Netflix drops first teaser clip of Millie Bobby Brown as Enola Holmes

Netflix has dropped a first look teaser at Millie Bobby Brown in the upcoming Enola Holmes film ahead of its launch next month – and we’re hooked already.

After posting a number of stills of the Stranger Things actress in action back in June, the streaming giant shared a 23-second snippet of the cast all repeating her character’s name.

At the end of clip, Millie gives a cheeky quip and told the camera: ‘Tis I!’

Fans were living for the little taste of what’s to come, with one writing: ‘Henry Cavill, Helena Bonham Carter, Sam Claflin AND Millie Bobby Brown? It’s a yes for me.’

Echoing a similar sentiment, another added: ‘Top-notch cast, can’t wait to see the interesting performances.’

Enola Holmes is based on the book series of the same name by Nancy Springer and is set in England in 1884.

The film kicks off on the morning of Enola’s 16th birthday when she wakes to find that her mother (Helena Bonham Carter) 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 (Henry Cavill) and Mycroft (Sam Claflin), 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 (Louis Partridge),

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.

Earlier this year, Netflix, among others, was sued by the estate of Sherlock Holmes creator Sir Arthur Conan Doyle.

In a 19-page lawsuit filed in New Mexico (and first reported by Deadline in June) the estate – which lost most of its rights to Sherlock Holmes in 2014 following a lawsuit – went after the streaming platform for copyright and trademark issues in regards to the film’s portrayal of the detective as possessing emotions.

Enola Holmes will be released in September on Netflix.
