We're so excited for the new movie

The follow-up to the hugely successful 2019 movie adaption of the ITV period drama was originally planned for Christmas - however, delays in production have forced the date to be set back by three months.

The first film, which was created by screenwriter Julian Fellowes, followed a Royal Visit to the Crawley family and Downton staff from the King and Queen of England and ended with a ball fitting for the Royal Family.

The sequel is out in March

Joining the original principal cast are some new additions including Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye and Dominic West. Hugh is perhaps best known for his role as Will Graham in the hit series Hannibal, while Laura is known for her roles in White Lines and Guardians of the Galaxy.

Meanwhile, French actress Nathalie has appeared in Catch Me If You Can and Call My Agent, and Dominic is best known for starring in The Wire and The Affair - he is also set to play Prince Charles in The Crown. Downton Abbey: A New Era will be released in the UK on 18 March.
