These new Netflix Originals are amazing for any and all viewers and are a great way to spend time in between online classes.

  1. 1. Julie and The Phantoms

    Julie and The Phantoms is Kenny Ortega’s newest project based off of the Brazilian television show Julie e los Phantasmas. It follows Julie (Madison Reyes), a teenager grieving the loss of her mom, as she rediscovers music. She meets three teenage ghosts (Charlie Gillespie, Owen Joyner, Jeremy Shada) who are also practicing music, but learn they can only be perceived by the living world when they play with Julie. 

    The show features a diverse cast, and progressive plotlines that haven’t previously been explored in depth with children’s shows such as loss/death and LGBTQIA+ romance. Julie and The Phantoms is also reminiscent of Kenny Ortega’s previous works which include the High School Musical and Descendants franchises with its impressive soundtrack.   

  2. 2. Enola Holmes

    Enola Holmes is a new Netflix Original Film featuring Sherlock Holmes’ younger sister, Enola (Millie Bobby Brown). Enola discovers her mother is missing and sets out on an adventure to find her and to outsmart her older brother and famous detective. 

    Helena Bonhman Carter, who plays Enola’s mother Eudoria, shared that, “I just loved the idea of it. It’s actually funny, because Sherlock himself is quite misogynistic, the original Sherlock. So it’s like a ‘f***k you’”.  

    The cast is incredibly impressive, including Millie Bobby Brown, Helena Bonham-Carter, Sam Claflin and Henry Cavill. The movie presents a new and interesting take on the Holmes family as they’ve been portrayed throughout film and literature for the past century.
