10 Movies Like The School For Good And Evil You Need To See
Harry Potter Series
Paul Feig, director of "The School For Good And Evil," said in an interview with IGN, "The first thing people are going to think about with a movie like this is Harry Potter." He is right; it's hard to watch a film that features a magical school and not think about the "Harry Potter" series.
Miss Peregrine's...
In "Miss Peregrine's Home for Peculiar Children," Jacob (Asa Butterfield) finds an orphanage full of children with otherworldly skills run by Miss Peregrine. Though not strictly school-based, the “building housing kids with special powers" element reminds viewers of Feig’s film.
The Sorcerer's...
Nicolas Cage's Balthazar Blake takes Dave Stutler (Jay Baruchel) under his wing to teach him magic in "The Sorcerer's Apprentice." With spell-casting, wizardry, and magical training, there are more than a few similarities between this film and "The School for Good and Evil."
Seventh Son
Seventh Son” follows a witch hunter forced to seek out the seventh son of a seventh son to serve as his new apprentice. This old-world-set fantasy adventure looks similar to "The School for Good and Evil," with its rustic aesthetic, magical sorcery, and abundance of swords, shields, and cloaks.
Into the Woods
Meryl Streep plays an evil witch who places a curse on the family of a humble baker in “Into the Woods.” The film relies heavily on fairy-tale narratives to power its story and isn’t afraid to play fast and loose with viewers’ expectations, just like “The School for Good and Evil.”
