After 2020 Netflix movies Enola Holmes became a surprise hit, stranger things When actress Millie Bobby Brown played Sherlock Holmes’ brilliant sister, the only unsolved mystery was when we’d get the sequel. was eNora Holmes 2offers an exciting, engaging, and entertaining chapter in the story of Enola, and is full of clever twists.

With Brown returning as the title character, Enola Homes 2 It also revives Henry Cavill (witcher) as Sherlock, directed by Harry Bradbeer (free bag) behind the camera, etc. Digital Trends spoke to his Bradbeer about his efforts. Enola Homes 2 And whether a third installment of the franchise is on the way.

Digital Trends: The first film to focus on Enola learning to be independent and getting things done on her own without the help of her famous siblings. This pivots quite a bit thematically from there. How would you describe the theme of this movie?

Harry Bradbeer: Well, you put your finger on it. In a nutshell, it is the transition from “me” to “we”. That is, from being able to stand on one’s own feet to learning the power to collaborate and collaborate with others. [It’s about] We learn that to reach our full potential as human beings, we must come together.

We decided to develop that idea into a relationship with Sherlock and enlist the help of Tewksbury (Lewis Partridge). And, of course, the main storyline that runs it all: She teamed up with a group of working-class girls to fight corruption and advance the cause. of union and sisterhood.

How has Millie Bobby Brown’s portrayal of Enola evolved over time? Was there a point where it was? She embodies the character very well.

Having worked in television, I know what I learned from the first series and what I want to move forward. And then we saw what we had in the first film: this incredible actor who could move between comedy and drama and tragedy. Because he thinks it’s his life. Billy Wilder said comedy and tragedy are life. That’s exactly it.

So we were working on it, but listening to how she worked and what she was bringing. We wanted to take it in a little bit and grow with her through that movie, which was shot for two years. [after the first film] when she is approaching her 18th birthday.

So we tackled what Millie had and what she wanted to do more of. We wanted to use Sherlock more. I knew audiences wanted to see her and him solve crimes together. And, of course, they wanted to see Enola and Tewkesbury develop a romance.

Both films have a great way of working with the audience to add a little more emotion to the moment when Enola gives the camera a fleeting facial expression that conveys her feelings. how did you adjust

Very kind, isn’t it? we’ll try it. I often do a free take at the end of a scene. In that case, [Brown] I don’t know if I will see it. We also distribute it. There are times when you don’t have time to be lighthearted. Either he’s too serious to point the camera at, or he’s doing something a little embarrassing, like when he’s dancing with Tewkesbury.

He teaches her to dance and she is in love with him. go away. “At that point, she says, ‘Leave me alone. This is awkward.'”

So you can express awkwardness. It can express collusion. It may be a wink. Or what else to say when Sherlock gives her some pretty shocking advice and then she says, “You should probably write it down”?

henry cavill sherlock The sequel makes a lot of progress. What is it that helps Henry make this franchise unique and special?

I think he has a really emotional connection with the character. He understands Sherlock’s loneliness. It’s not just because Sherlock lives alone and has a dysfunctional family, but because his brain is functioning at such a rapid rate that he can’t relate, make small talk, or be a person. Because it’s hard to get along. That’s how he can relax.

His emotional difficulties are something Henry felt connected to, connected to, and he could bring up. And as part of a very close family, [Cavill] I also understand how brotherhood works. From the first time we met, I knew he would bring something warm and interesting to our relationship with Enola.

Without revealing any spoilers, are there any elements of the film that you’re particularly proud of?

What I really liked is the message of this movie. the importance of listening and cooperating with others, [and] The idea of ​​cooperation is very close to my heart as a collaborative human being in art and life. smartphone, must be connected. It’s that element of the film, the idea of ​​unity, the idea of ​​putting aside our egos and pride and being open to connecting with others, that ultimately leads the film to real triumph. increase.

The final climax needs that cooperation [and] Putting ego aside for the common good. That message in entertainment has always been my ambition. I’m proud to say it works. I think we were able to pull it off.

This movie sets up another installment really well. Has there been any debate about where things will go in future films, or how many films are ideally needed to complete the story of Enola?

Just like the first movie, you will only be in one movie at a time. Of course, we talked about future possibilities and their directions. I am happy to see that possibility close at hand.
