Downton Abbey movie sequel A new era is due out at the end of the month, and to win over fans, a four-part behind-the-scenes series will be online tomorrow (April 19).
In anticipation of that, a short teaser has been released on YouTube to give us an idea of what to expect from the short series: Clara Amfo walks around the set and talks to the cast about making the latest film. From the short clips we get here, it seems like everyone really enjoyed going to France.
the plot of A new era sees a Hollywood studio take over Downton to film a new movie, as the main characters cross the Channel to France to visit the widowed Countess’s (Maggie Smith) newly inherited villa, where there is a mystery waiting to be solved.

Creator Julian Fellowes has described it as a “feel-good” sequel, while star Michelle Dockery has said it is “a really fun movie”. However, Lesley Nicol has stated that the film is also going to be an emotional affair.
“It’s absolutely packed with stuff,” she said previously. “There’s so much going on. I mean, it’s funny. I laughed out loud. There are things that made me cry because there’s some romance and things you don’t expect.
“I think I love it so much too. I mean, I know what’s happening, but there will be things that the public couldn’t possibly have foreseen.”
The film’s massive cast list includes returning faces Hugh Bonneville, Laura Carmichael, Jim Carter, Brendan Coyle, Michelle Dockery, Kevin Doyle, Joanne Froggatt, Harry Hadden-Paton, Robert James-Collier, Allen Leech, Phyllis Logan, Elizabeth McGovern, Sophie McShera, Tuppence Middleton, the aforementioned Lesley Nicol, Maggie Smith, Imelda Staunton and Penelope Wilton, while the new cast members are: Hugh Dancy, Laura Haddock, Nathalie Baye, Dominic West and Jonathan Zaccaï.
