In The School for Good and Evil, the line between good and evil is drawn at birth. Sophie (Sophie Turner) has lived her whole life believing she’s a fairy-tale heroine out of the storybooks – innocent, beautiful, kind. Agatha (Lena Headey), on the other hand, is darkly ambitious with an unrivaled thirst to conquer anyone or anything in her way.
When they’re both sent to the mysterious boarding school where students are trained in how to succeed in their predetermined roles as either heroes or villains, Sophie quickly realizes that there’s more to her past than she could ever have imagined.
Designing the film was a challenge in many ways. First, it’s a period piece set in medieval times, but it also had to appeal to modern audiences. The producers wanted to avoid anything that would date the film or make it look too much like Lord of the Rings. They had some general ideas of what they wanted, such as people wearing layered clothing with lots of textures, but they didn’t want to be too specific. So they hired an art director who could take these general concepts and turn them into something real that could be photographed on location in Belgium. The production designer had a lot of latitude because she was working with a team of experts who were all trying to achieve the same goal: making this world feel believable without being too literal about historical accuracy.
