The School of Good and Evil Release Date: Is Sophie a Villain in This Movie?
In the upcoming Netflix film The School for Good and Evil, Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington play educators tasked with shaping the next generation of heroes and villains.
The film follows best friends Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sophia Wylie), who are placed on opposite sides of the school (based on Soman Chainani’s 2013 novel about a school where fairytale characters practice their art and figure out their moral compass).
The School for Good and Evil Release Date
According to netflix.com/ In 2022, on October 19th, The School for Good and Evil will premiere on Netflix. The film’s initial release date was supposed to be around the holidays of 2017.
Chainani announced the film’s 2022 release date in December 2020, with a later release in the second half of that year.
The September 2022 release date was revealed in June of that year. The release date of October 21, 2022, was revealed by Netflix in late July 2022. In late August, the drop date was pushed up by two days.
The Plot of the School for Good and Evil
Two children, one nice and one wicked are kidnapped every four years and sent to the institution to learn the skills necessary to act in fairy tales.
Sophie and Agatha, the two newest students, are separated at the beginning of the film, with Sophie being transferred to the School for Evil and Agatha being quickly whisked away to the School for Good.
For the girls to attend schools and pursue the goals to which they are entitled, “only the kiss of real love” will do it, as teased by Netflix.
But when a shadowy entity with unknown ties to Sophie reappears and threatens to ruin the school and the world beyond, the only route to a happy ending is to survive their real-life fairytale first.
Feig explained the film’s central theme to Entertainment Weekly, saying, “[I]t’s basically just saying, ‘Look, we’re all people, we’re all human.
Later, he elaborated by saying “Even Agatha admits that at one point in the film: “You’re not bad, you’re simply human.” In my opinion, this is a vital message that should be communicated in a really original and engaging manner. Even though it’s all set in a fantastical realm, it has a lot of relevance to real life.”
On October 19th, Netflix will add The School for Good and Evil to its library. See what else is on with our TV Guide, or peruse our lists of the top Netflix shows and best Netflix movies.

The School for Good and Evil Trailer
An official teaser has arrived, offering moviegoers their first look at the film’s two opposing visual styles (good and evil).
As Charlize Theron’s character explains, “very sometimes a very lucky candidate from the outside is selected for entrance to this hallowed school,” we show Sophie and Agatha being kidnapped and brought into the institution by a stamp, a giant skeletal bird trained by the School Master.
We see what appear to be two separate campuses within the institution: the School for Good and the School for Evil, connected by a bridge that suggests the line between them is not as obvious as it first appears.
