Downton Abbey: A New Era Updates: A New Era is the sequel to the hugely successful Downton Abbey film from 2019, which was itself based on the renowned television series.

DOWNTON ABBEY : A NEW ERA PLOT:
Downton Abbey: A New Era (which you can watch below) unveiled a slew of narrative points. Violet Crawley (Maggie Smith) states in a hilarious scene: “Years ago, before you were born, I met a man…” Her son Robert (Hugh Bonneville) is sufficiently taken aback by the discovery. She goes on to tell that an anonymous stranger has given her a villa in France as a gift! “What?!?” exclaims Lady Mary. (Photo courtesy of Michelle Dockery) So we know the Crawleys are off to France for a new adventure. Violet’s bequest appears to be more than meets the eye, and they appear to be having a fantastic time.The Crawley family on their trip to France has been featured in new photographs from the film.In addition, the trailer includes scenes from a wedding. So, who’s tying the knot? Tom Branson (Allen Leech) is a widower, and Lucy Smith is his maid (Tuppence Middleton).
