The School for Good and Evil 2 is teased by director Paul Feig. Based on the best-selling series of novels by Soman Chainani, The School for Good and Evil was adapted as a movie for Netflix based on a script written by David Magee. Starring an array of top Hollywood talent, including Charlize Theron, Kerry Washington, Laurence Fishburne, and Peter Serafinowicz, The School for Good and Evil follows friends and social outcasts Agatha (Sofia Wylie) and Sophie (Sophia Anne Caruso), as they discover a magical fantasy realm that teaches the next generation of both the good and evil of fairy tales.
The School for Good and Evil ends on a major cliffhanger. Throughout the movie, Agatha (Wylie) and Sophie (Caruso), are in a battle with themselves as they are separated and Agatha is taken to the School for Good (the “Evers”) and Sophie to the Evil (the “Nevers”). However, the pair come together and decide they must escape and defeat the antagonist Rafal (Kit Young). While everything goes according to plan, and they take Rafal down, the duo narrowly escape to their own world and must live separately from their new friends. However, their future is threatened when Tedros (Jamie Flatters) pierces the vortex between worlds and opens a gate between the two. The narrator, played by Cate Blanchett, announces, “This was only the beginning,” leading viewers to believe a sequel is in the works.
Now, in a new interview with Entertainment Weekly, Feig teases his ideas for a The School for Good and Evil 2. Feig admits he could not possibly cram everything from the first novel into the first movie, but wants to continue the story as it plays out in the books. Check out what Feig has to say about a possible sequel below:
“The goal is definitely for this to be a franchise… That’s the plan going forward, just take all the material of these books, and hopefully make a franchise out of it. We love the characters, love the world. The books are super fun and very dense.”
What Could School For Good & Evil 2 Be About?
Luckily, The School for Good and Evil 2 has plenty of source material to explore, as the story spans 6 books. Based on Feig’s answer, it seems the plot will continue to unfold as it does in the second novel. However, the film’s conclusion changes the story up, with Tedros opening the gate between worlds rather than Agatha, who opens it in the second book in the series. Titled, The School for Good and Evil #2: A World without Princes, the book sees Agatha and Sophie return to living out their ‘normal’ lives at home, but with Agatha having major regret for how her ‘happy ending’ turned out.
However, it makes sense for The School for Good and Evil 2 to explore the duo’s disdain for their “normal” life in Gavaldon and explain why they want to return to the mystical lands of Good and Evil. The novel sees the fantasy world completely changed – with unlikely friendships between witches and princesses, and warlocks and princes. The sequel would likely continue Tedros’ and Agatha’s romance, and perhaps that will bring the pair back to the fantasy world. Either way, an evil force is brewing, and Sophie and Agatha must work together again to stop it from taking down the magical world they’ve called home. Hopefully, fans will have more answers soon as to whether their story will continue in a possible The School for Good and Evil 2.
