the same old kids from the first film, you'll be slightly disappointed because they are all grown up now as they go back to their roots and encounter fresh horrors in the sequel.
Their older versions, played by the likes of Jessica Chastain, James McAvoy, and Bill Hader, attended the ConanCon chat to talk about the upcoming film which has been the highlight for fans of the genre for a while. Jay Ryan, James Ransone, Isiah Mustafa, and Andy Bean were in attendance too.

Fans took to social media to talk about the star-studded gathering at O'brien's talk show focusing on the Comic-Con. One Twitter user shared about the talk show, tweeting: "Saw the 'It Chapter 2' cast at #conancon. I couldn't decide if I was more excited about seeing #jamesmcavoy or the old spice guy. It's beginning to feel like #SDCC #ITChapter2 #SDCC2019."
AnotherTwitter account enthused about the same, alerting followers: "We just saw the cast of IT: CHAPTER 2! Tune in to Conan tonight at 8pm PST/11pm EST on TBS to watch the spectacular debut of #ConanCon 2019 Lots of great bits you don't want to miss!"
Team Coco, a shortened name used in the talk-show special's official Twitter account, also gave out merchandise which was a pop figure of O'Brien dressed as the 'It' franchise's extremely terrifying, infamous element of horror - Pennywise, the clown, which is played by Bill Skarsgard in the new films.
'It: Chapter Two' releases this year on September 5. Catch the cast (hopefully!) dropping teasers and talking about the film on Wednesday, July 17, at 8 pm PT and 11 pm ET only on TBS.
