At the sixth annual Women in Entertainment Summit, director Paul Feig asked two-time Oscar-winning Australian actress Cate Blanchett (Lord of the Rings, Thor – Ragnarok, Nightmare), to be the narrator of her Netflix fairy tale, A school for good and evil.
Listing the female stars who will lead the ensemble, Feig revealed: “Originally, we only had Cate Blanchett as our narrator, so we’re very excited about that. She hasn’t been announced yet – it’s a work in progress.”
Based on the original novels by Soman Chinani, the film centers on best friends Sophie (Sophia Ann Caruso) and Agatha (Sophia Wylie), who are kidnapped from their village and taken to a magical world where they must attend a school of goodness.

Not only will they be challenged to discover who they are, but their friendship will be tested.
