Fans of Sherlock Holmes will embrace Enola, his clever, adventurous younger sister (Millie Bobby Brown). She’s independent and a feminist before her time, thanks to her mother (Helena Bonham Carter). But when mom disappears, Enola uses her sleuthing skills to solve the mystery — even outsmarting her big brother — in Netflix’s “Enola Holmes.”

Disney+’s “The Secret Society of Second-Born Royals” taps the superpowers of second-born royals, as rebellious princess Sam of Illyria, thanks to top-secret training, joins her peers to save the world.
