There’s not much to see in the new teaser trailer for Focus Features’ Downton Abbey movie, but that likely won’t matter to devotees awaiting the return of the Crawley clan after their departure in 2015 after six award-winning and era-defining seasons on PBS and ITV.
The first look features mostly interior and overhead shots of Highclere that will certainly look fantastic on the big-screen canvas. It comes ahead of the film’s September 20, 2019 release date (Universal Pictures International rolls out the pic abroad a week earlier) and likely portends a first official trailer is coming soon.
Creator Julian Fellowes wrote the script and is producing with Gareth Neame and Liz Trubridge. Michael Engler is directing. The upstairs-downstairs cast returning includes 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.
