Brilliant news for ‘Downton Abbey’ fans in the UK!

The Downton Abbey movie will arrive in UK cinemas ahead of its US release next year.

All the main characters from the TV series are expected to return, apart from Lily James, who played Lady Rose.

It was announced last week that the movie will be released Stateside on Friday 20th September 2019.

We can now confirm that the film will be released in the UK, and the rest of the world outside the USA too, on Friday 13th September 2019.

The much-anticipated big screen outing for ITV’s hit period drama series started filming earlier this month.

Directed by Michael Engler (The Big C, The West Wing), the movie has been scripted by Downton Abbey creator Julian Fellowes.

Downton Abbey: The Complete Collection is available to buy now.

2019 will be a busy year for Julian Fellowes, with the British writer currently developing a number of other TV and film projects.
