'Downton Abbey' Movie Premiere Date, Cast and Spoilers

"Downton Abbey" became a global hit over its six-season run.

Brian Percival, who directed The Book Thief, About a Girl and the Downton Abbey pilot, will direct the film. Set against the backdrop of the early 20th century, the family melodrama unfolded during prominent events throughout history, including the sinking of the Titanic and World War I. Audiences fell in love with this brilliant cast of characters; it'll be a real treat to reunite with the likes of Michelle Dockery, Maggie Smith, and Hugh Bonneville on the big-screen.

Talk of a possible "Downton" movie has been ongoing since the sixth and final series of the drama aired in 2015 and on Friday afternoon, it was finally confirmed that the project is happening. Gareth Neame, Carnival's Executive Chairman and the film's producer said this about the movie.

Commented Focus chairman Peter Kujawski.

The world of Downton Abbey can be celebrated right now in the first ever fully immersive experience: Downton Abbey: The Exhibition.

Focus chairman Peter Kujawski added: "Since the series ended, fans of "Downton" have always been waiting for the Crawley family's next chapter. Filming to commence this summer". Based on the globally beloved TV phenomenon, visitors are transported on an incredible journey through the grand home of the Crawleys; from Lady Mary's bedroom and the sumptuous dining room, to Mrs. Patmore's hectic kitchen.

Carnival Films is a division of NBCUniversal International Studios and one of the UK's leading drama producers. The show was showered with awards, from Emmys to BAFTAs to Golden Globes - some more deserved than others - but it was always a joy to watch, even when it was occasionally ridiculous (the less said about Patrick the mystery man in bandages or Matthew's awesome "I've been paralyzed but I can definitely suddenly stand and catch a falling woman" miracle the better). It won three Golden Globes and 15 Emmys on top of 69 total nominations over the years.
