Information on the location
Derry is a fictional town and a part of Stephen King's fictional Maine topography. Derry has served as the setting for a number of his novels, novellas, and short stories.
Thousands of years before any people settled in what would become Derry, the ancient alien/eldritch monster It crashed into the land on a ball of fire from the void of the Macroverse. After thousands of years of slumbering, humans eventually settled into the land and established the town of Derry in the early 18th century. During this time, it finally awoke and began a cycle of feeding in which it would capture and devour the children, their fear providing it with the nourishment that it needs.
After three years of feeding, It would return to sleep for a period of twenty seven years. As time went on, it gained a degree of control over Derry, influencing the town's residents so that they interfered with its feedings as little as possible, even being able to manipulate them into helping it, if needed. Although investigations were always made into these murders and kidnappings, Derry's authorities would either fail to turn up any leads, wrongfully accuse someone of committing these crimes, or find a convenient scapegoat (such as Henry Bowers) that fits the description. Once it returns to its slumber and the murder and kidnappings stop, the memories of them seemed to gradually fade away. This cycle was ultimately put to a stop when the Losers' Club was apparently able to kill it while it was in physical form during the second Ritual of Chüd. After this, the town was seemingly free of its control, albeit at a great cost, as much of the town was destroyed upon its demise. However, there is evidence that it survived, or possibly members of its brood.
Appearance in the rap battle
This is the location where Pennywise rapped in. It first appears in the sewer, with a paper toy boat similar to Georgie's boat in the TV miniseries and the movie. It then changed to the front of the Well House. The Well House later appears again in the beginning of its third verse.
The cartoonish cardboard look of the location, as well as the rest of Pennywise's background, could be a recreation of the style from Pennywise's sewer base in the 2017 adaptation.
- Instead of Georgie's name, the paper boat has "SS Jokie" written on it.
