The show was inspired by the 1970s BBC series "Upstairs, Downstairs" and it is about what really happens between the upstairs nobles who interact with the downstairs servants. The series creator Julian Fellowes has penned the movie’s script, while Michael Engler — who directed finale of the show in 2015 — will serve as the director.
In its six seasons, the series has amassed 3 Golden Globe Awards, 15 Primetime Emmy Awards, and 69 Emmy nominations in total. And this is a mere testament to the accolades that the show has received over the years. Downton Abbey even earned a Special BAFTA award and a Guinness World Record for the highest critically rated TV show along the way.
Laura Carmichael, who plays Lady Edith in the Downton Abbey movie, said that she was overwhelmed by the upcoming movie. “I can’t imagine that anyone feels about Downton the way that I do,” she told Harper's Bazaar. “It changed my life in the most dramatic way possible. If I hear the theme music, I can get a bit emotional."
“The shoot was fun, we had a really good time. It felt very comfortable going back and lovely to be with everyone again. There’s so much affection for the show and we feel that as well,” Laura added. The upcoming Downton Abbey movie is releasing on September 20 and you can watch the trailer here:
