The Downton Abbey movie watch continues with big and exciting news. With a release date of September 2019 being announced a month ago, I assumed we’d have to wait for more. Thankfully, that wasn’t the case, as a teaser trailer and some photos have been released.
Don’t ask me how many times I’ve watched the teaser…
There isn’t much to say about the plot yet, but Entertainment Weekly managed to get a bit of useful information:
The film picks up approximately 18 months from where the 2016 series finale left off (at the stroke of midnight on Jan. 1, 1926).
A New Years Eve beginning sounds good to me! While I had hoped that the plot would take place many years after the finale, I have a feeling they have some interesting things up their sleeves making it take place only a short while after we last saw the characters. Time will tell. My fingers are crossed for a New Year and a full trailer!
Head on over to Entertainment Weekly for the slideshow of exclusive photos. All I kept saying was, “Thank goodness Maggie Smith’s character is still alive.”
