You are heartily invited to watch the biggest escape of the year. The Crawley family is returning in the new film Downton Abbey: A New Era, a next part of the hit British historical drama series; furthermore, a trailer and poster have been officially released for the forthcoming movie sequel.
The series Downton Abbey described the story of a prosperous family and their servants in Britain in the early 20th century. The sixth season of the show ended in 2015 and was welcomed by both critics and the public. In 2019, simply-titled Downton Abbey, a next sequel to the film, was released and continued to tell about the Crawleys and their staff when they arranged to host royalty. Downton Abbey: A New Era will be the title of the second film continuation of the series.
Although it is still unknown about the exact plot of this film, the new trailer indicates the Crawleys’ trip to the south of France for an escaping vacation and the past of Maggie Smith’s Violet Crawley will be focused.

Furthermore, there are other actors including Hugh Dancy (Hannibal), Laura Haddock (Guardians Of The Galaxy), Nathalie Baye (Catch Me If You Can), Dominic West (The Wire), Jonathan Zaccaï (Robin Hood).
