This September the doors of the aristocratic Crawley family home Downton Abbey will be opened once again. The cinematic event fans of the popular UK Period drama series fans have been waiting for 5 years. It may not be another series which deep down many fans may desire, but a chance to see their favourites for another 2 hours they will cherish it.
After finding out the Crawley’s were setting up the Abbey for a very royal visit, we still don’t know much more about the plot. Fans of the show won’t really care as their favourites are coming back and may bring some more closure to the series. Or will it spark off a series of film if the film is an success?
Ahead of the September release, Universal Pictures has sent us a new collection of character Posters. The Posters have been split into two sections: Upstairs and Downstairs. Basically the Crawleys and their staff to the viewers our favourites!
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.
If you watched the TV version of the show you’ll know the cast was massive. 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.
