That’s a frame from the original, Eric. You know that.
I would if I'd ever been able to sit through the entire movie cover to cover.
Or thought for a moment that the sequel would look any different.

As for the feet (is that what it was?), I can't tell sex from sneakers, but I'd guess guest star.

The frame has Michael Jordan. Common sense would indicate the original...

Xactly.

The shoes in the new frame are Harley Quinn's, so...

So--if you can believe (at your own risk) a secondhand Tweeted insider posting from 4chan--Warner's masturbatory self-franchising "Team Warner" plot, Harley, Pennywise and Hagrid included, would appear to be true:

Normally I wouldn't on that pedigree, but coming from two different sources, it's starting to look pretty darn suspicious.
I'd ask what JK or Stephen King thought of Harry Potter and It characters now being franchiseable "Warner" properties, but I have a hunch how the former would answer. :roll:

(Remember when Michael Eisner wanted Fantasia 2000's "Pomp & Circumstance" sequence to be a procession of classic Disney characters, and outraged surviving original animators like Marc Davis and Ward Kimball wanted no part of it, claiming it was nothing but a "marketing commercial"?
This IS Warner's version of that movie, feature length. And now it's Bugs fans and anti-Warner-ites' turn to be outraged.)

I’m not totally buying that that’s supposed to be Hagrid, though. He doesn’t have the size...?
...You're suggesting he's Josh Gad from "Artemis Fowl"?? :lol:

A Lola redesign to get rid of her boobies!? That just sounds bonkers.

"During a trip to the Warner Bros. studio, NBA Superstar LeBron James and his son accidently get trapped within a world that contains all of Warner Bros.' stories and characters, under the control of a malfunctioning, all-powerful force named Al G (Don Cheadle). With the help of Bugs Bunny, LeBron must navigate through a never-before-imagined world filled with iconic movie scenes and characters as they re-assemble the Looney Tunes to rescue his lost son. Now to get back home, Lebron and the Tune Squad have to unravel Al G's mysterious plan and win an epic basketball game against digital gamified super-versions of the NBA and WNBA's biggest stars as the entire world watches."

Agreed. Give us the NASCAR Jam already. ;)

Remember when Brendan Fraser jumps in a NASCAR with Daffy at the end of "LT: Back in Action"?
A dozen or so studio meetings and rewrites later, that was all that was left of it...

Thing is, does anyone even CARE that Warner's plugging "It" after Chapter Two fumbled the ball?
It's never a good idea for Warner to rely on corporate self-plugs for too long, and if we're getting Potter/Fantastic Beasts plugs in it, that's another reason.

The original played with the idea of traveling into the WB world, but it was such a brief bit before we went back to ball'n. I really think this has potential to be neat.

Indeed, hence why I lamented that we had to have the basketball it it. I just want a fun movie!

I’d have said Ready Player Two, but that’s been taken! ;)

So how about Space Jam: Ready Player Toon...? 8) 8) 8)
