The Plot of the Sequel
To begin with, Enola Holmes 2 will have the same creative team as the original film, with Harry Bradbeer directing and Jack Thorne writing the narrative.
There is not much information about what sort of tale Bradbeer and Thorne will be presenting in the highly anticipated sequel, but from what we know right now, Enola will be causing more than enough trouble as she examines the new case her
One of the primary story elements in the first film is the reform bill related to the ladies’s suffrage movement in which both Eudoria and Edith are significantly involved.
With the main theme of the film series being the independence and strength of ladies, both through the characters and the script, it’s quite likely that this story will be explored in some form in the second movie.
The bill passes the House of Lords with Tewkesbury’s key vote at the conclusion of Enola Holmes, which is certainly excellent news for Eudoria and her fellow supporters, and yet England in the 1800s it has a long way to go to get justice, and it becomes intriguing to see the film’s liberal principles investigated in those other elements of 19th century life as well.
In addition, Tewkesbury’s status as a representative of the House of Lords may play an important role in the plot of the sequel and his involvement, however, it’s uncertain how political the film show intends to be. Because Enola Holmes is geared toward a broad range of viewers, we can anticipate that the sequel will be a straightforward and entertaining tale in the same way with a primary mystery for Enola to be shared.
We can even expect the growing connection between Enola and Tewkesbury to be expanded in Enola Holmes 2, in addition to the sibling bond between Enola and Sherlock.
