The Crawleys are coming back!
It’s really happening! We’re going to get a Downton Abbey movie in 2019!
Rumours of bringing the multi-award-winning British period drama to the big screen have been circling around since the series ended with its sixth season in 2015. Fans waited eagerly for more news, and were rewarded earlier this year with the confirmation that a Downton movie will indeed be made.
While filming was still in process, we learned a few things about who’s returning and what the film will be about, even getting a little sneak peek! Here’s everything you need to know about the much-anticipated Downton Abbey movie.
1. The trailer
Filming officially wrapped on 1 December, and two weeks later, the show creators treated fans to the first official trailer! Granted, it’s only a teaser trailer that doesn’t reveal much about the plot of the movie at all. Nonetheless, we got a bit teary-eyed hearing that theme music again as the camera shows us all things familiar inside and outside of the majestic Downton Abbey.
