Downton Abbey is an upcoming American Drama film directed by Michael Engler and written by Julian Fellowes, Julian Fellowes. "Downton Abbey" Almost four years after finishing the series Downton Abbey, which has lasted six seasons, in September its premiere will take place on the big screen of the United Kingdom (specifically on September 13, while in Spain the date will be delayed somewhat more, for the 20 of that same month). This feature film will be the finishing touch that will close one of the current vintage series that has been most successful on television in recent times.
The series ended with her rather well-established characters: Lady Mary ended this last married season and under Downton, Lady Edith became a very powerful figure in the written press, Anna and Bates had a son and the rest of the characters closed the sixth season with very stable and settled lives. But something will make everything mess up a bit and we can have a feature film that continues with this end of the sixth season, creating, now yes, the final closing of the series through the big screen.
The film will be framed one year after the end of the series, in 1927, a dark season for the economic situation of many families, since so close to the Great Depression, it will affect the Crawley family, who will be forced to say goodbye A large part of domestic service. Another of the fundamental arguments of the film will be the visit of the monarchs Jorge V and Queen Maria, the grandparents of Isabel II (the current queen of England), to the castle of Yorkshire. This visit, it seems, is inspired by real events. The creator of the series, Julian Fellowes was based on a real trip that the kings made in 1912 to Wentworth Woodhouse in Yorkshire.
Principal photography commenced on June 15, 2019 in Washington, United States and concluded on August 10, 2019. The film is set for release on September 20, 2019.
