The Official Trailer For The 'Downton Abbey' Film Is Here

The Crawley family are making their big comeback in the company of the king and queen.

Get the silverware out of the dresser, dust the chandeliers and polish the glasses... For its big screen comeback on September 13, Downton Abbey is breaking out the full cutlery set, unrolling the red carpet, and preparing a genuine royal gathering for us!

Quite literally, because, as the trailer reveals, the Crawley family is preparing to receive an unexpected visit from the royal couple, George V and Queen Mary. They're all panicking in quite a reserved, English way, trying not to show their excitement. The corridors are bustling and the house staff can't keep up. 

It's 1927, and all of the characters are gradually adapting to a rapidly changing society. The Dowager Countess of Grantham, played by Maggie Smith, seems to have maintained her impertinent sense of humor. The actress will be reunited with almost all of her playmates in the film, including Michelle Dockery, Jim Carter, Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Penelope Wilton, and Elizabeth McGovern.

Four years after the end of the series, Downton Abbey is returning for a feature-length film which will be released in theaters on September 13 in the UK and on September 20 in the United States (and the rest of the world, we imagine). Julian Fellowes, showrunner of Downton Abbey, has written and produced the movie, and Michael Engler will be back as director. You've still got a few months left to take your tux or 1920s dress to the dry cleaners and honor your hosts, the Crawleys. Chop chop!
