We now have the official release date for Netflix’s upcoming film The School For Good and Evil, which stars Kerry Washington and Charlize Theron.
The Paul Feig film is based on the book of the same name by Soman Chainani and features Washington as a professor and Theron as the headmaster of a mystical school.
According to an official press release, the movie is set to premiere globally on Netflix on Oct. 21.
Here's an official synopsis of the upcoming film:
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.
'The School For Good and Evil' is produced by Joe Roth, Jeffery Kirschenbaum, Jane Startz, Paul Feig, Laura Fischer.
