Full Trailer for Sequel 'Downton Abbey: A New Era' with Maggie Smith
"Do I look as if I'd turn down a villa in the South of France?!" Focus Features has revealed the full-length official trailer for Downton Abbey: A New Era, now opening in US theaters this May after being delayed from March this year. A New Era is a continuation of the big screen cinematic Downton Abbey story, with the first film opening back in 2019 following the TV series. This new film will see the Crawley family and Downton staff receiving a royal visit from the King and Queen of Great Britain, but that's not it. There's also the buzz of a "motion picture" filming on the Estate, plus a visit to a mysterious villa in the South of France connected to Violet Crawley. What is going on with this villa? The ensemble cast features all the regulars returning again: Hugh Bonneville, Elizabeth McGovern, Maggie Smith, Michelle Dockery, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, & Phyllis Logan; joined by Hugh Dancy, Nathalie Baye, Laura Haddock, and Dominic West. I just love how sassy and regal the glorious Maggie Smith is in this trailer - she rules.
