Netflix have released the official trailer for the upcoming film adaptation of Soman Chainani’s young-adult novel The School For Good And Evil.
The official synopsis for the film is as follows:
Best friends Sophie and Agatha are about to discover where fairy-tale legacies go to school: the School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. With her princess ambitions, Sophie knows she’ll be picked for the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella and Snow White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and wicked cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil. Yet soon the girls find their fortunes reversed: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, Agatha into the School for Good. But what if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are? Their friendship will be put to the test in this thrilling and comedic story where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.
The film is written by David Magee and Laura Solon, directed by Paul Feig, and stars Sofia Wylie, Sophia Anne Caruso, Kerry Washington, Charlize Theron, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, Peter Serafinowicz, Earl Cave, Freya Theodora, Demi Isaac Oviawe, Kaitlyn Akinpelumi, Mark Heap, Briony Scarlett, Chinenye Ezeudu, Emma Lau, Ben Kingsley, Patti LuPone, Rob Delaney and Rachel Bloom.
