Netflix has released the teaser trailer for its upcoming film The School for Good and Evil, which stars Charlize Theron and Kerry Washington.
The 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.
Directed by Paul Feig, the film also stars Sophia Anne Caruso, Sofia Wylie, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Patti LuPone and Rachel Bloom.
Here's the official synopsis of the upcoming Netflix movie:
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 lover of fairy tales, dreams of escaping her ordinary village life, while Agatha, with her grim aesthetic, has the makings of a real witch. Then one night under a blood red moon, a powerful force sweeps them away to the School for Good and Evil — where the true story of every great fairy tale begins. Yet something is amiss from the start: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, run by the glamorous 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 Cinderella, Captain Hook, and the dashing son of 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 school. But when a dark and dangerous figure (Kit Young) with mysterious ties to Sophie reemerges and threatens to destroy the school and the rulebook entirely — the only way to a happy ending is to survive the fairytale first.
The film is produced by Joe Roth, Jeffrey Kirschenbaum, Jane Startz, Paul Feig, and Laura Fischer and is executive produced by Stephen Jones, Zack Roth, Chris Castaldi, Soman Chainani, and Patrician Riggen.
The film doesn’t have a release date but it is a part of Netflix’s summer slate.
