Roth Films is behind the production of The School for Good and Evil and is most well known for their work on other live-action fairy tales such as Snow White and the Huntsman, Alice in Wonderland, and Maleficent. Jane Startz Productions is also credited with production, while NVIZ is behind the Special Effects and Siam Costumes International for props.

The majority of filming took place in Northern Ireland, where many hundreds of extras and crew members used on the film lived locally. By May 2021 filming had reportedly wrapped for some of the cast, and nearly all of the filming had concluded by early July 2021. One final scene was shot by the end of July, which officially wrapped up filming.

Since the film went into post-production, the director Paul Fieg has been editing for at least ten hours a day in order to get his vision for the special effects perfect for the movie.

What is the plot of The School for Good and Evil?

Every four years on the night of the eleventh day of the eleventh month, two children aged 12 are stolen from the village of Gavaldon and spirited away to the School for Good and Evil. Sophie, fair-haired and beautiful, has dreams of being taken to the school, and live out happily ever after as a princess with an adoring prince. However, Sophie’s best friend, Agatha, couldn’t be more opposite, being ugly with dark hair, bulging bug eyes, and her graveyard home.

Both are perfect candidates for the school, but upon the fateful night of the kidnapping, to the pair’s horror both of them are sent to the “wrong” school. Sophie arrives as a student for the school for Evil, becoming a “Never,” while Agatha becomes a student at the school for Good and becomes an “Ever.”

At the time of writing there are six books set in the world of The School for Good and Evil:

The School Years

1. The School for Good and Evil

2. A World Without Princes

3. The Last Ever After

The Camelot Years

4. Quests for Glory
