Netflix has released the first glimpse of footage from the upcoming Enola Holmes sequel!
Returning to script the film is Harry Potter and the Cursed Child writer Jack Thorne, with Harry Bradbeer (Grantchester) also back in the director’s seat.
The second movie wrapped filming in London last month, with Stranger Things actress Millie Bobby Brown once again playing the titular young detective.
Henry Cavill (Batman vs Superman) is also reprising his role, as Enola’s older brother, Sherlock Holmes.
As part of an absolutely epic trailer for its upcoming 2022 slate of movies, Netflix has unveiled some brief clips from Enola Holmes 2.
Jump forward to 1:06 if you don’t feel like watching the whole thing:
As well as previewing footage from the likes of Knives Out 2, Ryan Gosling’s The Gray Man, and fantasy adventure The School for Good and Evil, the trailer also includes brilliant specially-shot moments of all the stars hyping up Netflix’s movie line-up direct to camera.
The Enola Holmes 2 segment cleverly mocks this, in our heroine’s own unique style.
Following some exciting scenes of Enola running through the streets of Victorian London, Henry Cavill says: “In here, mystery sparks extraordinary adventure…”
To which Millie Bobby Brown hilariously responds: “The real mystery is why everyone’s talking to them. I thought that was my thing.”
Original cast members Louis Partridge, Helena Bonham Carter, Susan Wokoma, and Adeel Akhtar definitely are all back again as Tewkesbury, Eudoria Holmes, Edith, and Lestrade respectively.
They’ll be joined by several new faces, including David Thewlis (Harry Potter), Sharon Duncan-Brewster (Doctor Who), Hannah Dodd (Harlots), Abbie Hern (The Pact), Gabriel Tierney (Endeavour), and Serrana Su-Ling Bliss.
Enola Holmes 2 premieres exclusively on Netflix later this year, with an exact release date set to be announced soon.
While we wait, you can watch this hilarious blooper reel of on-set gaffs from the first movie.
Nancy Springer’s Enola Holmes novels are available on Amazon.
