After teasing viewers last month, Netflix officially set a release date and shared a new poster for its upcoming fantasy movie The School for Good and Evil! The movie is set to hit the streamer on Friday, October 21.

The magical new poster showcases the movie’s core cast of Charlize Theron (Lady Lesso), Kerry Washington (Professor Dovey), Sophia Anne Caruso (Sophie), and Sofia Wylie (Agatha). They stand surrounded by plants (living and dead), with the whole school behind them — the School for Evil on one side and the School for Good on the other, with the aesthetic to match.

Based on Soman Chainani’s bestselling series, The School for Good and Evil follows Agatha and Sophie, two best friends who become enrolled in the School for Good and Evil, where a select group of children learn how to become either fairy tale heroes or villains. Sophie has always longed to be a hero and believes her spot at the School for Good is secured. Meanwhile, Agatha seems more suited for the School of Evil. However, when they’re placed, the roles are reversed. The pair soon find themselves facing a dangerous adventure as their friendship is tested and they discover who they are.

The School for Good and Evil stars Wylie, Caruso, Theron, Washington, Laurence Fishburne, Michelle Yeoh, Mark Heap, Jamie Flatters, Freya Parks, Kit Young, and more. Paul Feig directed the screenplay from David Magee and Laura Solon.

The School for Good and Evil releases on Netflix on October 21. Check out the new poster below:
