Enola Holmes 2 Trailer: The Young Detective Sets Out to Solve Some Mysteries
The trailer opens with the young detective running and being chased by some guards in London. “Perhaps I should explain,” says Millie Bobby Brown as Enola, as the visuals shift to the main story.
Enola wants to take the Holmes legacy forward and start her own journey as a detective. There are, however, two problems in her way, as per the prospective clients: She is too young, and she is a girl. Add to that the charm and popularity of her elder brother, Sherlock Holmes, who remains the first choice as a detective for London natives.
But, Enola does not give up and eventually does get her first case, a little girl trying to find her lost sister. The budding detective then goes on an adventurous journey to solve the case, which is more complex than she had hoped and eventually is revealed to be connected to a case Sherlock is trying to solve.
