You don’t have to be a fan to know ITV series Downton Abbey was so popular, not just here in the UK but worldwide. It’s probably the reason we have a movie version of the series coming up later this year.
Like any long running Television series fans of that show always want more. Very few of those shows could register such a massive fan base, such as Downton Abbey. Hard to believe its Christmas day special 2015 since we last seen the Crawley family and their servants on the big screen.
I’m no expert on the show, but I’m sure there’s a few endings we never got to in the show’s finale. I wouldn’t be surprised if these get concluded in this new film. All speculation at the moment, fans of the show won’t care, just another chance to their favourites this time on the big screen.
Universal Pictures are teasing us today with a set of Character Posters. Does this mean the first full trailer is about to be released soon?
The television series Downton Abbey followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country home. Over its 6 seasons, the series garnered 3 Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, a Special BAFTA award and 69 Emmy nominations in total, making Downton Abbey the most nominated non-US television show in the history of the Emmys – even earning a Guinness World Record for the highest critically rated TV show along the way.
The movie will stars a mixture of old and new cast. They include Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Matthew Goode, Harry Hadden-Paton, David Haig, Geraldine James, Robert James-Collier, Simon Jones, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, Stephen Campbell Moore, Lesley Nicol, Kate Phillips, Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton, and Penelope Wilton.
Downton Abbey arrives in UK cinemas from 13th September 2019.
