In the first trailer for Downton Abbey: A New Era, Maggie Smith's Dowager Countess of Grantham is up to no good as the Crawley family heads to the South of France to figure out the mysteries behind her villa inheritance.
Jullian Fellowes, the creator of Downton Abbey, will continue his script writing alongside director Simon Curtis for the new film. The adaptation follows the 2010 TV series and first film from 2019. Focus Features released the trailer today for Downton Abbey: A New Era, and there are some plot holes that need to be uncovered.
The year is hinted to be sometime in the roaring 1920s, as Penelope Wilton's Isobel Grey talks to Smith's Violet Crawley about taking pictures. While some members such as Hugh Bonneville's Lord Grantham, Elizabeth McGovern's Lady Grantham and Laura Carmichael's Edith Pelham take a visit to Violet's villa by boat, back in Downton Abbey is a 'talkie' (film) being shot by Hugh Dancy's role of director Jack Barber. The two lead stars in his movie will be Laura Haddock and Dominic West's characters.
The original cast of Maggie Smith, Hugh Bonneville, Michelle Dockery, Imelda Staunton, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Robert James-Collier, Phyllis Logan, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, Lesley Nicol will accompany the newly cast group of West, Haddock, Dancy and Nathalie Baye. No one knows how both of these stories will collide, but towards the end of the trailer, it looks like a marriage will take place.
Watch the premiere of Downton Abbey: A New Era exclusively in theaters May 20th.
