Watch a hilarious parody of the ‘Downton Abbey’ movie

A funny parody of the Downton Abbey movie has appeared online from the Saturday Night Live team.

With the long-awaited period drama movie now playing in cinemas around the world, NBC’s late-night sketch comedy program aired an affectionate spoof of its trailer in the show’s Season 45 premiere last “weekend.”

The two-minute clip sees the SNL cast appear as familiar Downton characters, with this cheeky tagline: ‘The beloved television show is now a feature film. And it’s mostly about cleaning.’

Watch the parody here:

A sequel to the hit movie hasn’t yet been officially announced, but Earl of Grantham actor Hugh Bonneville expects there to be many more Downton Abbey films in the pipeline.

The Downton Abbey movie DVD is available to pre-order on Amazon.
