“I’m truly excited to bring this amazing, touching, funny, and empowering world that Soman created in his wonderful books to life.” Paul Feig said previously. “I feel like a frog that just turned into a prince.” Soman Chainani added: “To have one of your favorite directors adapt your book into a film for Netflix is an honor and a dream. Paul Feig is a brilliant filmmaker and a master of tone — a perfect fit for the twists and turns of The School for Good and Evil. I have no doubt that he will make a true fairy tale classic.”

With her princess ambitions, Sophie knows she’ll be picked for the School for Good and join the ranks of past students like Cinderella and Snow White. Meanwhile, Agatha, with her grim aesthetic and wicked cat, seems a natural fit for the villains in the School for Evil.
