Baker Street just got a little bigger with the trailer debut of Enola Holmes. Helmed by Harry Bradbeer (Killing Eve), the film — which drops on Netflix next month — stars Millie Bobby Brown (Stranger Things) as the young and rebellious sister of legendary Victorian investigator, Sherlock Holmes. Jack Thorne (Harry Potter and the Cursed Child) adapted the screenplay from Nancy Springer's YA novel series.

Henry Cavill (The Witcher) and Sam Claflin (The Hunger Games: Catching Fire) co-star as Enola's older, more famous brothers: Sherlock and Mycroft. When her mother (played by Harry Potter's Helena Bonham Carter) goes missing, Enola (whose name spelled backwards is the word "alone") will defy the expectations of a "well-bred lady" to solve the case, which involves a conspiracy to set back the course of history.

Watch the trailer (set to Hole's "Celebrity Skin") now:

Watching the trailer, it's easy to see the fun and fantastical Potter vibe the project's composer, Daniel Pemberton (Birds of Prey), told us about back in early February.

"I’m doing quite a conventional straight orchestral score, which is fun for me because I don’t normally do that," he said. "It’s a really fun, heartwarming adventure film ... It's very British."

"There were three words that came to me when I read the Enola Holmes [script]," Bradbeer said in a statement provided by Netflix. "And they ended up on the wall of our production office: Eccentricity, energy, and emotion. It was very particular, very English, and very alive. There was something exciting about being picked up by the scruff of the neck and dragged through the late 19th century by this young girl with a conviction that leapt off the first page."

Adeel Akhtar, Fiona Shaw, Frances de la Tour, Louis Partridge, Burn Gorman, Susan Wokoma, Claire Rushbrook, David Bamber, and Hattie Morahan co-star.
