Netflix on Tuesday released the first look at its anticipated adaptation of the YA fantasy novel The School for Good and Evil starring Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington. Based on the Soman Chainani novel, the film is directed by Paul Feig and also stars Sofia Wylie and Sophia Anne Caruso.
The trailer is brief, with most of it being narrated by Theron before unveiling what her and Washington’s characters look like. The final images feature Wylie and Caruso’s characters Agatha and Sophie, respectively, being kidnapped and taken to the school by some sort of flying creature.
A release date is still unknown for the film other than that it coming out sometime in the fall. Laurence Fishburne and Michelle Yeoh also star.
Check out the teaser trailer above that dropped today as part of Netflix’s Geeked Week.
The plot of the bestselling six-book series centers on Sophie and Agatha, best friends who discover where fairytale 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. What if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are?
The School For Good and Evil is the first book in Chainani’s series, which has sold more than 2.5 million copies and has been translated into 30 languages across six continents.
Finding Neverland scribe David Magee and Feig adapted the screenplay. Roth Kirschenbaum’s Joe Roth and Jeffrey Kirschenbaum are producing with Jane Startz and Feigco’s Feig and Laura Fischer. Stephen Jones, Zack Roth, Patricia Riggen, and Chainani are exec producers.
