The plot of the Movie


Every four years two children, one good and one evil, are kidnapped and taken into an institution or school which is enchanted so that they can train themselves to take part in their own fairytales.


In the movie, the newest arrivals in the enchanted school or institution occur, i.e. of Sophie and Agatha where Sophie is sent to the School for Evil and Agatha is sent to the School for Good. During this Netflix teased that “ Only a true love's kiss can change the rules and send the girls to their rightful schools and destiny.”



Soon a dark and dangerous mysterious creature ties to Sophie so it can reemerge and threatens to destroy the schools and the entire world beyond that, the only way there can be a happy ending is that both the girls have to survive their real-life fairytale first.



In the end, the message which Paul Feig tried to deliver to his audience is that look we all are people, we all make mistakes, and we all are humans.


This message can also be seen in the movie through dialogue from the mouth of Agatha when she says “You are not evil, you are just human.”, Paul continued by saying that it is a very simple thing to understand, which he tried to show it in a more fanciful, stylish, and entertaining way, and lastly he added that the movie is relatable to our lives.
