Fans of the popular British television series Downton Abbey were delighted to learn that a film continuing the story of the Crawley family would be coming in the fall of 2019.
Now, we can see our first real look at the Downton Abbey film in the first official trailer. While the television series covered the years 1912-1925, the film begins in the year 1927 and sees some momentous news being delivered to the residents of Downton Abbey: King George V and Queen Mary are coming to visit!
Much of the trailer focuses on the bustle as the Abbey is prepared for the royal visitors, but there are also glimpses of how times are changing at the Abbey. Some talk of leaving, and there are references to how important Downton Abbey is to the area. The trailer culminates with the king and queen being welcomed to Downton Abbey. If the trailer is any indication, it looks like the Downton Abbey film will be the perfect continuation of the popular series.
Downton Abbey is directed by Michael Engler and is scheduled to arrive on September 20th, 2019 in the United States.
