Upstairs and downstairs are coming to the big screen: The first teaser trailer for the "Downton Abbey" movie is here.
The teaser provides glimpses at the exquisite interiors and stunning exteriors of the titular grand home (actually Highclere Castle in real life). The movie continues the storyline of the award-winning series, which ran for six seasons until 2015.
None of the stars are featured in the trailer, though we know that almost everyone is returning, including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Joanne Froggatt, and Elizabeth McGovern.
Very little is known about the plot. Executive producer Gareth Neame told Entertainment Weekly, "We had to do everything that all the fans wanted, but we had to do something that was fresh and original. We wanted a kind of storyline and sense of scale and production value that exceeded even the very high production values the TV show was remembered for. On the big screen, it just had to look a little bit more lavish and a little bit bigger and better.”
"Downton Abbey" opens in theaters September 20, 2019.
