Downton Abbey fans reveal they are left in ‘tears’
Downton Abbey fans have confessed that A New Era, the highly anticipated sequel to the historical drama, left them in “tears”.
After seeing the film, which premiered in theaters on Friday, viewers took to Twitter to share their emotional feelings.
Many fans said they laughed and cried as they experienced a “roller coaster of emotions”, while others expressed amazement at the “sad” plot.
One fan tweeted: “I just watched Downton Abbey A New Era”. As expected – absolutely loved it! Such a feel-good movie (some tears too!)’
Another added: “Just wow! There were laughs and there were tears. A new era indeed #DowntonAbbeyANewEra.’
The third fan wrote, “Just watched Downton Abbey A New Era. As expected – absolutely loved it! Such a feel-good movie (some tears too!)’
Another tweeted, ‘Just wow! There were laughs and there were tears. A new era indeed #DowntonAbbeyANewEra.’
Someone wrote: “There is a birth, a death, a marriage proposal and a point of disputed paternity, with all the details knotted together as neatly as if Mr. Carson himself had taken care of them.
“There’s also some real laughs and some unapologetic spin-offs…Downton is the gift that keeps on giving.”
Downton Abbey fans have been eagerly awaiting the final episode, which saw the Crawley family travel to the south of France to solve a mystery at a house attributed to the Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, while an ambitious director was preparing to shoot at Downton.
The video shows the Crawley family travel to the south of France to solve a mystery at a house donated to the Dowager Countess of Grantham, Violet Crawley, while an ambitious filmmaker plots to film at Downton Abbey.
Fan favorite Violet said: “I came into possession of a villa in the south of France.”
She continues: “Years ago, before you were born. I met a man.
It then turns out that the dowager Grantham and her lover “spent a few days together and he gave her a home”.
Hugh Jackman, Michelle Williams, and Penelope Wilton will all return in the upcoming sequel.
In the trailer, Lady Mary (Michelle) discusses the difficulties of marriage and it looks like there may be trouble in heaven for her.
“You don’t need me to remind you that marriage is a romance full of twists and turns along the way,” Lady Mary tells Hugh’s character.
The estate also becomes the backdrop for a movie, and Dominic, who plays a 1920s Hollywood actor, becomes quite the heartthrob among the workers, according to the teaser.
One of the cooks said, “There’s something about him, it’s like a wild animal ready to pounce.
Producer and director Mister Barber begins shooting the film – but the Earl of Grantham, Robert Crawley (Hugh Bonneville) is unimpressed with the fanfare.
he said: ‘I think it’s a horrible idea. Actresses in make-up and actors just in plaster,” as the scene cuts to the Hollywood cast interrupting daily life at Downton.
The teaser also teases that widower Tom Branson will finally find love with maid Lucy Smith, as the two tie the knot in some beautiful scenes.
Meanwhile, Hugh Bonneville has opened up about Maggie Smith’s return to the big screen, revealing he fears his character in Downton Abbey “will die between movies”.
On Friday morning, the actor, who plays Robert Crawley in the period drama and upcoming sequel film, appeared on Magic Radio Breakfast to discuss the new release.
Hugh, 59, also addressed rumors this could be Maggie’s last acting role, saying she always says she’s ‘done’ but then comes back.
“I thought she was going to die between movies,” Hugh said during the interview, “but there she is, popping up like a bad penny and being absolutely business as usual.”
“Every iteration of the series is the ‘this is the last time, that’s it, I’m done’ and here it is again,” the actor joked, adding, “Every iteration of the series is the ‘c ‘is the last time, that’s it, I’m done’ and here she is again.
“She’s on fire in there and, as usual, has all the most beautiful lines, which we don’t mind at all.”
Maggie previously said season six of Downton Abbey would be her final season – which happened to be the show’s final season overall – but she returned for the sequel on the big screen this year.
Julian said of the project, “It really is a new era.” As the 1920s progressed, the world changed in various ways. By the late 1920s, everything had changed, from entertainment to transportation. That’s what we’re talking about there.
Julian sees the Downton Abbey films as a continuation of the hit TV series, which aired for six seasons between 2010 and 2015, and he says the new film will pick up where the previous one left off.
He said: “As we know from the last movie, Mary may not be the titular head of the household, but she does run the show. We go further.
“We’re trying to mark the change – the fact that the Downton Crawleys are almost in the 1930s, which is just the beginning of the modern world.”
