Executive producer Gareth Neame tells EW about the upcoming cinematic event that will be Downton Abbey:
“We had to do everything that all the fans wanted, but we had to do something that was fresh and original. We wanted a kind of storyline and sense of scale and production value that exceeded even the very high production values the TV show was remembered for.
“On the big screen, it just had to look a little bit more lavish and a little bit bigger and better.
“It’s a return to these really beloved characters and seeing them in new sets of circumstances and how they will deal with those, and hopefully, a good mix of the drama, comedy, and romance that had been the mainstays of it all.”
Squeee!!! We love Downton Abbey here at my house!!!
Downton Abbey will hit theaters on Sept. 20, 2019.
