Downton Abbey movie sneak peak: The King and Queen are coming!

It’s 1927 and the King and Queen are coming to stay. Welcome back to Downton Abbey.

Much to fans disappointment, the wildly successful show ended its reign in 2015, but now, four years later, the trailer for the highly anticipated movie has been released, and it’s everything you hoped for and more.

The trailer gives a sneak peak into what you can expect, showing Robert Crawley, 7th Earl of Grantham, reading a letter from the royal family, announcing that George V and Queen Mary are staying over.

With all the magic and original cast returning, the movie is sure to be a hit. Dame Maggie Smith will reprise her role as Lady Violet Crawley, Dowager Countess of Grantham, Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Talbot and Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley.

The movie seems to include all of the banter and wit of the original TV series, with the announcement met with plenty of excitement and sarcasm from Lady Violet – “Here we go …” she says.

Despite the film heavily focusing on the royal visit, Downton Abbey isn’t complete without romance and secrets.

The trailer shows a moment where Thomas (Rob James-Collier) is kissing a mystery man, adding intrigue to the entire story.

Guess we’ll just have to wait and see how the movie plays out.

Downton Abbey the movie will be premiering in Australian cinemas on September 12.
