Enola Holmes photos debuted online this morning, as the film looks to be releasing on Netflix in September. Starring Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes, the famed investigators sister, the film will also star Henry Cavill as Sherlock, Helena Bonham Carter, and Sam Claflin who will play Mycroft. This is based off a series of books by Nancy Springer. The photos debut as it was reported yesterday that the streamer is being sued by the Arthur Conan Doyle estate alleges that the stories focusing on "Holmes' younger sister infringes on the Holmes stories that remain under copyright. The estate claims that the film starring Millie Bobby Brown, depicts the legendary detective as warm and friendly, a characterization that only appears in the final 10 Holmes stories." Variety reported on that yesterday. You can see the new photos from the film below.
Enola Holmes Can Still be A Big Franchise For Netflix
"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. This puts a dynamic new female twist on the world's greatest detective and his brilliant family."
lawsuit aside, Netflix has to be excited about this one. With this cast and interest in the novels and books, this can absolutely become their big film franchise they have been desperately craving. Between this, Extraction, Da 5 Bloods, and some other, this has been a banner year for them in the original films department. Look for Enola Holmes to hit in September, with a trailer debuting soon.
