DOWNTON ABBEY: The movie DOWNTON ABBEY reunites all of the main characters (and actors) from the beloved TV series in a sweeping cinematic story about the King and Queen visiting Downton Abbey in the 1920s.  The television series “Downton Abbey” followed the lives of the Crawley family and the servants who worked for them at the turn of the turn of the 20th Century in an Edwardian English castle (Downton Abbey).  Over its six 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.  For the huge fan base of the TV show the DOWNTON ABBEY movie is like two hours catching up with old friends – finding out what happened to the characters since the show ended, and sharing in their joys, their tragedies and their dramas!
