Earlier this year it was announced that The Crawleys would return in the form of a big screen film and it turns out it's coming sooner than we first thought.

The Downton Abbey film is due to hit UK cinemas on 13th September 2019 while fans in the US will have to wait an extra week for it to hit the big screens.

Fans of the British drama, which proved to be an international hit, can expect to see many familiar faces from the original cast reprise their roles, including Maggie Smith for her role as Dowager Countess, Michelle Dockery as Lady Mary Crawley and Hugh Bonneville as Robert Crawley, the Earl of Grantham.


Peter Kujawski, chairman of Focus Films, the company behind the Downton Abbey film, said in a statement: "Since the series ended, fans of Downton have long been waiting for the Crawley family's next chapter.

"We're thrilled to join this incredible group of filmmakers, actors and craftspeople, led by Julian Fellowes and Gareth Neame, in bringing back the world of Downton to the big screen next September."

We already had a slight inkling that the film would be coming out next year, thanks to a not-so-subtle tweet from Hugh Bonnerville that said: "2019 #Downton Abbey."

Filming for the big screen began earlier this month and excited cast members took to Instagram to share selfies with their fellow cast members and we're absolutely living for it.

Allen Leech, who played Tom Branson in the drama, shared an adorable snap of him posing alongside Hugh Bonneville while the pair enjoyed a break from "rehersals, rehersals and scene study."

Hugh also uploaded a selfie of himself an Allen along with their co-star Elizabeth McGovern, who of course plays High's onscreen wife Lady Cora.

Michelle Dockery aka Lady Mary also got involved in the behind-the-scenes preview game when she uploaded a black and white snap of the set, along with the caption "And... we're off."

This couldn't get any more exciting, roll on September 2019.
