In the time honored tradition of Sherlock Holmes, the game is afoot in Netflix's Enola Holmes. Enola, played by Millie Bobby Brown, is the sister of Mycroft (Sam Claflin) and Sherlock Holmes (Henry Cavill). When their mother (Helena Bonham Carter) disappears, Sherlock and Mycroft decide to send Enola to finishing school, which is just about the last thing she wants to do. Enola eventually discovers her mother has left her clues about her whereabouts and when her brothers won't help, she decides to look for her alone. If you aren't familiar with Enola, the character comes from the young adult detective series titled The Enola Holmes Mysteries by Nancy Springer, which star and producer Brown intends to turn into a film franchise.
In the trailer, we get a glimpse of all the main players in Enola's first "solo" adventure, including her more established brothers Mycroft and Sherlock, her mother Mrs. Holmes, and other yet-to-be-introduced-characters — including the young Viscount from The Case of the Missing Marquess. Whether or not Enola will be able to solve her first mystery is still to be seen. But we won't have to wait long; it seems all our questions might be answered when the film premieres on 23 Sept., which was cleverly announced on Netflix's Twitter via the anagram, "alone loshme reeebtpms wnettyrhitd."
