The first 'Downton Abbey' movie trailer is pure catnip for fans

[embedded content]

The first official trailer for the Downton Abbey movie contains almost nothing in the way of story (a royal luncheon!) but that’s not what we’re going back for, is it? All we care about is seeing the upstairs and downstairs of Downton – the wealthy Grantham family and their loyal help – go about their lives as “modern folk” in 1927.

The King and Queen are apparently visiting Downton Abbey, a momentous occasion for its residents and the kind of high stakes status quo drama they live for. Beyond that, the trailer is just essential footage of characters everyone came to love; from Mary, (with a new haircut – what will Edith say!), to Mr. Carson making a triumphant return to his old place of employ. 

There’s talk of leaving the grand old house (isn’t there always?), but the film may finally nudge our modern folk to let go of their estate and into the modern era. In the meantime, we’ve got enough Downton clichés to get us through the summer.

Downton Abbey arrives in theaters September 20.
