The video is short, and the estate – Downton Abbey – gets most of the screen time.
But the castle is as much a character as any human in the series, and the location is an integral part of the series’ success.
The teaser also confirms which characters are returning, and which are not.

When the film was announced, Michael Fox, who played footman Andrew Parker, tweeted: “This is all terribly exciting! #downtonabbey on the big screen… I should probably shave,” leading fans to presume he is returning as well.
Matthew Goode, who joined the TV series in its fifth season, is also appearing in the Downton Abbey movie – though “not a huge amount” he told This Morning.
He also said the cast was growing with new faces, though did not specify who.

The official synopsis gives very few details away and instead reads more as a retrospective for anyone who missed the TV series.
“The television series Downton Abbey followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the 20th century in an Edwardian English country house,” the synopsis reads.
“Over its 6 seasons, the series garnered 3 Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, 69 Emmy nominations in total, making Downton Abbey the most nominated non-US television show in the history of the Emmys – even earning a Special BAFTA award and a Guinness World Record for the highest critically rated TV show along the way.”
Where the Crowley family are now and what trials they and their staff will face, are still unknown.
Downton Abbey is out in UK cinemas on September 20, 2019.
