The Downton Abbey movie gets its first trailer

The Downton Abbey movie will be released in September 2019.

The smash-hit television series 'Downton Abbey' followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in their Edwardian English country house and ran for six seasons with countless Christmas specials, making it mandatory family viewing.

With "a royal luncheon, a parade and a dinner" planned, the Downton staff are in no mood for any visiting entourage to steal their thunder and are determined "to defend Downton's honour".

As the two-and-a-half minute trailer reveals, the film takes place in 1927 - about a year and a half after the TV series ended - and everyone at Downton is preparing for the arrival of two very special guests.

The cast also includes Raquel Cassidy, Brendan Coyle, Kevin Doyle, Michael C. Fox, Matthew Goode, Harry Hadden-Paton, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Douglas Reith, Max Brown, David Haig, Geraldine James, Simon Jones, Tuppence Middleton, Stephen Campbell Moore, Kate Phillips and Imelda Staunton.

The ITV drama's creator Julian Fellowes wrote the screenplay and is also co-producing the feature. Hugh Bonneville got in on the fun with this message to fans.

We already knew that the trailer would show Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) asking Carson (Jim Carter), the family's beloved former butler, to come out of retirement for the royal visit. The first teaser arrived in December around the Holidays.
