‘Downton Abbey’ Movie Gets Greenlight; Original Cast Returns For Summer Start 'Downton Abbey' Movie Premiere Date, Cast and Spoilers

The television series 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.

Fellowes wrote the film's screenplay and will produce with Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge. Brian Percival, who directed the Downton Abbey pilot as well as The Book Thief and About a Girl, will direct. Maybe something drastic has happened in the time between the show's conclusion and the film's commencement, and not everything that was left tied up in a pretty bow will be as bright and shiny when the movie begins.

Per Instagram, producers behind the series have earmarked a summer start date, when most, if not all of the original cast - Dame Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery and Hugh Bonneville included - will be making their return.

The world of Downton Abbey can be celebrated right now in the first ever fully immersive experience: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition. Over its run, "Downton Abbey" picked up three Golden Globes, 15 Emmys and a special BAFTA award, enshrining the period drama as the most nominated non-U.S. television show in Emmys history.

UK's new Brexit strategy won't inhibit trade deals: minister
Asked if he could change May's plan without changing the prime minister herself, he replied: "Yes I think that's possible". It's over claims the government's Brexit white paper does not respect the referendum result.

Focus Features says "the original principal cast" will return, so we can likely expect appearances from most of the Crawley family along with beloved valet John Bates (Brendan Coyle) and his wife Anna (Joanne Froggatt).

The outlet notes that "not every recurring character" will appear in the Downton Abbey film - which is understandable considering that the series' main, recurring character, and guest cast lists rival the size of Game of Thrones'. The Exhibition is based in NY atে W 57th Street until 3rd September. The movie will be produced by Carnival films and distributed by Focus Features and Universal Pictures International.

Downton Abbey even inspired a live exhibition, which, for a price, lets visitors explore the costumes and set designs of the show.

It went on to win several Golden Globes and Primetime Emmy awards and there has always been speculation that it would be turned into a film.
