The “Downton Abbey” movie is rapidly approaching, and fans of the original series can get their first look at the film thanks to the teaser trailer that was released this afternoon. The screenplay was written by Julian Fellowes, who created the series, and the film was directed by Michael Engler.
The film is from Focus Features, and while the trailer doesn’t have any dialogue, it should get fans excited for the big premiere next fall. What you will find in the trailer is a welcoming return to the Crawley home, with servants prepping food and glamour shots of the inside and outside of the sprawling estate.
The studio teased fans adding “Next year, you are cordially invited to the motion picture event — only in theaters,”. Fans of the show can watch the first teaser trailer below, there will certainly be more trailers and teasers released for the film as we get closer to the premiere date.
The film is being distributed by Universal Pictures internationally, with Focus Features releasing the film domestically. The film is currently scheduled to hit theaters domestically on September 20, 2019. As usual, European viewers will get to visit the Crawley mansion a little earlier, the film is debuting there on September 13, 2019.
The show lasted for six seasons, and in that time “Downton Abbey” won 15 Emmy Awards and earned 69 Emmy nominations. The show ended Season 6 as the most-nominated non-U.S. TV show in the history of the Emmy Awards. That’s a pretty great way to end a series, though saying goodbye still devastated fans across the globe.
Fans can look for Michelle Dockery, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, and Hugh Bonneville in the film. Joining the Crawley drama for the movie are Imelda Staunton, Geraldine James, Simon Jones, David Haig, Tuppence Middleton, Kate Phillips, and Stephen Campbell Moore.
