Fans have been eagerly awaiting Downton Abbey: A New Era, the sequel to the 2019 film which will see the Crawley family head to the South of France to uncover a mystery at a villa bestowed to Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, while an ambitious director plans to make a film at Downton.

She continues: ‘Years ago, before you were born. I met a man.’ It then transpires Dowager Grantham and her lover ‘spent a few days together and he gave her a house’.

The upcoming sequel will see the return of the much-loved cast including Hugh, Michelle and Penelope Wilton.

And it looks like there could be trouble in paradise for Lady Mary (Michelle) as she talks about the struggles of marriage in the trailer.

Lady Mary is seen talking to Hugh’s character, saying: ‘You don’t need me to tell you that marriage is a novel full of plot twists along the way.’

Taking to her Instagram after the premiere, she penned: 'And that’s a wrap…. Loved the new #DowntonMovie…. It’s out on the big screen this Friday and without doubt, well worth a watch.'

The trailer also shows estate becoming the setting for a film and a slim mustached Dominic, who plays an 1920s Hollywood actor, becomes quite the heartthrob among the staff.

One of the cooks says: ‘There is something about him, he’s like a wild animal ready to spring’

Mister Barber, a producer and director, begins to shoot the film- but Earl of Grantham, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) isn’t impressed by the fanfare.

‘I think it’s a horrible idea. Actresses plastered in make-up and actors just plastered,’ he says as the scene shifts to the Hollywood cast interrupting the day-to-day life in Downton.

The trailer also hints that fans will finally get to see widower Tom Branson find love again with maid Lucy Smith, as the pair tie the knot in romantic scenes.

Downton creator Julian Fellowes previously teased some details about the movie, which is based on the acclaimed TV series.

Speaking about the project, Julian shared: ‘It’s really a new era. The further the ’20s went along, the more the world was changing in so many ways. 

‘Everything from entertainment to transport was really different by the end of the ’20s. That’s what we’re referring to in that.’

Grand arrival! The upcoming sequel will see the return of the much-loved cast and part of the film sees the Crawley family travel to Violet's villa in the South of France

Julian sees the Downton films as an extension of the hit TV series, which ran for six seasons between 2010 and 2015, and he explained that the new movie will pick up from where the 2019 film ended.

He said: ‘As we know from the last film, Mary may not be the titular head of the household, but she is effectively running the show. We take that further.

‘We’re trying to mark the change – the fact that Crawleys of Downton are nearly in the 1930s, which is merely the beginning of the modern world.’
