Even though Netflix’s latest fantasy film, The School for Good and Evil, just came out, the streaming service is already getting requests for a sequel. Based on the novels by Soman Chainani, “The School for Good and Evil” is a film adaptation.
The film follows Sophie, who wants to be a princess, and Agatha, whose mother believes she has witchy tendencies.
In spite of this, one night under the influence of the blood-red moon, the two are transported to the School for Good and Evil, where children are groomed to become the heroes and villains of fairy tales.
Sophie attends the School of Evil, where she studies under the tutelage of Lady Lesso (Charlize Theron). In contrast, Agatha learns under the protection of Professor Dovey (Kerry Washington) in the School of Good.
However, when an evil force threatens the girls’ school, they must work together to discover a solution. The film’s cliffhanger suggests there may be a sequel, but will Netflix actually be releasing another installment of School for Good and Evil?
This is all the information we have for now.
When might the sequel of The School for Good and Evil be available on Netflix?
Since Netflix has not yet confirmed production on The School for Good and Evil 2, there is currently no set release date for the sequel.
Speculation aside, given the average interval of two years between Netflix films, we might have to wait until October 2024 to return to the academy if a sequel is indeed greenlit.
The first film will begin production in April 2021 and wrap in July, with a 19 October 2022 Netflix release date. Filming will likely have to begin early next year if the October 2024 target release date is to be met.
The first film achieved the same outcome despite diverging from the source material in several ways. After the jump, there are spoilers.
Who could we see in a starring role if there was a sequel to “School for Good and Evil”?
Even though Netflix has not announced a sequel film, fans can count on seeing their favorite characters, played by Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie, respectively, return.
Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, and Michelle Yeoh, who played educators at the institution, all expected to return.
Sophie gives her life to save Agatha as the School Master tries to kill her after being revealed as a villain. In the book, one of the teachers end up killing the School Master, while in the film adaptation, it is Sophie.
Agatha kisses Sophie, and it turns out to be the kiss of real love, bringing Sophie back from the brink of death. Even though Tedros has insisted that Agatha remain at the academy with him, she and Sophie are allowed to return to Gavaldon.
The last scene depicts a vortex opening between Gavaldon and the fairytale world, through which Tedros’s arrow travels before being followed by the School Master’s dagger. However, it is unclear whether or not the School Master is still alive.
There are five sequels in the original book series. Thus the sequel might follow the plot of A World Without Princes. Sophie and Agatha return to their old school to find it completely transformed in this sequel.
The princes have been relocated to the School for Evil, while the witches and princesses have moved to the School for Girls (formerly known as the School for Good). Both schools are once again headed toward a collision; will Sophie and Agatha prevent this?
In the same vein, now that the film franchise has created the world, a sequel may have an altogether new tale. First, we have to see if the sequel actually gets made.
How many of the original cast members from The School for Good and Evil are returning for the sequel?
There have been no formal cast announcements for the sequel because it has not yet been finalized. Still, we anticipate that Sophia Anne Caruso and Sofia Wylie will reprise their roles as Sophie and Agatha. Agatha’s fiance Tedros, played by Jamie Flatters, should also return.
It’s expected that a lot of the supporting characters will be returned too, including Charlize Theron as Lady Lesso, Kerry Washington as Professor Clarissa Dovey, Michelle Yeoh as Professor Emma Anemone, and Cate Blanchett as the voice of the Storian.
Even though Laurence Fishburne’s School Master died at the end of the first film, this is a fantasy universe, and (spoiler alert!) the School Master finds a way to return in the book sequel, so he should not be written out just yet.
Is there a trailer for The School for Good and Evil 2?
The School for Good and Evil two has not yet begun filming. Thus there is no footage available as yet. While you wait for an update, you can always watch the original film again. Right now, you can watch The School for Good and Evil on Netflix.
