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).
