A trailer teasing the storyline for the second Downton Abbey movie has been released today (Tuesday).

Downton Abbey tells the story of the Crawley family and how they adjust to the changes of the 20th century.

Highclere Castle is the location used for the fictional stately home and once again the cast and crew have been busy filming a second movie, scheduled for cinema release on April 29 in the UK.

The film follows on from the hit ITV series, written by Julian Fellowes.

The first film was released in 2019 and focused on what happened when King George V and Queen Mary paid a Royal Visit to Downton Abbey.

In a case of art imitating art it seems the sequel – Downton Abbey: A New Era – will find the Downton estate taken over by actors and crew members, including the likes of Hugh Dancy and Laura Haddock, filming a new movie in the home.
