Published Dec 14, 2018Now that a film adaptation of Downtown Abbey has been confirmed and the shows' favourite familiar faces have signed on to be a part of it, the first look at the upcoming motion picture has arrived.
The teaser trailer returns to the title property (filmed IRL at Highclere Castle), giving viewers gorgeous wide shots of the famed mansion.

It's directed by Michael Engler, and show creator Julian Fellowes wrote the script.
It's also been revealed that the film will hit theatres on September 20, 2019.
The original TV series wrapped in 2015, after six seasons.
A full-length trailer is expected soon, but in the meantime, check out the teaser clip below.
