It's time to dust off the fine china — the first trailer for the Downton Abbey movie has arrived.
The movie takes place in 1927, and times have changed at Downton, as the Crawley family prepares for a visit from the king and queen of England. But Lady Mary (Michelle Dockery) seems to have even more on her mind. Could she be leaving Downton for good?
"Downton Abbey's the heart of this community," Anna (Joanne Froggatt) says, "and you're keeping it beating."
Over three years after Downton Abbey ended its run on PBS in late 2015, the movie reunites the principal cast of the acclaimed period drama, including Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Allen Leeche, Elizabeth McGovern, Jim Carter, and Matthew Goode. At the Television Critics Association winter press tour in February, Carmichael said, "It was really magic to see each other and see each other become those characters again."
"I think everyone will be pleased," she added. "We've upped the ante, it's like turned the volume up."
The Downton Abbey movie will hit American theaters Friday, Sept. 20. The series is currently streaming on Amazon Prime.
