- The film about the teen sleuth, also starring Henry Cavill and Helena Bonham Carter, is due out in September
- It is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated six-part series of children’s mystery books
The trailer for upcoming Netflix movie Enola Holmes was released on Tuesday. It introduces Stranger Things actor Millie Bobby Brown as Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister who, like her famous brother, is a bit of a detective.
The film tells the story the rebellious Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings, Sherlock and Mycroft. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers.
But soon realising they’re less interested in solving the case than in packing her off to finishing school, Enola does the only thing a smart, resourceful and fearless young 1880s woman can do ... she runs away to London to find her.
Brown has been sharing teasers on her Instagram in the lead-up to the film’s release.
Alongside Brown, the cast includes Superman actor Henry Cavill as Sherlock, Hunger Games’ Sam Claflin, and stars of the Harry Potter films, Helena Bonham Carter, Frances de la Tour and Fiona Shaw.
The film is based on Nancy Springer’s Edgar Award-nominated six-part book series, The Enola Holmes Mysteries. The first and fifth books in the series were nominated for Edgar Awards, a prize for American mystery writing.
