“The School of Good and Evil” books follow two teenage girls living in a fairy tale world who are enrolled in the titular school, which is divided into two parts. One school trains would-be heroes, while the other educates villains-in-training. Princess Sophie appears to be a shoo-in for the school of good, while the witch Agatha appears to be material from the school of evil. Yet somehow, the girls’ invitations seem to be reciprocated, leading them to pursue adventures outside of their comfort zone with the help of frisky love interests, magical educators, and ones. others.
The Netflix adaptation of the series has a ton of star power behind it, especially when it comes to the cast of The School For Good and Evil teachers. “Scandal” star Kerry Washington plays Professor Dovey, while “Mad Max: Fury Road” star Charlize Theron is Lady Lesso. Meanwhile, ‘The Matrix’ actor Laurence Fishburne plays The School Master and Michelle Yeoh, who shone in this year’s ‘Everything Everywhere All At Once’, is Professor Anemone. I’m not saying this show wants to be an American “Harry Potter,” but I’m saying this cast seems designed to last more than one movie and hook adult viewers as well as kids.
Two promising actors landed the lead roles in the film. Sofia Wylie, who plays Gina in “High School Musical: The Musical – The Series,” plays Agatha. Sophia Anne Caruso, who played Lydia in Broadway’s “Beetlejuice,” takes on the role of Sophie. The pair didn’t appear in previews of the film that did appear in Netflix’s original 2022 film premiere in February, but they did offer a look at some of ‘Harry Potter’s’ totally different creatures and settings. . design for the movie.
