Fans loved Henry Cavill and Millie Bobby Brown’s first look from Enola Holmes. This Netflix film will have Cavill playing the role of Sherlock Holmes and Millie as his younger sister, Enola. It is adapted from Nancy Springer’s novels. The role of elder Holmes sibling, Mycroft will be essayed by Sam Claflin. Actress Helena Bonham Carter plays Millie’s mother.
Recently, the show grabbed headlines when the estate of Arthur Conan Doyle (writer, creator of Sherlock Holmes) filed a copyright suit against Netflix. Despite that, Netflix unveiled the first look of Henry, Millie, and Sam from Enola Holmes. Everyone is excited to know what the film is about. Well, read below to know everything.
As shared by What’s On Netflix, the streaming platform has provided the plot. The plot reads, “England, 1884 – a world on the brink of change. On the morning of her 16th birthday, Enola Holmes wakes to find that her mother has disappeared, leaving behind an odd assortment of gifts but no apparent clue as to where she’s gone or why. After a free-spirited childhood, Enola suddenly finds herself under the care of her brothers Sherlock and Mycroft, both set on sending her away to a finishing school for “proper” young ladies. Refusing to follow their wishes, Enola escapes to search for her mother in London. But when her journey finds her entangled in a mystery surrounding a young runaway Lord, Enola becomes a super-sleuth in her own right, outwitting her famous brother as she unravels a conspiracy that threatens to set back the course of history.”
Another information is about the novel from which the stories are taken in Enola Holmes. There are a total of 6 novels based on Sherlock’s sister. Out of that, the film will cover the events of The Case of the Missing Marquess which is the first novel. This also gives a chance for Millie Bobby Brown and Henry Cavill starrer to turn into a franchise.
However, for the sequel in the future, one important thing must happen. The copyright on remaining Sherlock stories ends on December 31, 2022. Until then, we might have to enjoy what we have available on Netflix.
Enola Holmes is shot at various locations in London. As the story and characters are from the city, it will help in giving the authentic feeling. The shooting also took place at Luton Hoo in Bedfordshire. The film will release in September this year.
