The game is afoot. Millie Bobby Brown has left Stranger Things’ 1980s setting behind for 19th-century London in Netflix’s Enola Holmes. The film, based on the book series by Nancy Springer, sees Sherlock Holmes taking a backseat to his sister’s keen detective skills.
Production on Enola Holmes has been significantly impacted by the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic. Legendary Pictures announced plans to adapt Springer’s books back in February 2019, with Warner Bros. originally scheduled to release the film during the 2020 holiday season. However, Netflix acquired the movie back in April and has scheduled its release for later this year in lieu of a theatrical run.
In a press release, Brown shared her enthusiasm about stepping into the role of Enola.
“I love the fact that she can be very vulnerable yet even in her deepest despair she’s able to find herself again and fight back,” Brown said of Enola. “I admire her courage and her strength. She goes to pretty dark places but she never gives up. It’s a big journey for her. She’s quite naïve and comes up against forces that are way beyond her. So she has to find her own resources, her own voice even when there is no one around to help her.”
With Enola Holmes’ premiere fast approaching, here’s everything we know about the movie mystery, including its release date, plot, cast, and trailer.
