What Will Be the Storyline of The School for Good and Evil?

A pair of 12-year-olds from the village of Gavaldon are kidnapped every four years on the evening of the eleventh day of the eleventh month and taken to the School for Good and Evil.

Sophie, a fair-haired beauty who dreams of being taken to the school and living happily ever after with an adoring prince, has such aspirations. However, Sophie’s best friend Agatha is the polar opposite; she is hideous, has dark hair, protruding bug eyes, and lives in a cemetery.

They are both ideal students for the school, so imagine their shock when, on the night of the kidnapping, they are both taken to the “wrong” institution. Sophie enrols at the Evil academy and becomes a “Never,” whereas Agatha enrols at the Good academy and becomes a “Ever.”

The School for Good and Evil Release Date

The official synopsis is as follows:

“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 golden-haired seamstress, dreams of escaping her dreary life to become a princess, while Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and offbeat mother, has the makings of a real witch.

One night under a blood red moon, a powerful force sweeps them away to the School for Good and Evil — where the true stories behind every great fairy tale begin. Yet something is amiss from the start: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, run by the glamourous 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 the Wicked Witch (Freya Parks), Captain Hook (Earl Cave), and 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 schools and destiny.

But when a dark and dangerous figure (Kit Young) with mysterious ties to Sophie reemerges and threatens to destroy the school and the world beyond entirely — the only way to a happy ending is to survive their real life fairytale first.”

Frequently Asked Questions

Has the Production Completed?

Some of the cast apparently finished filming in May 2021, and the rest of them did it by early July. By the month’s conclusion, we had shot our last scene and production was officially over.

Where Did the Shooting Take Place?

The majority of the shoot took place in Northern Ireland, which was convenient because many hundreds of extras and staff people who participated in the production lived in the area.

Will There Be Additional Film Adaptations of Books?

Considering how well received the books have been, we anticipate the 2022 film adaptation to do very well. The film’s box office success will determine whether or not a sequel is made. Netflix has the potential to turn another five novels into films if their current initiative is fruitful.
