A school that trains heroes but also villains
In this modern fairy tale, best friends Sophie and Agatha find themselves on opposite sides when they are forced into an enchanted school that trains heroes and villains to maintain the balance between good and evil. .
Inspired by the 2.5 million-selling literary saga written by Soman Chainani, the story of this new original focuses on the fate of Sophie and Agatha, two best friends, who are about to discover an establishment outside the common. The author was also delighted, in a recent press release, to see his novel brought to the screen:
“To see one of his books made into a Netflix movie by one of his favorite directors is both an honor and a dream come true. Paul Feig is a brilliant filmmaker who perfectly knows how to recreate universes. He is the ideal person for the many twists and turns that THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL has in store. I’m sure Paul Feig will turn it into a real fairy tale. »
A magical cast!
If the film looks magical, wait to discover the casting which is just as much! In effect, Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Michelle Yeoh and Laurence Fishburne will serve as deans, professors and directors of the school.
