It is clear that the Crawleys and their story will look even more lavish on the big screen thanks to a bigger budget. The producers have also said that everything is going to look bigger and better.
Downton Abbey TV series became a phenomenon. It won 15 Emmys and 3 Golden Globe awards over its six-season run. It had a huge star cast led by Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, 7th Earl of Grantham.
Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Joanne Froggatt and Maggie Smith also starred. The story will pick up two years after the events of the TV series.
One of the producers, Gareth Neame, told Entertainment Weekly, “It’s a return to these really beloved characters and seeing them in new sets of circumstances and how they will deal with those, and hopefully, a good mix of the drama, comedy, and romance that had been the mainstays of it all.”
Downton Abbey will hit theatres on September 20, 2019.
