Recently, “Downton Abbey” fans rejoiced as the teaser trailer for the highly anticipated film came out. Even if one has never seen the widely popular British television series, they have no doubt heard the name or heard it referenced in pop culture. “Downton Abbey” follows the life of an aristocratic family in the early twentieth century, as well as the lives of their servants working downstairs. It may not sound too entirely interesting, but with the dramatized scenes and historic events, as well as the emotional depth and storyline provided for each of the 18 main characters, it achieved huge success not only in the U.K., but in the United States as well, ever since it originally aired on Sept. 26, 2010.

While not too much has been released on the storyline of the upcoming film, which is set to release on Sept. 20, 2019, it has been confirmed that many beloved cast members are to return for the movie, including Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley, and, to the excitement of many, Dame Maggie Smith as the Dowager Countess, Violet Crawley.

The final episode of the series ended with the wedding of one of the daughters, Edith, the promise of a baby for the eldest daughter, Mary, as well as the retirement of the elderly butler, Mr. Carson. The plot of the film is set to pick up a year and a half after the finale of the series, though that is really all that has been released regarding the story, aside from it will be a continuing saga of the aristocratic Crawley family and the servants that work for them.
