“We’ve been expecting you.” – Downton Abbey
And with these words, my fan girl heart is full of giddy anticipation and curiosity for the Downton Abbey movie aka the “event of the year.”
Back when the teaser trailer for this film dropped, and its subsequent photos, I started to draft this little fangirl ramble. Only then I never published it. But today. Oh my goodness, today, the powers that be released official character poster art, and I’m back to the place that I fell in love with: Downton Abbey. Though the image stills are now “old news,” I’m still going to share them, and though I wish there was more (just saying), I’m still happy to gush over these.

Downton Abbey, for those who are unfamiliar, is a British show that once aired on Masterpiece Theatre (in the US) for six series. During which many a British star guests, plus the series launched the career of other now famous actors (like Dan Stevens or Lily James). It follows the Crawley family post-Titanic tragedy, through WWI and eventually the Roaring 20s. The series is a British soap opera at its finest with many ups and downs, but at its heart, it’s an incredible series I wish would have continued. Focus Features invite us to return to this world this fall (as of now, September), only this time instead of a TV show, it will all unfold in glorious HD on the big screen. Here’s a brief synopsis:
Adapted from the hit TV series Downton Abbey that tells the story of the Crawley family, a wealthy owner of a large estate in the English countryside in the early 20th century.
Though a few cast members won’t return (like James’ Rose), the primary family is intact, and let me tell you, it all evokes all the feels, plus looks good while doing so.
With no further preamble, here are three official images from the Downton Abbey film. Also, I’m swooning over one of these images!
My what a purposeful stride, Carson!
Now for the real glitz and glamour aka the freshly released character posters that do what they set out to; tease us!
