Before we get to see her in the fan-favorite avatar of Eleven on 'Stranger Things', we will see Millie Bobby Brown appearing as Enola Holmes, Sherlock Holmes' sister, in the upcoming original Netflix film. The first official look at the character was released on Wednesday, June 24, by Netflix that confirmed that the film will be available for streaming this September. Here's all you need to know all about the film.
'Enola Holmes' premieres on September 23 on Netflix at midnight.
The official synopsis of the film reads, "Based on the beloved Edgar-nominated book series, 'Enola Holmes' tells the story of Sherlock and Mycroft Holmes' rebellious teen sister Enola, a gifted super-sleuth in her own right who often outsmarts her brilliant siblings. When her mother mysteriously disappears on her 16th birthday, Enola seeks help from her older brothers. But soon realizing 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. Meeting a cast of memorable characters along the way, Enola's caught in the middle of a conspiracy that could alter the course of political history. 'Enola Homes' puts a dynamic new female twist on the world’s greatest detective and his brilliant family."
Henry Cavill plays the role of Sherlock Holmes. Cavill is best known for his portrayal of the DC Comics character Superman in various films as well as Geralt of Rivia in the Netflix series 'The Witcher'.

The trailer introduces us to Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes, as various characters say her name. These include Henry Cavill, who plays Sherlock; Sam Claflin, who plays Mycroft; and Helena Bonham Carter, who plays the Holmes family's matriarch. As the brothers make their way to the country estate where Enola lived with her mother, we see glimpses of Enola, mostly running away from those pursuing her that include her brothers and her boarding school's headmistress played by Fiona Shaw. We see her tackling a man using martial arts as someone comments about how she is "sharp as a tack". The trailer ends with Enola lifting her veil as she says with a smirk, "Tis' I".
