Well, praise be for screenwriter Julian Fellows, who's bringing back 20th century England to the big screen. The original cast will be back in their ill-fitting accents before you know it. Now, a new trailer has dropped - igniting our excitement to return to that grand and beautiful building. Here's everything we know.
What's the story of the Downton Abbey movie?
The King and Queen are coming to stay! As revealed by the recent trailer, the Crawleys are hosting royalty, which initially sparks excitement... and then dread. All the strenuous preparations need to be made, but then they're invaded by the royal staff.
The official royal butler has taken charge of the Abbey, and inflicts a dictatorial manner. This doesn't sit well with Downton's staff, so they summon their original butler out of retirement. That's right: Carson's coming back!
Carter (Jim Carter) comes out of retirement to save the Abbey
Who's in the cast for the Downton Abbey movie?
