Just back. Got serious dress envy. The costumes are just out of this world. The attention to detail is just amazing.

And Maggie Smith is the absolute star, just as she was in the series.

The movie has been released on DVD.

I have my copy. The deluxe set comes with a small picture booklet, along with a recipe booklet.

When I've watched I'll report any extras on the disc.

I haven't seen the series, is the movie a standalone or do I have to watch the series to understand what's going on?

Hi Fairy,

The movie is stand alone, but I liked it so much, I wanted to see the shows. Now I want to see the movie again.  Grin

It's a delightful movie. Costumes, actors, comedy, some action. Without having seen the shows, the movie was just great all by itself. Kind of like high quality chocolate. And Maggie Smith and Penelope Wilson are amazing in everything they do. A joy to watch the two of them. Do see it and weigh in!

I watched the DVD last night. It is a stand alone piece, for any characters that need it explanations are casually woven in. Even more fun for me, who has watched DA from its beginning.

Anyway, the disc come with some extras - deleted scenes, conversations with the upstairs and downstairs cast, plus some others on the making of the film, costumes, etc.

It has optional English, French and Spanish subtitles.

Finally watched it On Demand last night. I really enjoyed it and may buy it for the extras.

A Christmas present for Downton Abbey fans.

Downton Abbey film sequel set for Christmas 2021 release

https://www.theguardian.c...or-christmas-2021-release

A sequel to the successful spin-off film from Julian Fellowes’ Downton Abbey TV series will be released this Christmas.

The as yet untitled film began shooting last week, with all key cast members – including Hugh Bonneville and Maggie Smith – returning alongside new faces including Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock and Dominic West.

The TV series ended with a season set during the general strike of 1926; the film was set a year and a half later, and featured a royal visit to the Yorkshire estate of Lord and Lady Grantham.

Plot details for the followup film are under wraps. The 2019 film was generally well-received and grossed $194m worldwide.

The plot of that movie included the revelation that Maggie Smith’s character, the dowager countess, did not have long to live. Smith, 86, will be returning for the shoot, under what are believed to be enhanced Covid precautions.

West will shortly be seen playing Prince Charles in the fifth and sixth seasons of The Crown.


Well that's nice news!
