Adventure heroes and villains, prepare to strut your stuff as Weekly entertainment rolls out a gallery of The school for better or for worse Pictures.
Based on the epic international best-selling fantasy novel series by Soman Chainani, The school for better or for worse stars Kerry Washington, Charlize TheronSophia Anne Caruso, Sofia Wylie, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Jamie Flatters, Kit Young, Peter Serafinowicz, Rob Delaney, Mark Heap, Patti LuPone and Rachel Bloom.
Here is the official synopsis for The school for better or for worse:
In the village of Gavaldon, two misfits and best friends, Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sofia Wylie), share an unlikely bond. Sophie, an adventure lover, dreams of escaping her ordinary village life, while Agatha, with her gloomy aesthetic, has the opportunity to become a real witch. Then one night, under a blood red moon, a powerful force sweeps them away to the School of Good and Evil – where the true story of every great adventure begins. Yet something is amiss from the start: Sophie is placed in the School for Evil, run by the glamorous and sullen Lady Lesso (Charlize Theron), and Agatha in the School for Good, overseen by the sunny and friendly Professor Dovey (Kerry Washington) .
As if navigating classes with the offspring of Cinderella, Captain Hook and the handsome son of King Arthur (Jamie Flatters) wasn’t hard enough, according to the headmaster (Laurence Fishburne), only true love’s kiss can change the rules and send girls to their destination school. But when a dark and dangerous figure (Kit Young) with mysterious ties to Sophie reappears and threatens to destroy the school and the rulebook completely – the only way to a happy ending is to survive the adventure first.
Paul Feig directed The school for better or for worse and worked closely with Chainani to bring the fan-favorite series to life on the small screen. Together, the duo established a visually gorgeous world that ignores the rules and limitations of nature. talking with EW about the creative process, Feig said, “I was really happy to get to work with visual artists to create something new,” he says. “If you look at all my films, you will notice that I always take a different genre each time. I want to work my way through all the genres, but fantasy was never a genre that I thought I would end up doing. It’s a hard genre to do, and is a very specific genre. But once I read this and could visualize the world of it, it was really fun.”
IN The school for better or for worse photos, we see the film’s elaborate costumes, breathtaking school grounds, and a gala that makes the Beast’s Castle look like a one-star Airbnb for Mouseketeers. I can’t wait to see what kind of mischief is controlled when The school for better or for worse casts a spell on Netflix on October 19.
