Check out the trailer and poster for THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD AND EVIL below!
Welcome to The School for Good and Evil, where every great fairytale begins. In the film, we meet best friends Sophie and Agatha. After being swept away to an enchanted school, the best friends find themselves on opposing sides of a modern fairy tale. Here, young heroes and villains are trained to protect the balance of good and evil.
In the village of Gavaldon, two misfits and best friends, Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sofia Wylie), share the unlikeliest of bonds. Sophie, a lover of fairy tales, dreams of escaping her ordinary village life, while Agatha, with her grim aesthetic, has the makings of a real witch. Then one night under a blood red moon, a powerful force sweeps them away to the School for Good and Evil — where the true story of every great fairy tale begins. Yet something is amiss from the start: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, run by the glamorous and acid-tongued Lady Lesso (Charlize Theron), and Agatha in the School for Good, overseen by the sunny and kind Professor Dovey (Kerry Washington). As if navigating classes with the offspring of Cinderella, Captain Hook, and the dashing son of King Arthur (Jamie Flatters) wasn’t hard enough, according to the Schoolmaster (Laurence Fishburne), only true love’s kiss can change the rules and send the girls to their rightful school. But when a dark and dangerous figure (Kit Young) with mysterious ties to Sophie reemerges and threatens to destroy the school and the rulebook entirely — the only way to a happy ending is to survive the fairytale first.
The story is based on the international best-selling book series by Soman Chainani and has a powerhouse cast! Sofia Wylie (HSMTMTS) and Sophia Ann Caruso (Evil) play Agatha and Sophia. Playing Professors at the school are Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, and Michelle Yeoh. Filling in the rest of the cast are Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Patti LuPone, and Rachel Bloom.
