Official Synopsis for The School For Good and Evil
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.

Michelle has arrived in Belfast and currently under quarantine. The production of The School For Good And Evil
is getting underway at Belfast Harbour Studios. The bulk of the filming will be taking place in Northern Ireland.
It is officially announced that Michelle will join The School For Good And Evil
, a Netflix film adaptation of Soman Chainani's New York Times bestselling young adult fantasy novel series of the same title.
The School for Good and Evil follows Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso) and Agatha (Sofia Wylie), two best friends are about to discover
where fairytale legacies go to school: the School for Good and Evil, where ordinary boys and girls are trained to be fairy tale heroes and villains. 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. Yet soon the girls find their fortunes reversed: Sophie is dropped into the School for Evil, Agatha into the School for Good. But what if the mistake is the first clue to discovering who Sophie and Agatha really are? Their friendship will be put to the test in this thrilling and comedic story where the only way out of a fairy tale is to live through one.
A plan to adapt the books for the screen has been in the works since the first book was released in 2013. At the time, Universal Pictures paid seven figures for the rights to the book, and Joe Roth was attached to produce. Netflix took over the rights in 2020. Pre-production began at Belfast Harbour Studios in Northern Ireland in January 2021.
Michelle will play Professor Emma Anemone who teaches Beautification for the School for Good. Directed by Paul Feig (Last Christmas
), the cast of The School For Good And Evil
will also include Charlize Theron (plays Lady Lesso, Dean of the School of Evil), Kerry Washington (Professor Dovey, Dean of the School of Good), and Laurence Fishburne (The Schoolmaster).
